"Fuji-X series camera are currently not supported"

This means that there are future plans to support the Fuji  X-trans sensor demosaicing or it is just an inaccurate formulation?

The message says that Fuji X series cameras are currently not supported.

This is all it says. It's accurate.

As far as I've learnt from several sources, DxO uses it's own algorithm to demosaic the "common" Bayer patterned raw images. DxO's magic does not work with Fuji's proprietary pattern.

Nevertheless, other applications do work with Fuji's pattern. DCRAW for example. From a customer point of view, there seems to be no special hurdle to overcome except maybe DxO's commitment to quality or it's financially oriented approach. A few years ago market leaders were Canon, Nikon, Sony and fourth, Fuji...

Seems a perfect answer from Platypus. What was the point missed?

I think he is trying to say that the wording used suggests that it "may" be supported in the future. That is all. If there are no plans to ever support Fuji, then perhaps they should state that more emphatically rather than cryptically.
