DNG support, end-February & end-April 2005

The substantive content of this page was frozen on 27 May 2006.

Pierre-Etienne Courtejoie's histories

Ideally, this information would be provided by links. It originated at the rawformat website. Pierre-Etienne Courtejoie posted lists of many of these products at the ends of February and April 2005. But the rawformat website ceased evolution, and even went into decline, for several months. (This decline appears to be an accident with style sheets rather than a deliberate policy). So I "rescued" the information shown on this page.

So unless I learn that it should be removed from the here, I copy it below, for the states at end-February 2005 and end-April 2005, as originally posted by Pierre-Etienne Courtejoie.

(Pierre-Etienne Courtejoie has continued to send me information that helps me develop these pages).
