LR3beta2 is out! Here are some noteworthy points:
The biggest thing for my own workflow is the speed and overall responsiveness of this release, which is better than any 1.x or 2.x release. When I upgraded to the 21mp Canon 5Dmark2 I’ve been frustrated with the responsiveness of Lightroom ever since – until now. It’s pretty hard to go back to 2.6 for production work.

Adobe is releasing the second public beta of Adobe Lightroom 3 today. LR3beta1 users won’t be disappointed as there are a significant number of noteworthy features in the new beta that were not in the first.
