Lightroom 2.2 Update Released

I just received this announcement about Lightroom 2.2 being released. One of the best features I noticed is that Adobe Camera Profiles are now provided in the application, eliminating the need to install them manually. Below are excerpts from the announcement:

Adobe has released an update to its Photoshop Lightroom software, available immediately as a free upgrade for existing Lightroom 2 users. Lightroom 2.2 adds raw support for seven new camera models including the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon PowerShot G10. The update also includes several refinements such as enhanced performance of the local adjustment tools.

In addition, Adobe’s Camera Profiles are now available natively within Lightroom 2.2 and are provided automatically as part of this release. As the visual starting point for the raw processing workflow, camera profiles provide flexibility that allows photographers to quickly achieve their desired rendering.

Lightroom 2.2 supports the following additional camera models: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon PowerShot G10, Panasonic DMC-G1, Panasonic DMC-FX150, Panasonic DMC-FZ28, Panasonic DMC-LX3 and Leica D-LUX 4.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.2 is available now as a free download for
existing Lightroom 2 customers here.

If you have the Beta Camera Profiles installed, you need to manually delete them. If you have do this with either Lightroom 2.2 or Camera Raw 5.2, it will happen in the other automatically.

It is good to have a new version of Lightroom. Adobe relay tries to keep up the pace.
