    The RAW Developer now includes the TruePic VII Highlight and Shadow Control, but it seems to be inactivated for the E-P5 Raw files.

    I see that Olympus did not correct in version 1.1 an issue in 1.02 I reported to them in June. Under the Raw tab, some items show a setting in brackets. For example, Picture Mode says [Natural]. This is the current setting, right? No, it is the default setting! [corrected: it's the setting in your camera] You must click on the item to see the current setting.

    It took me a long time to figure this out. I think it's very misleading. I finally decided it wasn't worth the trouble to go back over all my RAW images to see what items had been set differently than I expected.

    It's not the default-setting of the Viewer but the setting of your camera while taking the pic, therefore what your OOC-Jpeg was like.

    Anyway, I'd like to access the Highlights/Shadows-tab and why is there still no automatic compensation for chromatic aberrations? I never seem to get it right manually :(

    I took a test shot and you're right. Thanks for the correction.

    I still think it would be better if it showed the current setting, which is what naturally comes to mind when you see a setting listed next to a parameter. And you wouldn't have to open the parameter menu to see how it's set as you do now.

    Incidentally, Help no longer works. When I press F1, it says, "No Help file is found. Update software first before using it." I uninstalled it and then reinstalled with the same result.

    I suppose it's still dog slow...

    Yep, and interestingly for me, it now allows adding exif data to 16bit TIFF exports.
