I am aware of this, but since I like to use only one photographic software, and that is Affinity Photo, I keep on reporting this matter. Hoping for an update to LensFun (soon..!?) or a better RAW data handler.

 

We've just got a lensfun update, which will be available in the next beta :-)

Hi, we don't make any announcements about future dates, or number of betas. The short answer is, it'll be ready when it's ready - we don't rush for release dates :-).

In the previous beta release the distort filter perspective was very good as well as in the current final version 1.6.1.93. But in this current beta this filter absolutely do not work. This is very strange. Why very well implemented features are destroyed in upcoming versions???

'cause sometimes new stuff  introduces changes that affect other stuff. I've seen it happen in development teams, constantly. Not a strange or new thing at all. Even as a user, it's often even told as a warning, that the new A feature disabled B feature temporarily. Etc. Specially common in beta software, tho. (anyhow, that's just my ignorant take at it, haha)

Well, I know you folks will drop everything to solve this mystery.  I installed the ....99 beta the other day and ran it for a while to check the installation and some of the things I use a lot.  It ran quite nicely.  This evening, I thought I might actually do some editing and I started the program using the run as Administrator option.  I was very surprised to see the version number on the flash start logo revert to the previous beta ....98.   The old version was also listed in About screen on the help menu.  I reinstalled the newer version using the same downloaded file from the other day, and it correctly displayed the latest version number.  I am wondering what it will show next use.  I don't believe this is critical, merely curious.  Thanks for a great program and all  your hard work.

Hello @Iam1of2,

 

why would you want to run the program as administrator? I am not aware of any advantage.

OTOH I just did so on my computer and the splash screen displays the current version number correctly (.99). For both ADe and APh.

That was the result of an accidental mouse click on the right click menu.  After reinstalling the beta from the original download, it (old version display) did not reappear today, but correctly indicated the proper version.  I just thought some weird behavior, maybe unimportant, should be reported.  Odd that it occurred..

Oh, it would be fun if the next beta was build .127 :D
