When will Lightroom 3 be out?

Dad, Dad, are we there yet?

Clues are emerging on the likely release date for Lightroom 3. This thread is an interesting read, partially because the last few posts actually make sense and partially because Jeff Schewe has a complete melt-down half way down. He must have been having a bad day!

Bottom line is that Kelby Training is planning a bunch of LR seminars in July, pointing to a June launch. Loonsailor does the math: Beta 2 launched in March plus 1-2 months to get comments and feedback plus 1-2 months to fix bugs plus another month to package and ship. There might be some overlap - bugs will be fixed as they are reported and the team will probably be doing a build each day as the narrow in on the gold code. But, we are looking at June at the earliest.

That's a bit of a bummer. As Mike Johnston pointed out a few days ago in The Online Photographer, things are getting pretty dull in the camera department. The glory days of the megapixel race are behind us. Even the ISO race proved to be short-lived and we seem to have bumped up against the laws of mother nature. All that's left is software and that takes lots of time.

Dad, Dad, are we there yet?
