- Support has been removed for Samsung NX10, NX11, and NX20

- Fixed stripe on the edge of the image for many camera models with the Scarab demosaic method (this was only visible zoomed in)

- Fixed black level/calibration issues (reddish shadows) the software had with Leica and Panasonic cameras, and on many Canon, Nikon, Olympus, and Pentax models.

- Improved image quality with the Hybrid demosaic method

- Reduced purple glow around highlights with the Scarab and hybrid demosaic methods

- Fixed some artifacts that would occasionally appear in highlights with the Scarab demosaic and hybrid methods

- Fixed a bug, which resulted in poor detail rendition with the default Scarab demosaic algorithm on many cameras (Canon and Sony not affected)

- Improved highlight recovery

- Fixed a crash bug that occurred with a few raw files from some camera models

- Fixed support for the Olympus E-M10 Mark II

- Created workaround for buggy behaviour when editing a slider value while the crop tool is open

- Fixed a small memory leak (each time when editing a slider value)

- Delete on keyboard now deletes current image (ie. keyboard short-cut for delete)

- Changed the default black level, saturation, vibrance, and the tone curve for more natural colours and better contrast.

- Better resilience to damaged raw files

- Fixed white level (occasional purple or overly clamped highlights) on: Canon 80D, Leica D-Lux 5, Nikon D200, Panasonic FZ330, DMC-G1, G5, D80, Sony A65, and some variants of the A55

- Performance optimizations

- Added matching for Japanese/American names of Canon camera models to identify them: Kiss X7i (700D), REBEL T6i / X8i (750D), 8000D / Rebel T6s (760D), Kiss X70/ REBEL T5 (1200D), Kiss X80/ REBEL T6 (1300D)

- New thumbnails are now automatically loaded when files are added to the current directory. This allows one to already start processing the pictures while copying them from the memory card.

- Fixed a crash bug, which occurred in version 2.23 with Nikon P330, P7700, and P7800 raw files

- Corrected dark edges problem on Canon PowerShot S95.

- Fixed a memory leak, which occurred when deleting an image.

- Changed default vibrance to 0.10 and the black level back to 0.01.

- A small optimization for faster loading (and slightly increased memory consumption).

- Fixed a texture filtering problem on the right edge of the image (it didn't affect the saved image).

- Fixed a tiny imprecision with image rotation.

- The error dialog window for unsupported cameras is now always on top.

- A change in the handling of mouse capture events.

- Much better resilience to damaged raw files

- Removed support for Canon EOS 20D (crashes in 2.23)

- Small code changes preparing for a 64 bit version



- 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



- 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%)
