So is LR v8.2 ok to install and run on Mac? I read some early accounts of crashing, then the install itself vanished from my Adobe Creative Cloud app (and now that app itself has vanished but that's another story). Are you having success with LR v8.2 on Mac other than perhaps with the new "enhanced details" feature?

I actually think that we should create a new thread for every new LR update for people to post issues and successes, because some of the LR updates over the past few years were a bit buggy. Sharing information is the best way to check this out fast.

Thank you.

It's fine here too. The only notable potential issue, other than the Enhance Details ones, is an issue sending photos from LR to PS if they're stored on a NAS.

The blog post comments tends to be a pretty good place to check for feedback, and I usually update it within a couple of days with any big issues that are cropping up: What's New in Lightroom Classic CC 8.2 (February 2019)? | The Lightroom Queen

I haven't updated my Mac to Mojave or updated LR. Which should I do first?

Probably does not make any difference which you do first but I would do them separately and give it some time in between to let any possible problems appear. Especially in the case of the Mojave upgrade you should make sure that you have a full system backup first.
