    Thanks, Kofa, for your diligence in keeping us informed about the progress and new releases of Darktable. Love to see improved support for HEIF image files. 👏

    Looking forward to the additional color mixing capabilities (if I understand that correctly).

    Have a happy and safe Holiday season! 🎄
