Adobe has announced the Lightroom 3.6 Release Candidate, adding support for new cameras and lenses, and fixing a number of issues. The new cameras supported by LR 3.6 RC are the Canon PowerShot S100, Nikon 1 J1, Nikon 1 V1, Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and Samsung NX5.
Newer lenses from Canon, Nikon, Phase One, Sigma and Sony are now supported in Version 3.6. Release Candidate means the update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before being released to customers.
The following issues have been fixed in the Lightroom 3.6 release candidate:
- 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.
