A lot of folks don’t know that Adobe often releases software early as part of its Adobe Labs program. Here you’ll find “prerelease” candidates which simply means software that every thinks is good enough to ship but they want to test a little longer.

A new version of Adobe Camera Raw was released — version 8.1. It is a beta version and will work until June 30, 2013.

Here’s what’s new

  • Using a retina display? HiDPI capable monitors are supported.
  • New Camera support
  • New lens profiles for automatic lens correction.
  • A new DNG Converter to reprocess raw files to a lossless format.
