LibRaw is a library for reading RAW files obtained
from digital photo cameras (CRW/CR2, NEF, RAF,
DNG, and others). LibRaw is based on the source
codes of the dcraw utility, though some of the
drawbacks of dcraw have been eliminated. The users
of the library are provided with an API to be used
when writing their software programs.

11 new cameras: Canon 6D and EOS M, Casio EX-ZR100, Fujifilm X-E1, Leica D-LUX6 and V-LUX4, Nikon P7700, Olympus XZ-2, Panasonic G5, Samsung EX2F, Sony RX-1. There are new API calls. LibRaw::is_fuji_rotated() returns true for files, and needs a 'fuji_rotate()' call on postprocessing.
LibRaw::recycle_datastream() frees the file handle (and associated file buffer) if your application will not call unpack.
50+ new cameras are supported, including Fuji X-Pro1 and new Sigma/Foveon cameras. The RawSpeed library can be used for raw data decoding (2-3x faster).
Many changes in internals; source level compatible with the 0.14 branch.
This release supports new cameras: Canon 5D Mark III, G1 X, 1D X, and Powershot SX200, Nikon D4, D800/D800E, and D3200, Fuji X-S1 and HS30EXR, Casio EX-Z8, Olympus E-M5, Panasonic GF5, Sony NEX-F3, SLT-A37, and SLT-A57, and Samsung NX20 and NX210. It also supports updated Samsung NX200 firmware.
Casio EX-Z500 support. I/O exceptions handling on file open are caught. A possible read-after-buffer in the Sony ARW2 decoder is fixed. mingw32 errors when compiling LibRaw_windows_datastream are fixed. Makefile.msvc: support for OpenMP and LCMS (uncomment to use). Fixes for decoding of some Leaf Aptus II files.
Bugfixes in black level subtraction code for PhaseOne files. A new API call LibRaw::get_internal_data_pointer() for developers who need access to libraw_internal_data fields (i.e. Fuji SuperCCD layout). Doc/API-overview fixes to reflect 0.14 changes.
