Update alongside Camera Raw, DNG Converter 7.1
Adobeis offering an official upgrade to Lightroom after an extended beta release in conjunction with an update to Camera Raw. Lightroom has been updated to version 4.1, addressing several bugs introduced in prior versions of the software, as well as introducing the ability to process HDR TIFF files. Camera Raw is now on version 7.1 and adds support for 28 more cameras and 24 new lenses. Both upgrades are available now from Adobe.com or the update mechanism in Lightroom 4.
Other bug fixes in Lightroom 4.1 include enhanced compatibility with Postscript Type 1 fonts,a fix for issues with saved book layouts, DNG previews and metadata updates, increased performance, and improved viewing of subfolders and stacks with large numbers of photos. One issue that remains is double-byte fonts such as Chinese or Japanese characters are still not being exported to PDF.
Bugs addressed in Camera Raw 7.1 include Windows keyboard shortcut fixes, increased stability in metadata editing, and point curve adjustments. A defringe control has been added to the Lens Correction panel. The DNG Converter 7.1 application duplicates this functionality for versions of Photoshop prior to CS6.
