Adobe Lightroom 2.3 is now available as an official release!
The release candidate has had really positive feedback, so it’s a pretty safe bet. There have been a few more bug fixes since the release candidate, so it’s worth heading over to Adobe’s website for the updated downloads: Windows – Mac
New cameras: Nikon D3X, Olympus E-30, and now also preliminary support for the Epson R-D1x raw format.
The biggest and best bug fixes – well, the 2.2 memory leak has to be the best fix in this release. That solves many of the performance problems seen in earlier releases.
And here’s a bug you’ll be pleased to see if the back of, if you’ve ever been affected…. the Ctrl-Z bug! In some circumstances, pressing Ctrl-Z to undo the last action could undo a whole series of actions, in some cases undoing a lot of work. Nasty! But the good news is, the team have found it and fixed it!
It also solves the ‘disc burning failed’ bug for some Windows customers, an sFTP bug for Windows customers, and a odd slideshow bug, where it randomly reverted to the first image while playing.
As in the release candidate, it also fixes the Canon 5D MkII magenta shift on sRAW files which was introduced with the Canon 1.0.7 firmware and these new languages are now officially supported: Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Dutch, Italian, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish & Swedish.
It’s a great update – Enjoy!
