Lightroom gains Facebook publishing
Adobe has posted two new release candidates, beginning with Lightroom 3.2. The update adds just one new feature, that being the ability to publish photos directly to Facebook. The software also gains extra or improved camera support however, with consumer models including the Casio EXILIM EX-FH100; the Panasonic DMC-FZ100, DMC-FZ40/FZ45 and DMC-LX5; the Samsung NX10 and TL500/EX1; and lastly Sony's A290, A390, NEX-3 and NEX-5.
New professional camera support incorporates just two medium-format models: the Leica S2, and the Pentax 645D. Profiles have meanwhile been added or updated for dozens of lenses, including models from Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Phase One, Samsung and Sony. A host of bugfixes deals with problems in areas like the Library, importing and the SDK. The download is 74.7MB.
Camera Raw 6.2 is more limited in function, simply expanding the RAW and lens profile support in Photoshop CS5. All of the cameras and lenses from the Lightroom 3.2 release carry over. In addition, Adobe has posted a matching DNG Converter 6.2 release.
