A note about the Lightroom/Camera Raw update
Ugh. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the Lightroom team has uncovered some problems with the Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 releases posted on Thursday. The updates have been pulled down temporarily while the team addresses the problems. In the meantime Lightroom PM Tom Hogarty has posted details and guidance on how to roll back to previous versions. The most serious issue is that the time stamp generated by your camera & stored in EXIF metadata can get overwritten when you update other file metadata.
On behalf of everyone involved, I’m sorry about all this hassle. We’ll straighten things out ASAP.
[Update: Tom has posted an apology.]
