All looks very exciting.

I may wait for the bug count to go down a bit before testing (only due to time available).

Does anybody know if this version allows the re-export of untouched jpgs?

And yet they still haven't fixed the JPG exporting.

EDIT: Quick example.
Lightroom:

Lightroom 2:

Photoshop:

(excuse the slightly different crop)

Look at the artefacts that Lightroom adds around all the text. An extreme example, but it's very annoying.

I just installed LR 2 Beta and had no real problems.
LR 1.3 is still running as LR 1.4 Beta loads as a separate program.
The only problem I found with LR 1.4 Beta will not open existing catalogs.
However with that said I did find that when importing images from the current location where I had LR 1.3 photos that all information from 1.3 was active in LR 2 Beta.
Meaning all changes made to images with LR 1.3 where still there after importing to LR 2 Beta.

I forgot to add - as excited as I am about local correction capability [and I think that is uber cool  ] - WTF happened to adding soft proofing to Lightroom?

You can export from the Print module to JPEG if that's what you mean.

I'd especially be interested in how users find the new output sharpening in the print module compared to output from 1.3.

Oh well, Qimage will continue to be my print tool of choice.

Yes, the new output sharpening is based on Photokit Sharpener and is the result of a collaboration between Jeff Schewe and the Lightroom enginners.

No, there is no softproofing yet!  

I am recommending a million man march on Adobe's corporate headquarters to demand it.

Having just upgraded to the new Aperture 2 I thought I would use it till LR2 and then switch back. After using it for a couple of weeks I doubt that I will switch back. Sharpening still needs some work as does softproofing but with the new plug in features and the results I am getting Adobe will have to make it very very good before I will buy the update.

Just installed it. It's much, much faster than the 1.X branch. A significant improve on speed on all modules.

The retouch tools are very cool but you can't, for instance, dodge and burn individual channels, which is a must for me. If I had that I'd never use Photoshop again! I like the small 1:1 preview window too.

The good side of not using Photoshop anymore is that you can do all the workflow over RAW images. You don't need gigantic 16-bit TIFFs anymore.

Luis
