In addition to the list of features listed below by Adam, 0.12
includes quite a few fixes to the Piwigo plugin that should make it
more reliable and better at handling errors so I would appreciate if
Piwigo users could give it a go.
Similarly, the re-factoring of the F-Spot import was the opportunity
to include stability and error handling fixes so if you had issues
with the old version, please try this one out.
