"In the two years since developer Gabor Horvath switched from a proprietary licensing system to the GPLv3, a small team of contributors has grown up around the RawTherapee code. Many are users of non-Linux OSes, which is good for the outreach side of promoting open source. On the RawTherapee downloads page, you can grab installers for Windows and Mac machines, as well as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the application packaged for the Ubuntu and Gentoo distributions. A separate page lists build for other distros, including Fedora.

"In my opinion, the wealth of download offerings listed on the page is a bit confusing, as is the "filter tool" at the top and the need to click on individual items to see their details. Even after you narrow your choices down to "stable, Linux, 32-bit" there are several identically-named (and identically-detailed) packages. Only the actual file names reveal that one package has the debug symbols turned on."
