Version history:



2.22-2.23

- Added support for Nikon  D5, D500, and Olympus E-M10 Mark II

- Improved colour rendition with recovery (ie. less desaturation)

- Tweaked colour temperature slider

- Potentially fixed a rarely occurring glitch with sliders

- Some information text is now broken onto multiple lines if it doesn't fit on the screen

- Slightly improved noise filter

- ISO is now displayed as "unknown" for some raw files, where the program doesn't know how to get this data.

- Changed the crop tool window

- Disabled double-click on split tone sliders

- Set default vibrance setting and black level to 0

- Removed support for X-Trans sensors for now

- Other small changes

 

2.21

- Fixed a memory leak, which could lead to a crash after going through hundreds of pictures

- Fixed the crop tool window on Windows 8

- A new experimental demosaic method (can be chosen in the Options menu and is called "Hybrid")

- Small performance optimizations

- Tweaks to highlight recovery

- Changed "Automatic" resize mode to use Lánczos filtering for reduction (sharper results)

- Fixed edge filtering problems of the thumbnail display

- A button in the preferences for manually clearing the thumbnail cache

- Potentially fixed the noise filtered version of the image occasionally not being displayed after the noise filter finished (note: the noise filtered version is still only shown for zoom >=50%)

- Potentially better resilience from damaged raw files

- Fixed purple highlights on Olympus E-3, XZ-1

- Support has been added for: Nikon 1 V3, 1 J4, D3300, D5500, D7200, Olympus E-PL6, E-PL7, E-M10, E-M5Mark II, SH-2, Pentax K-S1, Samsung NX30

- Added support for Olympus OM-D E-M1

- Fixed purple highlights on Canon EOS 700D.

- Multi-threaded PPG demosaic algorithm.

- Fixed flipped thumbnails on (the officially not supported) Leica M9.
