Adobe announced Lightroom 4.3 and Camera Raw 7.3 release candidates, that bring some interesting changes. Lightroom is the digital photography workflow solution, that can help you quickly import, manage, enhance and showcase all your pictures within one application. The Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in provides fast and easy access to raw image formats produced by many leading digital cameras and the Lightroom 4.3 Release Candidate includes support for HiDPI displays within the Develop Module, such as Apple's redesigned 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros. If you want to get the OS X version, you will need to download 410-megabyte of data.
Both updates add RAW file support for the following cameras:
- Canon PowerShot S110
- Canon PowerShot G15
- Canon PowerShot SX50 HS
- Casio Exilim EX-ZR1000
- Casio Exilim EX-FC300S
- Nikon D600*
- Olympus PEN E-PL5
- Olympus PEN E-PM2
- Olympus STYLUS XZ-2 iHS
- Panasonic DMC-GH3
- Pentax K-5 II
- Pentax K-5 IIs
- Pentax Q10
The new version also fixes some bugs and other issues - here's the full list:
- Unable to upload a large panorama to Adobe Revel via the Revel Publish Plugin
- Unable to add a second photo to a page layout in a Book. This only occurred when the “Show Unused Photos” filter is selected in the filmstrip.
- A photo can be flagged as both a “Pick” and “Reject” at the same time when using the Toolbar to apply flags
- Using multiple fonts within the same text cell inside a Book can sometimes cause Lightroom to crash
- Exposure becomes the active adjustment slider in the Basic panel (within Develop) when moving from image to image
- Customers using Photoshop Elements 11 were unable to upgrade their catalogs in Lightroom 4
- Custom Cell padding options in the Book Module reset in between Lightroom sessions
- 1080p video files shot on iPhone 4S flicker on replay
- Leaving the Book Module after using multiple text colors in the same text cell can sometimes cause the book to be lost.

Full version of Lightroom 4 is available for purchase for $149 for new customers, or $79 for those upgrading from a previous version.
