Adobe has released Camera Raw 5.5 for Photoshop CS4 (not compatible with earlier versions of Photoshop) and Lightroom 2.5.
Let's see the changes in the new versions:
- add support for new cameras: Nikon D300s, Nikon D3000, Olympus E-P1, Panasonic DMC-FZ35 and Panasonic DMC-GF1 and others. Also a preliminary (and officially not documented) support for newest Canon camera 7D appears to have been introduced.
- improvement to the demosaic algorithm (the way the software interprets the monochromatic output from camera sensor) for sensor with not uniform green response (that is the case for some cameras from Sony, Olympus and Panasonic).
Of course also DNG converter has been updated to version 5.5.
