Will Lightroom work on Lion? Alternatives?

I'm about to receive a new MBP today with 'Lion'. (Frankly, I'm not sure I understand if there's a difference between Lion & Mountain Lion, but that's another matter.)

I'm currently using 10.6.8, and had bought Lightroom 3 to start with, but it's not installed yet.

Can anyone tell me about LR 3 or 4 usability on the new Macs? My goal had been to learn LR 3 before downloading 4 (long story) because I'm going on a 3 month trip to Europe and wanted to learn how to work with RAW files for the first time.

If I'm now stuck because Lion isn't compatible with Lightroom, what would your suggested alternative be for organizing and working on gazillions of new photos from this upcoming trip?

[The main appeal to me of LR was the newest feature of its ability to work with shadows and overexposed areas of shots. Would PS 5 offer essentially the same thing?]
