RAW format update coming for Mac OS, says Apple product manager  
Tuesday, January 29, 2008 | by Rob Galbraith
In a recent posting in Apple's Aperture support forums, Joe Schorr, Sr. Product Line Manager for Photo Applications at Apple, hints that updated RAW format support is coming soon to the Mac OS.
 
Following Apple company policy, he doesn't say when, or what new camera RAW files will be supported, though it's a fair guess that the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, Nikon D300 and D3 will be among those added and that Aperture, iPhoto and other programs that draw on this OS-level code to display and convert RAW format photos will be the beneficiaries of this update, when it comes.
 
The content of Schorr's January 23, 2008 post is below. The forum thread containing the post is here.
 

As I'm sure many of you know, it's not Apple's policy to provide a public "ETA" on future releases, so I can't post anything like a timetable for when support for the newest RAW camera formats will become available.

But I can tell you this. We at Apple are ACUTELY aware of the pressing need to get support for the newest round of camera into your hands as soon as possible. This is a top priority. We have members of our own team using these cameras, so you can imagine how interested we are in seeing this support integrated into the Mac OS and our photo applications!

We fully intent to give our customers what they need in this regard.

Thanks!
