Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.3 and 6.3 arrives with restored import interface and bug fixes
Adobe has released Lightroom CC 2015.3 and Lightroom 6.3, bringing back the Import tool that had been, to many users' dismay, removed from Lightroom 6.2. The new version also provides fixes for some of the bugs introduced in the last version of Lightroom, along with additional lens profile and Raw support.
In mid-October, Adobe issued an apology for the numerous bugs its Lightroom 6.2 release introduced. Users also expressed frustration with the software's redesigned import experience, and Adobe has elected to restore that former experience as a result. Both the subscription and standalone software versions have received support for several new camera models, including the Canon PowerShot G5 X and G9 X, as well as tethered camera support for a few Canon DSLRs and numerous bug fixes.
In addition, Adobe has greatly expanded lens profile support. Read more on Adobe's website.
