Could be it does not affect sRGB as much, but I only use aRGB or ProPhoto. Here is what happens is you use aRGB. After getting the desired image in SPP(right image) the image is saved to tiff aRGB and opened in CS3(left image). CS3 is set to use the embedded profile. This does not happen in SPP531

To summarize: the processing is correct - ie 5.3.2 does use the correct colour space when generating the JPEG or the Tiff from RAW.

But the X3F review window does not honour the Win / XP machine's monitor colour profile anymore (as does 5.3.1) and as a consequence the colours in the X3F review window are off, as can be seen very clearly in the comparison shot.

In short: it is not possible to make correct X3F adjustments in the review window anymore, becasue the colours displayed are wrong.

This is worse if you have a calibrated monitor; ie using the new (calibrated) colour profile as default and working in a colour space other than sRGB.

Again: if you just use SPP 5.3.2 to generate a Tiff and then process the Tiff in PS, for instance, then you will not have any problems.
