digiKam image editor 0.9.0 will handle RAW file formats with all dcraw options to decode image and an advanced ICC color profile support to render properly image in editor.

This is not possible to reproduce all internal digiKam features in this plugin (16 bits supports, preview like an editor, ICC, histogram correction etc.) and this is a non-sence to share all digikam core (API) with this plugin.

This plugin is dedicaced to hosts will support 8 bits images only not 16 bits. It will be disabled in digiKam in the future because an advanced batch Raw converter will be created in digiKam core using all digiKam API. This is necessary for pro-photographs RAW files workflow (like bibble program do).
Also, Single Raw converter is a non-sence because digiKam image editor can do it better (:=))...

In Fact, this plugin cannot be used by pro-photograph. Sure, it's can be improved (Exif preservation for example), and i will continue to maintain it in the future.

I close this file now...
