So I have to enable a non-default repository whose name is
"**Unsupported** updates"?

Why not just ship this as a regular update; almost every single Ubuntu
user who uses digikam is going to be exposed to this bug, and if not
then by the sound of it probably some other known/fixed bug. Shipping
the fixes to those issues, in a way that the average Ubuntu user will
actually receive them, seems like the obvious thing to do.

I can understand if the bugs were only fixed in digikam-1.1 then that
would be shipped in a separate opt-in backports repository to aleviate
any compatibility issues. However, a minor version upgrade from a beta
release to the final release of a software is something that belongs in
a given distro version's updates repository. If Ubuntu isn't willing to
take that policy, it shouldn't choose to ship beta software in the
initial release, or it's dooming itself to this kind of issue.
