re 4.4.1 update released
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:18:07 AM »

Hi All

I saw ref to this on another forum http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5600

It is good that LR4 is still being supported and I know this is idle speculation on my part but could there be overlapping code changes that are being corrected in this 'dot' release that are seen differently in the bugs in LR5 i.e. as 5 was being developed the "law of unforeseen consequnces" kicked in the code error in 4 carried over to 5 created its own bugs???

However, what with LR5 dot release to fix the (growing?) list of bugs due soon is it due any day now???  ;)

As I say just a little idle speculation  :D

I find that very pity that at Adobe there is no concept of hotfix to fix the most critical issues first / or at least those for which the fix has been found, in order not to wait for the full list of issues sorted out, which seems to take rather long. What is worse, there is even no communication.

I know first releases are no good, but I got much confidence based on the beta. It was unexpected 1) to see full release having more issues (from usability viewpoint) 2) lack of quick response

You are, of course, aware of this hotfix for LR 5? http://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-5-crashes-editing-images.html

Costas,

 You will be able to read it is buggy till the day LR6 arrives. :)

 There will always be someone unable to use the program.

That appears to be a Windows-only update?

Very true, but several of these bugs would have an impact on my usage, especially the one with editing files imported prior to PV2012 and also sharpening/noise reduction on output of JPEGs. Shame because there are features in Vn 5 I would like to use, hopefully Vn 5.1 is not too far away.

Snip -
2) lack of quick response

Why should they respond at all? They've already got your money. Adobe started a downhill trend the day they let the bean counters run the show. Just sayin'...
