Adobe today released a release candidate version of Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom 2.6. The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically.
The updates add raw file support for 19 new popular camera models, including the Canon EOS 7D.
Newly supported camera models include:
Canon EOS 7D
Canon PowerShot G11
Canon PowerShot S90
Leaf Aptus II 5
Mamiya DM22, DM28, DM33, DM56, M18, M22, M31
Lightroom 2.6 also provides a a fix for an issue affecting PowerPC customers using the final Lightroom 2.5 update on the Mac. The issue, introduced in the demosaic change to address sensors with unequal green response, has the potential to create artifacts in highlight areas when processing raw files from Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and various medium format digital camera backs.
They also released a new version of Camera RAW that will also support the list of cameras above.
