The micaToolbox supports Windows, Mac & Linux

Version 2.2.0 brings in some major changes to the way RAW files are opened (uses LibRAW instead of DCRAW), and also includes new features such as affine-transform image alignment. These features are all fairly new and untested, so we’re leaving the old (more stable and tested) version here until the new features have been more thoroughly tested.
