Bugs Corrected in the Lightroom 3.6 Release Candidate

The following bugs that were part of previous Lightroom 3 releases have been corrected. The team appreciates the very detailed feedback the community has provided on Lightroom 3 and we’re excited to correct a number of issues experienced by our customers. These issues have been FIXED

  • Lightroom 3.5 did not update the correct metadata fields in a file after adjusting the capture time of an image
  • Publish Collections created prior to Lightroom 3.4 designed to publish to a Hard Drive could fail to work properly in Lightroom 3.5
  • The Targeted Adjustment Tool provided the reverse value intended when used on OS X 10.7
  • The incorrect Aspect Ratio was displayed when Crop settings were Copy/Pasted or applied via Previous button (Mac Only)
  • In rare situations, Lightroom 3.4 and 3.5 would not be able to read certain JPEG files properly
  • Files with invalid date metadata could fail to import properly
  • Editing a crop that had previously been copied from another file would fail to retain the copied aspect ratio
  • Please provide feedback on your experience with the Lightroom 3.6 Release Candidate Bug Report Form.

Camera Raw 6.6 Release Notes

  • Selecting a destination folder could cause the Adobe Photo Downloader to become unresponsive
  • Prior custom tone curve adjustments may not appear in the tone curve panel until the panel is refreshed
  • Images with red eye corrections may have had color artifacts when converted to black and white
  • Please provide feedback on your experience with the Camera Raw 6.6 plug-in and the DNG Converter on the Camera Raw User to User forum.
