Are you sure ? http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2012/01/lr4betanowavailable.html

Sometimes you just need to look at what leaks there are and how credible they are. It's always the case that there are mistakes and people let loose information a day or two early before the announcements.

Says in that article that Mac 10.6 or later required. Hope thats wrong as I have no desire to upgrade my 10.5.8.

It also won't install on Windows XP. That had better change on release, XP has a huge user base and people won't upgrade their OS just because the latest LR version won't install.

As per my other post, don't hold your breath.    I'd expect PS 6 to do the same in fact, along with lots of other new versions of things.

Setting an OS minimum  that is < 10 years old is not unreasonable in modern IT environment.  (In my oppinion)

What they do with PS CS6 doesn't bother me much as I won't bother to upgrade anyway.

The point regarding XP is that it still has a huge user base, despite it's age. It was still being supplied as the installed OS on many systems just two years ago.
In my custom profiling business I've dealt with more XP users in the last year than any other OS variant.
I'm puzzled what feature arrived with Vista that is so necessary to LR4 that they'll abandon such a large market segment.

I would note that under the "high level summary of what is new" is 'SOFT PROOFING REINVENTED'  It will be nice to explore how this works and whether it is different from PS soft proofing.

There are significant differences and improvements soft proofing in LR compared to Photoshop. As shown here:

Andrew, any chance of getting a non-QT version of that video for those of us who don't like Apple products?

You don't need an Apple product to view a quick time video.  Or even commercial software for that matter!

Yes, but to do that I need to download the clip to my hard drive.  I can't stream it from Andrew's site.  I've got VLC set as my default media player for MOV files, have the latest version installed and have the Mozilla plugin installed.  Won't stream the clip.

Thank you! That was very useful. That feature alone will make me buy LR4 when it´s out of beta!

Very sure.  The *only* reliable source is the vendor.  You can play all the guessing games you want and you might get lucky and you might even use some appropriate deduction to make an informed guess, but it's still guessing :-)  Of course, it's fun to guess and good luck to all who want to give it a go!
