Adobe Lightroom 2.7 and Camera RAW 5.7 Release Candidates Available

Adobe has made release candidates of Lightroom 2.7 and Camera Raw 5.7 available for download in Adobe Labs.  These versions add RAW file support for the following cameras:

  • Canon EOS 550D (Digital Rebel T2i/ EOS Kiss X4 Digital)
  • Kodak Z981
  • Leaf Aptus-II 8
  • Leaf Aptus-II 10R
  • Mamiya DM40
  • Olympus E-PL1
  • Panasonic G2
  • Panasonic G10
  • Sony A450

Additional release notes are indicated on the respective download pages for each product.

Remember, these are release candidates, which means they’ve been pretty well tested and Adobe thinks they are ready for full release; however, it’s recommended that you keep production work to prior versions until the official releases drop.  Expect those to come soon though.  Release candidates mean that the final versions are just around the corner.
