    Greetings.

    On March 7, 2018, DxO Labs chose to file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection and is now in the process of restructuring the business.

    We are very confident that this procedure, which should not last for more than a few more weeks, will not affect our customers in any way. In fact, we are pleased to announce the following upcoming product releases:

    • In June, we will release a free update (version 1.2) of our flagship software, DxO PhotoLab. Recently awarded the TIPA 2018 Award for Best Image Processing Software, this latest version of DxO PhotoLab will include improved local correction features, and will add support for 7 cameras, including the Canon EOS 2000D and the Sony A7 III. This release will also be an opportunity for us to reiterate our commitment to the “perpetual license” model (as opposed to a subscription model) that allows our customers to update their products according to their needs, rather than in a constrained manner.

    • In June, we will release the new version of the Nik Software Collection, which DxO acquired from Google at the end of 2017. Much awaited by the Nik software community, this first “by DxO” version focuses on fixing bugs that up until now could disrupt the user experience, as well as on ensuring full compatibility with the latest Mac OS and PC platforms.
    Thank you for your understanding and confidence,

    The DxO Team

    Yes. Often companies will go into bankruptcy just to reorganize their debt. It was huge back in the 90's when interest rates were dropping and they did this to save interest payments. Sometimes it is to try and consolidate debt with one lender.

    Aside from fixing bugs in Nik I wonder what other changes they made for it?

    I saw a notice on their website some time ago indicating that the release would be soon. I really wouldn't expect any great effort at improving the Collection, more likely to have it serve as a stepping stone to their PhotoLab application.

    The recognition by TIPA is interesting. www.tipa.com/en-en/awards/dxo-photolab

    The only one of the Nik Collection I've really used is Silver Efex, although I usually prefer Skylum Tonality for B&W conversions nowadays.
    It will be interesting to see what DxO do with Nik though...
