Even though PhotoQt v1.5 is only a few days old, I have heard from some users about some difficulties they had in getting the required dependency QtCharts installed. It appears that this QML module is not shipped by all distributions as it's a rather new module (even though it doesn't state this on the respective documentation page). This issue is addressed with this release.

Later as originally planned, but finally it is here: The beta for version 0.9 of Photo! A lot of work has gone into it. Pretty much the complete code has been re-written and re-structured. Many bugs have been avoided and features added/fixed. Now, before the final release comes out, I want to add some time of testing, also to give the translators a little time to translate the many new/changed strings.
