The Samsung photo programs Digimax Convert, Digimax RAW Convert, Digimax Reader, Digimax Biz Reader, and Digimax Mater are compatible with the new operating system, according to the company website, although Digimax Viewer is not. Digimax Viewer will then be replaced by Digimax Mater.

Samsung will soon update their site with firmware upgrades.
