Lightroom 2

Adobe has finally released Lightroom 2 after an extended beta testing period. My guess was early August, not too bad really and the new version is greatly improved. A wealth of information on the new version is available here and a list of updates from the beta version is over here. After a few hours use I can say that this is a great improvement over LR 1.4 and well worth the upgrade price. It also supports Raw files shot with the new D700. There is also an update to the Camera Raw plug-in for Photoshop that offers many (not all) of the features in LR2 improving compatibility between the two aplications. We will have to wait for Photoshop Next (CS4) before full compatibility is offered.
