Camera Raw 8.1 Release Candidate for Photoshop CS6 Now Available

Photoshop-CS6

Adobe just announced a release candidate for Camera Raw 8.1, which is now available in Adobe Labs. This is the first departure from Camera Raw 7.x for CS6 users. With the recent Adobe Photoshop CC changes taking place, CS6 customers will continue to get new updates for raw file support; however, the killer new features that are part of Camera Raw in Photoshop CC will not make it over to CS6 customers.

Camera Raw 8.1 includes support for HiDPI capable displays (e.g., MacBook Pro Retina) and offers support for the following cameras:

Remember, this is a release candidate, which means it has been pretty well tested and Adobe thinks it is ready for full release; however, it’s recommended that you keep production work to prior versions until the official release drops.  Expect that to come soon though.  Release candidates mean that the final versions are just around the corner.
