I wonder if Adobe's new product release MO is going to look a lot like this update to LR. It seems most people are bored with the update. Personally, I'm excited about some of the features as they are really useful to me (and there is a speed improvement), but a lot of the photo community seems just totally underwhelmed. Perhaps Adobe is moving more toward focusing on the product, rather than on press as they re-tune their products to be updated more frequently. New product hype is great free publicity, so that would be a strange move if you ask me, but it does seem a little like that is where they are heading.
