    Just got an email from Bibble Labs that they are now part of Corel.
    When I understand that mail correct B5 gets discontinued and new development will be under Corels new product.

    Bibble was until now my preferred Rawfile converter also running under Linux and Mac; I just hope that Corel keep that multi-platform spirit and the quality.

    Time will tell ...

    It explains the silence coming from bibble labs the last few months.

    I will give it a try for 14 euros (without their ridiculous 'download insurance fee') and hope that pessimists ('Corel has reputation of buying and killing good products') are wrong

    Wow, corel is still around. Maybe I've been living under a rock or something but I hadn't heard anything from them for a long time.

    I don't know about all of their products but Corel Painter beats the crap out of the competition when it comes to digital painting. That being said I'm talking about recreating natural media. Photoshop is easier to use but Corel Painter gets much more realistic results and has a ton more media options.

    Hopefully Bibble will be as good as Painter is.
