Ixus 960 Sporadic RAW bug - Any progress

HI

Can anyone tell me if there has been any progress on the sporadic raw bug with the IXUS 960IS.  I understand that a fix has been identified but it needs implementing individually depending on camera model.  The Bug report is here

http://chdk.kernreaktor.org/mantis/view.php?id=298

The reason i am so interested is that i have a diving trip coming up in a few weeks and would love more reliable raw performance from my camera.  I tend not to use flash (it just causes back scatter in murky UK waters) but also sometime like to just hit the shutter release quickly inthe hope that i might get a good result (sometimes with waves/current its the only option i have)

It would be great if someone could have a look at this for me.  I would do it myself only i have absolutley no idea where to begin even.

Cheers

Chris

p.s. if you live anywhere near me and can fix this there is a few beers in it for you :)

Find a checkin in SVN that fixed this bug for another camera, using the changelog http://tools.assembla.com/chdk/log/trunk eg http://tools.assembla.com/chdk/changeset/712
Figure out what that checkin did and make the equivalent changes to the code for your camera.

If you don't know C and assembler, learn those first.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Hmmm, its the C and assembler bit thats the problem.  Oh well i guess i'll just have to be a bit more patient and hope some kind soul gets does it for me :)  I'll be keeping an eye on the bug report.

Cheers
