No, it does not.

For those who read English, here is a better link:

Yes.  If you shoot raw+jpg and have enabled the combined raw+jpg option, then the jpg is displayed.

In general, the embedded JPEG found in the RAW file is used.

I have looked into using Microsoft's Windows Imaging Component (it uses the plugin provided by Nikon and others) but it is very slow.  Ten seconds to render a D2X NEF.  We may add support for it in the future.
