Adobe has announced the beta for the latest version of Lightroom. As before it's an open beta and anyone can try it out. Headlining the new features right now are enhancements to speed, noise reduction and image quality - all of which are significant and important but I've a hunch there will be more new toys for us too. Check it out at and remember - this is an unfinished BETA version of the product that doesn't yet have all the intended features of the final version. Download it, try it out, but DON'T rely on it and don't start using it for your main photography workflow. It will run along side Lightroom 2 without interfering.
