Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.4 and Adobe Camera Raw 5.4 are both available immediately on the Windows and Mac OS X platforms, and both add support for no less than 31 cameras and camera backs from Canon, Epson, Hasselblad, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Sigma and Sony. With the release of Camera Raw 5.4, Adobe has included five new cameras that weren't featured in the release candidate version issued a month ago - one each from Canon and Pentax, and three from Sony. The new version of Lightroom also squashes a number of bugs found in the previous version of that application.
Quoting Adobe's release notes for Lightroom 2.4, specific issues which have been corrected in the latest version include:
Web galleries with a Collection Title of six characters would not export or upload
The crop aspect ratio could revert to the last selected ratio even when reset to original
The crop aspect ratio in Quick Develop could be lost after a crop adjustment
The crop aspect ratio lock could be lost after an orientation switch
Images could preview incorrectly when imported using the MTP/PTP USB protocol
Sony .ARW files may not have been recognized by Lightroom’s import dialog
The Japanese language configuration of Lightroom on Mac OS X 10.5 could fail to switch to the print module if the HP B9180 was set as the default printer
Metadata options that are intended for use were dimmed incorrectly when exporting DNG files
The Japanese language configuration of Lightroom on Mac OS X was missing a shortcut for “Zoom Out”
Several translation and shortcut corrections were made for the eight additional languages introduced with Lightroom 2.3
