Camera Raw 5.3 and Lightroom 2.3 Available on Adobe Labs

The Camera Raw 5.3 and Lightroom 2.3 Release Candidates are now available on Adobe Labs.  The release includes new camera support for the following models:


  • Nikon D3X
  • Olympus E-30


The Lightroom update addresses some reported problems:


  • In the Windows 64-bit version of Lightroom an sFTP upload process could cause Lightroom to crash
  • Slideshows could return to the first image randomly during playback
  • A memory leak could cause Lightroom to crash while attempting to process files with local adjustments
  • Canon EOS 5D Mk II sRAW files could process with artifacts in Lightroom 2.2
  • Lightroom 2.2 could cause disc burning to fail for Windows customers



Additional Languages

Lightroom 2.3 now provides language support for Chinese (Simplified),
Chinese (Traditional), Dutch,
Portuguese (Brazilian),
and Swedish.  Lightroom PM Tom Hogarty has posted some additional notes regarding language support on the Lightroom Journal.

    Any “danger” in installing these release candidates before the final version is out? Thanks.
    [We’re not aware of anything that would be dangerous about them. Having said that, they haven’t yet had wide third-party testing exposure. So, everything *should* be fine, but we’re putting them into this holding pattern to help shake out any possible weirdness. –J.]

    I installed Camera Raw 5.3 and the only difference I am able to find is that it has a nag screen that it is beta.
    The ver 5.2 brought us some useful tools. Can you give us an idea what this upgrade offers outside of additional camera support?

    Thank goodness – I really hope the memory leak and 5d Mk2 issues are truly resolved. Have had me pulling my hair out for the last few weeks.
