Little things that matter in language design
I am also a fan of its simplistic approach, not wanting to "import" anything. And for viewing it's hands down the best I've seen -- keyboard shortcuts that make sense (all the others seem to botch that somehow).

- no view with "thumbnails on the right" anymore (on widescreen monitor with 3:2 aspect ratio of photos it really hurts)
- "ask before deleting" does not work for me (it still deletes unconditionally, and in Preferences it is unchecked even though I have enabled it before.
- photos are displayed 1:1, i.e. not fitted to the screen size. The "fit to screen size" is reset when I advance to the next image. And it still does not work when the thumbnails are displayed - the "screen size" is computed with the thumbnails area included, so I have to scroll even in the "fit to screen size" mode.
It is a huge step back for me and I am looking for a replacement for gthumb.

The "ask before deleting" bug is real, but has not been reported, for example.

I don't see any problems with screen zooming, however. What do you have set at Edit > Preferences > Viewer > After loading an image?

which are either mostly ignored by GDM developers, or are closed as WONTFIX or DEFERRED. I think when it comes to usability reports, it is clearly a decision of the development team to make the application look like they want.

Please do file gThumb bugs (in the upstream bugzilla, not the redhat one). The 2.11.x series is in active development, and feedback is both helpful and necessary.

I will look into gthumb usability issues after I manage to upgrade my primary workstation to F13 (some time next week). It seems that gthumb developers provide better reaction time and attitude than gdm ones :-)

Fixing bugs and enhancing usability are the current priorities:
