Microsoft release their RAW Thumbnailer and Viewer

Microsoft has released their new RAW Thumbnailer and Viewer for download. The new "PowerToy" (as Microsoft have described it), allows the viewing of Canon RAW and Nikon RAW files as well as TIFF images and other standard image formats. The utility comes as a joint Windows XP shell extension which provides preview, edit and print functionality for RAW files and as a RAW viewer. The 47 MB download is available here and requires the Microsoft .NET Framework (included in the installation) and Windows XP SP2.
