I bought the upgrade to the pro version 11 last year.
Cracking bit of software imo.

The last version I bought was 9, so this is nice freebie upgrade. It is, as you say Alf, a cracking piece of software, but it has never supported Fuji cameras (at least none of the ones I've had), as Paul says.

Ive just had a play with a file from my Fuji S5 pro.
Was a jpeg file and I just downloaded the module for it myself via the dxo optics modules tab at the top of the workspace.
Which Fuji cam are you referring to ?
There are 5 or 6 modules listed that can be installed

The last Fuji I had was an X20. There was no support for the HS50 or the older ones I had before that either - all of them shot RAW files. I sold the X20 when I got the TG4 for my birthday, and I used the proceeds to buy a rather nice Les Paul 😀

Seriously Paul it would be worth using jpgs to run through DXO, some of the editing tools are simply best in class.

Not had  play yet but I`ll give it a try. Since getting the xt10 I`ve been trying to perfect jpegs straight out of camera and only done a couple of raw shots. The silkypix raw converter from Fuji is a bit clunky and I haven`t updated LR and CS 6 so cannot handle raws anywhere else other than dng conversion. Pretty happy with the Fuji jpegs in my choice of film simulation with some tweaking in Nik effects and Topaz so far when i touch them at all.

I had a play, thanks for the link! It takes a bit of getting used to and the noise reduction is Fab! Ultimate control for images, I do like it and it ties in nicely with LR and PS, but not sure how to fit it in on huge workflows (100+ images) yet.
