Senior Lightroom Engineer Eric Scouten, has announced an update to the Lightroom SDK (Software Development Kit) on the SDK Forum:
Hello all … we’ve posted a minor update to the SDK documentation at the Lightroom Developer Center.
The PDF documentation is updated to reflect a few errors that have been brought to our attention in the last few months.
Also, one function on export service providers was inadvertently omitted from earlier documentation. This function (updateExportSettings, p. 36-37 of new PDF) allows you to override specific settings before Lightroom begins rendering the exported files.

Adobe have made a ‘release candidate’ of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.1 available for Mac or PC from their Adobe Labs website.
The link is http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Lightroom_2.1
From the Adobe Labs site:
“The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers. The Lightroom team would like the community to help verify the quality of this update through normal usage as this will ensure that the application is tested on a diversity of hardware and software configurations not available internally at Adobe.”

When Adobe released the public beta of Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 back in early April 2008 it was with the express intention of providing the user community with an opportunity to try out many of the new features. Obviously, there was an expectation that the users would provide feedback on the new features and other aspects of the Lightroom workflow. So, here we are some 4 months later and the final release version is available, the question on everyone lips is – has the public beta delivered on it’s objectivesSo what’s new and improved?
