I don't like the fact that you would need to visit this link regularly now to see if a particular software has been updated. Unless you discovered it yourself.
In a regular thread you would automatically see it on the first page. Also are are you allowed to discuss in this thread new and improve features???

Re: Adobe updates PhotoShop to ver. v9.0.2.

Adobe has updated Photoshop CS2 for Windows and Mac to v9.0.2. The updaters aren't yet available from the download pages of Adobe's web site - only through the update mechanism of the application itself.

Article @ MacFixIt website *apparently* says the updaters have been pulled from the Adobe site but the Windows updates are there for PS and InDesign. I can't read the article without registering, so Mac users are on their own.

More information -- V3.6 Contains fix for V1.00 A100 Raw

V1.00 in the Sony A100 camera would occasionally create a somewhat corrupt raw file. It would open up in the Sony Software, but not ACR V3.4 or V3.5, nor would it open up in Lightroom B3.

The fix for this is two-fold:

First, ACR V3.6 now reads these files now.
Second, so does Lightroom B4.

Thirdly, ever since the V1.02 Sony A100 firmware, I was not able to create a Raw file that ACR V3.4 or V3.5 could not read!!!

Lightroom 4.1 beta

Known bug fixes.

Photoshop Lightroom beta 4.1 was posted on 10/19/2006 in order to resolve some issues with the original beta 4 build. The following bugs were fixed:

* There was an issue where a user could not edit a metadata field after editing it for another picture which has been fixed.
* The preview cache was using wrong relative path.
* There were a couple fixes in the database update feature, fixing a few situations where the database would not update properly. Also, upgraded libraries would not always allow images to be moved between shoots.
* There was an problem selecting an existing folder for web galleries. The web gallery would move all images previously in the folder to the trash silently. This has been fixed. All contents of directory where a web gallery is saved are sent to the trash with no warning. Also in web, large exported galleries will now have all the images expected.
* The app had a couple unexpected failures canceling dialogs. Selecting cancel on the Enter Password dialog now reliably works, as does selecting cancel in Page Setup.
* The shoot selection should no longer change unexpectedly.
* The "Additional External Editor" preference and the "Edit in Photoshop" preference are now separate.
* If you had mixed managed photos and by reference files, the paths of by reference files would be changed when changing the location of the managed folder.
* Images exported with Constrain Pixels would produce the wrong result for portrait-oriented images .
* There are some changes in the relationship between Luminance and Saturation.

Re: The Software update thread

I saw a link to a Japanese site indicating that an update to Sony Picture Motion Browser has happened for Japanese A100 camera's.

Last time this happened (V1.02 firmware) it took 3-4 days before Sony US knew it was happening....

Has anyone heard anything yet?????
