New software announcement: DXO Optics version 5

DXO has announced that version 5 of DXO Optics is coming soon. Mais oui! The Windows version is coming out in late October and the Mac version a month later. Everyone who bought version 4.5 on or after August 1, 2007 will get a free upgrade to version 5. This is of interest because it's a major release, with a nextgen RAW converter, new noise removal technology, a few more new features and upgrades.

The price will be $170 and $250 for standard and elite, and the upgrades from previous versions will be $95 and $125.

More reaction to this at RG, Photoshop News, dpnow.com, Imaging Insider, dpreview News forum, and ephotozine among others.

Update!
And since we are on the topic of software, dpreview informs us that version 10 of ACDSee Photo Manager has been announced for $50, or if purchased with the Photo Editor for $80. Not to be confused with the ACDSee Pro line of software.
