Just a little extra info to give you a better idea of when Adobe might be releasing the newest versions:

Lightroom:

  • V.1 to V.2: 17 months
  • V.2 to V.3: 22-23 months
  • V.3 to V.4: 21 months
  • Average: ~20 months

Photoshop:

  • CS1 to CS2: 19 months
  • CS2 to CS3: 23 months
  • CS3 to CS4: 18 months
  • CS4 to CS5: 18 months
  • CS5 to CS6: 25 months
  • Average: ~21 months

Given that Lightroom 4 was released in March of 2012:

  • At the earliest, we might see Lightroom 5 release in August 2013.
  • At the latest, we might see Lightroom 5 release in February 2014.
  • Based on the average, we might see Lightroom 5 release in November 2013.
  • Note of interest: All Lightroom releases so far have occurred in the February/March or June/July timeframe.  There has never been a fall launch of Lightroom yet.

Given that Photoshop CS6 was released in May of 2012:

  • At the earliest, we might see Photoshop CS7 release in November 2013.
  • At the latest, we might see Photoshop CS7 release in June 2014.
  • Based on the average, we might see Photoshop CS7 release in February 2014.
  • Note of interest: All Photoshop CS releases so far have occurred in either April/May timeframe or October timeframe.

Each version of Lightroom has been released, on average, within 2-3 months of a Photoshop CS release.  Looking at my data, it goes back and forth of Lightroom releasing before or after Photoshop CS (V.1 after, V.2, before, V.3 after, V.4 before).

So putting that all together, expect that if one releases the other will come out within 2-3 months.  But neither would go much past 24 months since the prior version has been released.
