To my surprise I opened Lightroom last night only to be notified that version 1.2 was now available. Version 1.1 was only released a little while ago. I had a quick look through the release notes. There does not appear to be any feature enhancement just a number of bug fixes.
There is however support for some additional camera RAW files, including the Olympus E-510. Which suits me as this is now what I am using most of the time. Although, version 1.1 which officially supported the Olympus E-410 also worked with the E-510 (but very slooowly).
I upgraded my version of lightroom last night from 1.0 to the new version 1.1. The most notable feature that is benefit to me is the ability to work with Olympus E-410/E-510 ORF files (there are also some other new cameras supported). I should be getting my E-510 in the next few days and didn't really want to do a DNG conversion and then an import into lightroom.
Another little annoyance that has been corrected is that during import folders were incorrectly tagged with the date based on GMT rather than the local time on the computer. With Lightroom version 1.1 this problem seems to be gone.
Adobe have also made some other refinements to the user interface and now have some additional sharpening controls, including:
Well, it seems that the Pixmantec Rawshooter Migration Tool which was due for release on the 5th March 2007 is not ready yet. Adobe are now due to make an announcement on the 9th March 2007 of a new release date.
The delay in release of the conversion tool has been attributed to ensuring that it meets Adobe's standards.
For those who don't know. Lightroom is an application that allows you to process and manage your image files.
As a Rawshooter Premium purchaser I am entitled to a free copy of the new Adobe Lightroom product due for release shortly (according to post on the Adobe forums it should be available by 23rd of February 2007). I have just downloaded the 30 day trial copy to get started.
