While Lightroom 4 came out and was extremely solid, there are always a few glitches that will be found when tens of thousands of people start pounding on it. This release candidate features a number of bug fixes but for new Canon 5D MKIII owners, their cameras are now supported.
Lightroom 4.1 is now available as Release Candidates on Adobe Labs. The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers. The final release of Lightroom 4.1 may have additional corrections or camera support.

The following bugs that were part the Lightroom 4 releases have been corrected. The team appreciates the very detailed feedback the community has provided on Lightroom 4 and we’re excited to correct a number of issues experienced by our customers. These issues have been FIXED:
