Great to hear you're finding Shotwell so useful! It's certainly not too
late for wishlist items or suggestions. We're always looking for more user
input as means of direction.
Regarding image display, performance and scalability is something we're
about to take a hard look at. We want Shotwell to be responsive and smooth
in all circumstances and situations.
I encourage you to check out our Trac system at http://trac.yorba.org Our
wiki there has more information on Shotwell and the other applications we're
working on here at Yorba. If you sign up for Trac, you can add tickets and
make comments on existing ones. (I'll go ahead and add the ones you've
listed.) We also have a PPA at https://launchpad.net/~yorba/+archive/ppa
Thanks for the encouraging words!
