Canon has released DPP (Digital Photo Pro) v2.0.3. From this link, select the option for Drivers/Software. This updater download requires a previous Canon RIC (Raw Image Converter) to be installed on the computer being updated. Some nice enhancements have been added including real time sharpening and a PS Healing Brush-like tool. Hint: Canon does listen to our requests - sometimes at least. A complete list of changes/enhancements is included on the download page.
