    I've never used a "release candidate" before, but I have a G5 that will want to churn out RAW images sooner rather than later. May have to take a chance on the RC...

    Once again, Adobe has come through pretty darn quickly in getting out a new version!

    I have used RC releases a few times with no issues. Give it a shot!

    They picked a fine time to release it, just as I'm working in Norway for the next week or so and only have the work laptop without LR grrrrr!!! Have to wait till I get home now

    I heard it would be here soon; and soon it turned out to be! :dance3:

    Release Candidates have always worked well for me in the past, so I have no qualms about using this one.

    They are free pre-release (beta) versions that they put out to use and if users have issues or suggestions then they can report back to Adobe who make changes if required, after a few months Adobe will release the final retail version.

    Technically they're not beta versions but "post beta" versions. They've already passed beta testing. A RC version is where Adobe thinks all the beta bugs have been adressed. Usually release candidates are sent to a limited number of advanced testers to see if it's suitable to be the final release version. However over the last few years Adobe has found that the general public are willing to take any risks (there are very few with a RC) and it's turned into great marketing for Adobe as they now do the same thing with Photoshop as well.
