Adobe apologize for issues
Adobe on Thursday released updates to correct for issues found in Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 and apologized for the issues caused by the update. The Lightroom 1.4.1 and Camera Raw 4.4.1 updates provide all of the changes included in the original Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.1 releases but also include corrections for EXIF metadata, DNG conversion, and JPEG artifact issues that were introduced with the latest updates.
After applying the previous updates, users complained that third-party tools were showing an incorrect EXIF time date field for each image, although the time/date was correctly displayed in Lightroom itself. Both updates also correct an issue where Olympus JPEG files could render incorrectly, displaying an artifact in the exported file. In addition, the Lightroom 1.4 update in the Windows version that would cause the DNG file to become unreadable by Lightroom's Develop Module or Camera Raw 4.4 in Photoshop.
The company issued a statement saying that the "Lightroom and Camera Raw teams apologize for any inconveniences caused by the issues presented in the initial updates."
