New beta version 20180318 of KARWY-SR

There's now a new 20180318 beta test version of KARWY-SR, my free software tool to credibly repair compressed ARW2 files suffering this stripe problem. It's still far from perfect, but dramatically improves most affected ARW2 files, which can then be processed normally using whatever raw image workflow you wish.

The entry point for KARWY-SR is http://aggregate.org/DIT/KARWY-SR. It runs entirely as javascript in your WWW browser, but I would be particularly interested in any feedback toward improving it or in copies of any afflicted images. The tool doesn't collect images (like I said, it runs entirely locally in your browser), but I would appreciate people either posting their afflicted raw files publically via this forum or sending me links via private messaging/email. The more examples we get, the better the tool can become at fixing them. 

Note: the texture synthesis code isn't turned on yet in this 20180318 version, and the tool will hopefully also get better in other ways, so don't throw away your original ARW2 files yet -- they will probably be able to be repaired better by a later version. That's what beta test version means....
