Project Name: [digiKam] Rewrite database KIO-slaves as pure Qt5 with multithreading

A Brief Description: Originally, KIO-Slaves was implemented to run database queries in a separate process to prevent problems with SQlite. Since SQlite support queries from separate threads, KIO-slaves can be dropped, and a new API can be implemented using pure Qt threads API. This will improve digiKam portability, and permit adjusting CPU cores assigned to database processes efficiently.


  • Dropping dependency on KIO-Slaves:
    In progress
  • Patching the database files:
    In progress
  • Creating GUI dedicated to controlling multithreading:
    In progress
  • Writing test code:
    In progress
  • Documentation:
    In progress
  • Benchmarking:
    In progress
