Is it considered meta to be talking about metadata? I sure hope so, because that's what we're talking about here. This release is all about the metadata in your images. We found a bug, thanks to you (the community) and have fixed it in this release. No longer will resizing, adding watermarks or editing your images strip out metadata.
