Observatory 2.0.5

Observatory 2.0.5 is a bit more conservative with the amount of images it imports simultaneously. Depending on your hardware this change may result in slightly reduced import performance, while RAM usage is roughly halved. Observatory now also allows you to override this automatic concurrency behavior for importing and image processing. You can lower the CPU core allocation manually in the settings if you want to reduce Observatory’s CPU, GPU and RAM usage, or increase it if you want to push your system to its limits.

Another new setting is related to Observatory’s document versioning. This is the feature that lets you restore a library to a previous state. Observatory 2.0.5 allows you to disable it.

The Quick Look extension has improved XISF metadata support and takes the image dimensions into account when opening its window.

More changes are listed in the release notes.
