I’ve just seen on Scott Kelby’s blog (at http://www.scottkelby.com/blog/2007/archives/211) that Lightroom is set to release a minor upgrade any day now. As I understand the updgrade is supposed to be free (phew!) and includes improved sharpening and noise reduction, improved file mobility & improved preset organisation (through folders).
All of this sounds superb, but I would love a performance improvement more than any of the other stuff. Time will tell I guess.
Update: Lightroom 1.1 is now out. Read my initial thoughts here.
