A few notes on that. First, it says for XP/Vista. It also works on 2000. Second, the new color modes that are available on the K20D can now be applied to shots from the K10D using PhotoLab.

DNG Profiles (Public Beta)

»labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/DNG_Profiles

We have been actively working on improving color rendering for digital raw photographs. Our new color rendering package contains the following components:

• the DNG 1.2 specification, which expands and formalizes the concept of a color profile for raw (i.e., scene-referred) image data captured by digital sensors,
• Adobe Standard camera profiles that significantly improve color rendering, especially in reds, yellows, and oranges,
• Camera Matching profiles that match the camera manufacturers' color appearance,
• DNG Profile Editor, a free software utility for editing camera profiles, and
• this web page, designed to help photographers get the most out of the new camera profiles and the DNG Profile Editor.

The primary new feature added is RAW compatibility.

Here's a link to supported cameras: »apps.corel.com/lp/psppx2/01245/r···TOMERID$

Here's a link to a .pdf showing the differences/features between the new "Ultimate Edition" and prior versions: »www.corel.com/img/content/produc···ison.pdf

Neat Image 32bit v6.0 and 64bit editions

said by neat Image :

Neat Image v6.0 32-bit /Win

* Neat Image now can build noise profile using smaller image areas;
this is useful when the input image contains only small featureless areas
* Increased profiling speed (Auto Profile and Auto Fine-Tune)
* Increased filtration speed (several speed optimizations in the noise filter)

* Improved Neat Image plug-in's controls used to adjust the startup behaviour, settings of the plug-in in Photoshop actions and in smart filters:

The Actions menu is now used to adjust the plug-in behaviour in an action being recorded or in a smart filter being configured.
Also, the same Actions menu is used to configure the default startup behaviour of the plug-in. The old method of using the Defaults in Options is now completely replaced with the Action menu in plug-in. Please see the user guide for more details.

+ Plug-in: added support for Adobe Photoshop CS4 (32-bit)
+ Plug-in: added support for Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0
* Plug-in: improved installer compatibility with localized versions of Photoshop

* Plug-in: improved behavior of the plug-in in smart filters in Photoshop CS4 and CS3
* Plug-in: improved recording of noise profiles and presets in Photoshop actions
* Plug-in: modified error reporting for smoother Photoshop-based batching

* Improved metadata compatibility with Nikon D90, D300, D700, D3, D60, and several more new Nikon cameras
* Improved metadata compatibility with older Nikon DSLR cameras
* Improved metadata compatibility with Nikon D1X with new firmware

* An image sent to Neat Image standalone via "Send To", "Open With" or drag-n-drop to Neat Image icon will now open either in Filtration Queue or Filtration Job Editor depending on the "Auto create new job on startup" setting in Neat Image options

* Improved functionality of "Save Output As" for multiple output images being saved in Filtration Queue (both automatic and manual saving of individual images is now available)

* Cosmetic improvements in the Batch Profiler, Profile Converter, Profile Viewer

* Improved compatibility with some invalid TIFFs saved by Capture 1
* Improved support of some compressed TIFFs

* Improved compatibility with Windows Vista

- Several other bug fixes and corrections

Re: The Software/Update thread

Dynamic Photo HDR new version 4.4

4.4
- Added more advanced setting for RAW images - Auto Developer. This will adjust the input RAW images such way so the produced tonemapped output will be now much closer to the fast preview. There were issues previously when on large files the TM full output would become muddy or would loose brilliance.

4.32
- Updated RAW reading for latest cameras
