I think there was a problems with the sharpening tool in the latest version of LR and it not being able to import LR3 catalogues. What made me throw it out the window was it crashed every time I loaded a video preview and then wanted me to download Quicktime, which BTW has more backdoors and flaws in it that just about any other software I can think of including Java. I find it all bloody annoying though that these companies, Adobe, Microsoft and even Corel to an extent, although they have only patched PSP once since release as far as I know can't get their expensive software right before final release and then put the onus on the user to keep constantly updating it. Any other product you could demand your money back saying it's not fit for purpose, but the software companies have you over a bloody barrel....grrrrrr Tongue

Here's a list of just some of the issue found with LR so far and which Adobe know about, I don't think as yet they have resolved any of the problems, which is why I ditched the trial version, it just became unusable on my machine. Sad

It would be a hell of a lot more expensive (and slowly released) if they did that. And even if you test stuff to within an inch of its life bugs have a habit of apearing as soon as you give software to users.

Thanks for that - only the sharpening one looks serious to me.
Mind you I decided to wait till 5.1 came out before upgrading - been working in software too long to go for a .0 release Wink

You're welcome Chris.....

You're a bit like me, I always give it 6 months before rushing out to buy the latest camera if I'm desiring it, just so any problems with the early release models have been ironed out and the firmware updated.

Adobe are currently planning releasing a fix for the Lightroom 5 issues next week.
