The new release adds support for eleven new digital camera and camera back models from Canon, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Phase One and Sony, as well as extending support for a couple of Raw file formats. A couple of bugs related to Hasselblad and Leaf Raw file processing have been squashed in Raw Developer 1.8.4. The update also improves rendering of preview images, and improves processing of Raw images from certain Fujifilm, Olympus and Sinar products.
