From DxO:
 
DxO Optics Pro v7.5.1: 5 new cameras supported and 7,000 DxO Optics Modules available
 
DxO Optics Pro v7.5.1 now supports the Nikon D800E (Elite edition only) and D3200, the Sony SLT A35 and SLT A57, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC GX1. DxO Optics Pro 7 now contains more than 7,000 DxO Optics Modules.
 
MORE EFFECTIVE MOIRÉ REMOVAL FOR THE D800E
 
Since the Nikon D800E does not have an antialiasing (AA) filter, it can be more susceptible to moiré. DxO Optics Pro v7.5.1’s RAW conversion algorithms have been fine-tuned such that the "Remove color moiré" tool works more effectively for this camera to restore the finest details.
 
More information can be found here.
 
B&H carries DxO Optics Pro.

Canon has made EOS 60D Firmware Version 1.1.1 is now available for download.
 
Firmware Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following fixes and improvements.

  • Fixes a phenomenon where the camera's serial number that is displayed in the shooting information of the image does not display the correct serial number. *1)
  • Corrects errors in the Greek, Italian, and Portuguese menu screens.

*1) If the camera's serial number is 2147483648 or higher and the camera firmware is Version 1.1.0 or earlier, the images captured with the camera will be affected by the phenomenon listed in 1. above. This phenomenon only affects the EOS 60D, and does not affect the EOS 60Da. Both of these cameras are equipped with the same firmware. To obtain the serial number correctly in the shooting information of images that are already captured using the old firmware, we are preparing updates for Digital Photo Professional and ZoomBrowser EX /ImageBrowser applications. Once the software updates are ready, we will make an announcement on our Web site.
