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.

After a quick test on Win7/64 and Ubuntu Studio 14.04/64 I am glad I can confirm some previous bugs being successfully fixed. Bravo, Masahiro. Some I didn't/wasn't able to check, like "ToolStack dragging needs two click", that didn't happen with stock Java version on my Ubuntu.

 

Moving through thumbnails with arrow keys works fine. The "triangle" bug is gone. Clearing cache works.

 

Wrong black level for Nikon 12-bit .nef that causes too green output (a bug in DCRaw, not LZ itself) is fixed. On Ubuntu I had to clear cache firs to make it work.

 

I also checked the new EOS 7D mkII profile. Looks good, with a possible orientation problem, showing portrait images in landscape mode. I will try to check this later, might be a metadata problem with these files, since some other programs show them correctly and some not. Here is a sample:

One possible Windows-only issue that still bothers me is the "Shrinking Memory Limit" phenomenon, that seems to actually affect LZ performance, described in this rather long thread:

(Ignore the "Recreating of Application Data folder" issue, that was fixed some time ago.)

 

Thank you again, Masahiro, I am aware that you would really need some fresh blood in the dev-team.
