Lightroom 2 Beta julkaistu

Tätä se Jeff Schewen vihjailu siis tarkoitti. Adobe Lightroomin 2:n beta versio on julkaistu. Hieman siis erehdyin kun otsikoin tuon aikaisemmin postaukseni korjatuksi versioksi. Lightroom 1.3.1 on edelleen "tuotantoversio" jota kannattaa käyttää omien kuvien arkistointiin.

Kaikki Lightroom 1.0:n ostaneet saavat käyttää tuota beta versiota elokuun loppuun, muille käyttäjille siitä on 30 päivän trial versio.

Lisäksi Lightroomin 1.4.1 versio on tällä hetkellä testauksessa ja se julkaistaan huhtikuun ensimmäisellä puolikkaalla.

Lightroom Journal kertoo asiasta näin:

Primary Known Issues
  • Lightroom 2.0 beta will not upgrade Lightroom 1.x libraries. The beta is intended to be used for testing and feedback purposes. Lightroom 1.x and 2.0 beta libraries will be migrated to the finished version of Lightroom 2.0.
  • While data loss is not expected, this is a very early ‘beta’ quality build and you should always work on duplicates of files that are securely backed up.
  • Lightroom 2 beta will not overwrite or interfere with a machine that currently has Lightroom 1.3.1 installed.
  • Develop settings applied in Lightroom 2.0 beta are not guaranteed to transfer correctly to the final version of 2.0. This is particularly true for localized corrections.
  • The new Photoshop integration functionality is only available with Photoshop CS3 (10.0.1) and should only be used for testing purposes. Metadata associated with the original file may not carry over to the subsequent file saved from Photoshop
  • Additional known issues are listed in the release notes.

Additional Resources

What about Lightroom 1.4?
Trust me, we haven't forgotten about the photographers who are awaiting a replacement to the Lightroom 1.4 update that we released and subsequently pulled from Adobe.com.

Lightroom 1.4.1 and Camera Raw 4.4.1 are currently undergoing additional testing before we release them in the first half of April. Thank you for your patience.
