libopenraw is an ongoing project to provide a free software
implementation for camera RAW files decoding. One of the main
reason is that dcraw is not suited for easy integration into
applications, and there is a need for an easy to use API to
build free software digital image processing application.
It also has the goal to address missing feature from dcraw
like meta-data decoding and easy thumbnail extraction.
