The updates add support for seven new digital camera Raw file formats from six different manufacturers - Canon, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Ricoh. Three bugs affecting images shot with certain Nikon and Olympus digital SLRs have also been fixed simultaneously.
The new cameras whose Raw files are now supported by ACDSee Pro Photo Manager 2.0, 2.5 and Photo Manager 2009 are the Canon EOS Rebel T1i (aka Canon 500D / Canon Kiss X3), Leica D-LUX 4, Nikon Coolpix P6000, Nikon D3x, Olympus E-30, Pentax K2000 (aka Pentax K-m), and the Ricoh GX200. Courtesy of ACD, the precise list of bugs which have been squashed in the new versions is as follows:
Incorrect decoding which resulted in a severe green overtone with images from the Olympus E-3 camera
Image dimensions not matching manufacturer's dimensions for some Olympus camera models
RAW camera images taken with DX format lens on full frame Nikon cameras which look cropped in ACDSee
