Upgraded this morning! Everything seems to work!

Downside: Now in RAW only mode you can't zoom-in to 1:1 to check your focus! The most you can zoom in is (3.4x) which is of course retarded! Thanks Ricoh! They forgot to generate a large enough temporary Jpeg file for zooming purposes.

No, they did not forget anything. People asked for RAW only option (mainly to save card space) and this is exactly what Ricoh engineers implemented. DNG contains only basic preview image (640x480). Adding larger preview to DNG would be against request for RAW only option. 1:1 preview included in DNG would significantly increase the DNG size. If you need 1:1 preview, then simply enable RAW+JPEG option
