Lightroom Release Candidate 2.1

Adobe Labs has released a “Release Candidate” for Adobe Lightroom 2.1.  While this isn’t an official update, it’s no longer a beta release either.  In other words, it may not be perfect, but it should be relatively safe for the masses.

No new features are introduced, but there is a list of bug fixes and new camera support including the Nikon D700 and Nikon D90.  Great news for all those early D700 users as this would cause a major snag in a Lightroom work flow.

To get this update, go to the Adobe Labs page for Lightroom 2.1 and download it.  It won’t occur automatically due to its Release Candidate status.  Once it’s finalized, I’d assume that it will pop up as an update from within Lightroom.

As soon as I have a chance, I’ll be checking this out.
