    I quickly just checked a list of supported files through google and it doesn't look like it does. Might be wrong but on first look it doesn't.

    If you need a free Raw editor look at Raw Shooter Essentials Right at bottom for free version as a few people use this here.

    It does, but you need the dcraw plugin. dcraw forms the basis for most of the RAW converters out there, so it does a good job.
