A new release of the excellent photo manager shotwell isn’t that far off and from development so far it is packing a few new goodies…

Shotwell 0.8 will allow for downloading of any recorded movie files present on your connected camera. The team say that ‘it makes sense to catalogue videos and photos in the same app, using an unified interface.

As someone with a camera primarily used for HD movie capture alongside the occasional still I for one will appreciate the ease this will place on my workflow.

The release won’t just see downloading of videos from your devices either – support for YouTube and Picasaweb uploading is also being added.

Shotwell 0.8 is due for release in December.
