[Digikam-users] Differences in Pentax raw files?

I've come across an unexpected issue when I got my hands on a Pentax K-3
For years I've been shooting with raw .PEF files using a K100 and
Digikam has handled them beautifully. With the new camera I decided to
continue using PEF files, but I've run into a bit of a road-block.
When I download the images into Digikam the thumbnails show up as
expected, and clicking on the image shows the embedded JPEG preview.
The Exif information appears to show normally from what I can see... but
when I open the raw file in the editor it shows (in what sort've looks
like a console font) "CANNOT DECODE RAW IMAGE".
Running Digikam from the console I see the output: IMGP0420.PEF: data
corrupted at 160706
I started on the assumption that this may be a newer variation on the
Pentax raw format, and that some of my libraries were not up to date.
I updated ufraw, which fixed the issue of importing the files in The
GIMP, but not in Digikam. I assume Digikam's ability to handle raw
files is hooked into KDE... so I tried upgrading libkdcraw but this
doesn't seem to have had an effect.
I'd appreciate any suggestions that could help me out with this issue!
