Adobe has just released the latest versions of Lightroom and Camera RAW. If you have not already, you should get a little prompt the next time that you load up Lightroom or Camera Raw that will allow you to download the latest version. If you are impatient or for whatever reason you have not received that notification via lighroom/acr then you can also download it via adobes website.

One particular thing of note, it appears that the Nikon D7100 is in face supported by this release. It was previously said that the 7100 would not be supported in this release, but it appears that Adobe got it together and managed to get D7100 support in after all.

    Update went without a hitch. Please to see quick added support for the D7100. Curious what performance increases, if any, we’ll see in this update as well.
