We have a new round of beta testing coming

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Pavel and Masahiro from the Dev Team have been working hard lately to get a new Windows build ready with new compiling tools.  Pavel ran into a bad snag, and once again Masahiro found a way to fix it.  So now we are getting close to being ready to beta test the next, new release of LightZone, (read more, click the link below...)

....with the addition of new (old) tools rescued by Doug, new raw profiles by Doug, and a couple of other tweaks and bug fixes by Masahiro, including a larger font. So we once again need some beta testers.  Please respond to this call using the comments link at the bottom of this post.  Remember to tell us your OS---this is for all OS's.

Would love to beta test

If you send it, I'll try to break it.

Like Janis said... ;-).  Your OS?


Don't bother with me. I registered from the very beginning and never got the link for the first test so just don't bother. I am confident you won't anyway..

I'm sorry...what?  I

I'm sorry...what?  I apologize that you didn't get the first link.  Do you think I did that on purpose?

Please in future just give me a reminder rather than stewing about it or getting angry at a perceived slight.  I answered maybe a couple of hundred requests for that link.  It's a bit of work running this site, and sometimes things get past me---Can you claim perfection?  You do understand it's not a paid gig, and we're working on this in our "spare" time?  Maybe next time consider a minute or two before throwing stones.

Vista and Fuji interest

Hi Tex,

I am interested in having a go at testing. My concern is seeing whether DCRAW 9.19 is included. This had solved the "zipper" problem of earler versions, when applied to Fujifilm X-E1 RAF files. I have several examples showing a zipper effect in Lightzone output, which was not present in DCRAW output.

Thanks for all your work, I have found Lightzone a joy to use.

Cheers Eric

Yes, dcraw 9.19 is included.
