Adobe has published the Lightroom 5.3, Camera RAW 8.3, and DNG Converter 5.3 Release Candidate versions, bringing bug fixes and support for new cameras.
Following the security breach that has occurred on Adobe’s servers, the company is now aiming to divert the attention to other things. At first it was believed that about three million accounts have been compromised, then 38 million, but the amount has eventually reached 152 million, due to the actions of unknown hackers.
Nevertheless, Adobe will not abandon its business and will keep delivering products for the users, despite this negative spot on its reputation. The company has been working on providing an update for three of its programs and it has now published their Release Candidate versions.
As a result, the Lightroom 5.3, Camera RAW 8.3, and DNG Converter 8.3 RC updates are available for download with bug fixes and support for additional cameras as well as lens profiles. The list includes products from Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, and Sony among others.
