Photivo emerged from dlRaw-preview! Check it out!
On this page you can find information about dlRaw an open source and platform independent RAW converter. It is based on dcraw and features corrections driven by lensfun and a processing pipe with enhancement and creative filters which work on 16 bit linear data.
At the moment there are two versions of dlRaw, the version from the SVN trunk on sourceforge, which Jos, the original founder of dlRaw, maintains, and the dlRaw-preview version maintained by me. The current SVN version has a flexible processing pipe, although that is not yet integrated in the GUI. So every user can set the order of the filters to his/her preferences, allowing a flexible workflow. The dlRaw-preview version is built upon SVN 139 and features a lot more or enhanced filters for the pipe, mainly for creative purposes. But the pipe here is still fixed. The plan is, that the two versions will be merged again, after a stable release with flexible pipe.
In October Jos announced that he will not work on dlRaw any further. Without his help I won't switch to the SVN version with the flexible backend soon, since it is already a lot of work to maintain the preview version. However, once the preview could be considered final I should be able to find the time to switch.
Latest release: 20091024.
