Tested it locally and didn't notice unregular.

So I assume that the depency libexif can be removed
This task depends upon

Hi, I'm the upstream developer.

The dependency on libexif is indeed not needed anymore.

EDIT: Removed some false statement about the tarball source URL.

The information in the `sxiv.install` file needs to be updated, too. The thumbnail cache directory is now located at `~/.sxiv/cache`.
