libopenraw only support 10% of libkdcraw features !

All planned libopenraw features are already done in libkdcraw.

So, there is no way to toogle to libopenraw.

Thomas, back here into around 5 years when libopenraw will be more mature. Also, i  recommend libopenraw to ask with Dave Coffin to include/maintain/add directly dcraw code in core of library. This will be a real progress to RAW decoding under Linux.

libkdcraw have been developped to make a C++ library interface around dcraw, not to fork Dave Coffin code. It's a waste of time to re-invent the wheel and we don't have more time to re-implement dcraw has a pure library ! This is a major problem of opensource to not group developers around the same project instead to work individually on the same subject.

So libkdcraw is perfect for digiKam & co...
