XCF are already manageable under digiKam. KDE4 has a thumbnailer. You will see the preview. Add XCF file extension to digiKam type mime setup

XCF do not support Exif and XMP. There is no way to do something in digiKam for this point.

Git commit d9a57550ee4d08f1ab612723b315348af9bab9da by Gilles Caulier.

Pushed by cgilles into branch 'master'.

Switch all digiKam bundles to last 5.70 which now support new Gimp XCF file format.
See KF5 release announcement : https://kde.org/announcements/kde-frameworks-5.70.0.php
"KImageFormats: Add support for modern Gimp images/XCF files"
This will permit to digiKam and Showfoto to show XCF thumbnail and load preview/full image (read only)
