Lightroom 4.2 Is Out!

A while back, Adobe made a release candidate available for Lightroom 4.2. So we knew the full release was coming soon and now it’s here. Tom Hogarty (Lightroom’s product manager) has a full list of what’s in this release but here’s the highlights:
- Some bug fixes (mostly things that I haven’t personally experienced)
- Support for new cameras in tethered capture (yes, the D800 and D4)
- Updated profiles for some new lenses

You can either go to the Help menu to check for updates to get 4.2 or hit Adobe’s website.

  1. Is there any way to get it to actually update the existing install or is uninstalling the old version than installing the new version the only way to go?

  4. Matt,
    Can’t get Camera RAW 7.2 to load/update in Photoshop CS6 Extended. We download the NEW DNG 7/2 Converter but PS CS6 still says ACR is 7/1. Suggestions?

  6. Matt:

    Installed LR 4.2. Now when I g to CS5 from LR, it tells me I amy have may encounter problems in CS5 because it is looking for cameral raw 7.2. In cs5 I can’t update to 7.2. This is a similar problem with every update in LR4. Will these two programs ever be on the same page?
