Iridient Digital releases Iridient Developer 2.3.2 for Mac OS X
Pacific Grove, CA, November 14, 2013 -- Iridient Digital, Inc. has released Iridient Developer 2.3.2.
The Iridient Developer 2.3.2 update can now be downloaded here: http://www.iridientdigital.com/products/rawdeveloper_download.html
This update includes a critical fix for an issue with some adjustment sliders (exposure, others) on non-English systems running Mac OS X 10.6.8 that was introduced in the 2.3.1 changes for decimal text entry fields. Edge case artifacts from some noise reduction methods specific to the preview window at high zoom magnification levels have also been eliminated and a potential issue with large resizing (400%+) of high megapixel (24MP+) images using the new UltraRez scaling methods has been addressed. Numerous improvements have been made to Sigma SD/DP Merrill processing with this update from greatly improved bad pixel mapping to new default ICC profiles to better handling of lens color cast corrections.
RAW image support has been added for the following new cameras:
Olympus: Stylus 1
Phase One: IQ280, IQ260, IQ260 Achromatic, IQ160 and IQ140
Nokia: Lumia 1020
Blackmagic: Pocket Cinema Camera
