There are also a number of other small bug fixes for issues that affected 4.0.
Performance issues aren’t specifically mentioned in the release notes, however that doesn’t mean that Adobe have been resting on their laurels. Many users who were experiencing issues on 4.2 and earlier are reporting improvements.
Lightroom x.1 releases are the only dot releases that can include major new features, however Adobe managed to sneak a couple of new features into 4.3.
- Photoshop Elements 11 catalogs can now be upgraded to Lightroom catalogs.
- Develop module now has initial support for Apple MacBook Pro Retina displays.
