 Lightroom CC2015.5 and Lightroom 6.5 Now Available

Adobe has just released the latest version of Lightroom. Version 2015.1 for CC users, or 6.5 for standalone users brings bug fixes and new camera support. Unfortunately there is still no mention of the improved Fuji X-Trans rendering promised by Adobe last June.

Here are the bug fixes and new camera models supported by the latest release:

Bugs Fixed in Lightroom CC 2015.5 / 6.5

Bug fixes related to Panorama Merge

  • Scared that pesky sensor dust spots will ruin your perfect pano? No problem, remove spots in 1 image and then merge to pano. Lightroom takes care of the rest.
  • Boundary Warp gets better as we fixed a bunch of bugs
  • Removed the ‘auto’ projection option. Turns out, it always picked the same projection mode.

Other Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a ton of sync errors. Faster sync to the Lightroom iOS and Android apps.
  • Scrolling through images in Loupe view with your mouse is back! (sorry that it went away in the first place).
  • Slideshows are back in high-resolution. Fixed a bug that caused them to appear much lower res than expected.
  • Books are made for browsing. We’ve reinstated scroll bars so that you can browse faster in the Book module
