CODEC: 1.2 vs 1.3

There are 2 Codecs listed in the Canon downloads window for Windows Xp:
Canon RAW Codec 1.2; posted 7-10-08
Canon RAW Codec 1.3; posted 5-13-08

The older version 1.2 was posted after 1.3. Which one is the most current? I trust I don't need both(?).

I already asked Canon about this

Version 1.3 is the newest, they just posted 1.2 on their site afterwards for anyone who may need or want it. Why, I don't know, but that's what I was told by a rep from Canon.

Re: CODEC: 1.2 vs 1.3

They provide the 1.2 v because that works with Microsoft Pro Photo Tools. The 1.3 doesn't yet. The latest 1.2 has added support for Vista.
