- Improved image sharpness.
- Improved color correction algorithm.
- Improved glass and metalic surfaces reflections quality.
- Reduced image desaturation.
- Reduced default bloom power.

- Lighting improvements.
- Reduced SSAO darkening effect a bit.

Configuration Software:

- New parameter for choosing the desired Bloom intensity (bright light glow effect). 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% intensity preset are available. Bloom can't be disabled completly as it's required for others enhancement effects. The default value of 50% should suit most users.
