Welcome to the Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 8.5 plug-in release candidate on Adobe Labs. A “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 Camera Raw 8.5 update includes new features and support for many new cameras.
The Camera Raw plug-in provides easy access within Adobe Photoshop to the raw image formats produced by many leading professional and midrange digital cameras. For more information on the Camera Raw plug-in, please visit the Camera Raw pages on Adobe.com.
The Camera Raw team would like the community to help verify the quality of the plug-in through normal usage as this will ensure that the plug-in is tested on a diversity of hardware and software configurations not available internally at Adobe. If you do experience an issue with this release candidate please report it within the Camera Raw discussion forum.

“Everything new is new again”, or so says Adobe. If you’re a Creative Cloud person, you may want to mark June 18, 2014 on your calendar, as that’s the day Adobe will announce and show their latest and greatest suite of applications.
We’ll see new desktop and mobile apps, as well as some hardware. Adobe plans to stream the keynote and give us a peak at the hundreds of new features.

From the Richard Curtis Blog at Adobe:
There is a new free iPad app in the Apple App Store based on the Adobe Digital Publishing platform. This great app has been created by Canon and goes in the whole Canon camera eco-system. It’s got a wealth of content and interactivity, including which lenses to use for what style of photography (Macro, Wedding, Portrait, Food and many more), tips and techniques when using the Canon EOS system, but also interviews with leading Canon Ambassadors and Explorers. The app is available here in the Apple App store, and is available in EMEA only.

From Planet5D: Alex over at Magic Lantern announced today that the Magic Lantern team has a version of their software that should work on Canon EOS 5D Mark III firmware version 1.2.3 (which is the latest version)
“Not alpha, not beta, nor zeta, just a bleeding edge that happens to work for me. It might work for you or it might not. (note that my standards are fairly high, so what I call bleeding edge, others may call semi-stable or whatever)”
There are significant updates in this version too, like the elimination of the need to mod the boot flag – but Alex also warns there are still issues with portions of Magic Lantern including the HDMI output in this version.
