Apart from that there are the following changes in the new version:

  • newer internal copies of rawspeed and libraw which are used for unpacking Raw images;
  • gamut clipping is fixed in the processing pipeline;
  • improved OpenCL support;
  • all kinds of smaller fixes.

Some other new features are ready, but will become part of next releases. One of them is a reworked color picker with a-la Photoshop and GIMP sample points functionality. Another new tool in works is a Levels plug-in, also part of Robert's GSoC project.
