    Luminance HDR 2.0.2-pre1

    A pre release of Luminance HDR 2.0.2 is out. It is stable and reliable but could contain undiscovered bugs, that’s why you should download and test it before the official release of 2.0.2.

    You can download using these links:

    [ Windows (32-bit) ]
    [ Mac OS X (32-bit, Intel) ]
    [ Source Code ]

    I also made available an rpm for Fedora 12 x86_64 and a src.rpm for the same distribution.

    Thanks to Davide Anastasia’s work, it is more stable and faster than ever. It has also more options for RAW conversion thanks to libraw which is now used in place of dcraw.

    Please download and test it. If you spot a bug, we will appreciate a bug report on the Tracker that indicates version of Luminance, OS and the exact list of steps to replicate the behaviour.


    Update (08/Dic/2010): A new Mac OS X build is available. The previous one was not working correctly with Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.x. Enjoy!
