it has some JPG export bugs.
makes it useless for me right now.

i shoot raw but for proofs and web i need JPG.

look at the adobe lightroom forum for more infos.

i stick to LR 4 until they fixed the usual bugs they introduce with a full release.
v5.2 will maybe worth an upgrade...  ;D

How about a link.  There are thousands of posts on the Adobe forum, but none I could find saying the jpeg issue was there for the released version.  Lots of them for the beta.

Yes please. Can you point us to bugs in the final release version? According to the Known Issues (of which there are a few non-trivial ones) in the Release Notes, there's nothing about JPG export bugs

All I can say is: DOES IT RUN FASTER THAN LR 4? CAN I ACTUALLY GET ANYTHING DONE WITH THIS ONE?!?!?!?!
The switch between Library to Develop modules seems to be much faster. It still isn't instant, but there isn't that "oh come ON" frustration when switching. I'd say it's between 1/2 to 1 second MAX. FWIW, my files are from a 6D.

Exporting a full size JPEG took about 1 second on my i7 3770k with 16GB RAM.

LR4 runs lightning fast for me, If your computer has issues or is not up to running it, newer versions won't help.  LR 5 Beta was about the same, there was no discernible differences to me.
 
 
If you want to see slow, try DXO, it takes up to 100 times longer to render a file.

well it´s on top of the forum as LR 5 was just released today.  ::)

and if someone is not able to find the ADOBE LR forum.. what does he do on a computer?   :D

btw: the link was posted above your post.

based on my LR 4 experience, I think I'm going to wait until they ship 5.1

I don't have any problems with this one, nor 4.4/4.3. Sounds like you need to upgrade your box. Everything is instantaneous, not a single second of lag. Even the spot heal tool works instantaneously. Running smooth as butter on a dual quad-core Xeon 3.4, 32GB RAM, U320 15K SCSI RAID6, 512GB SATA6 cache drive, Quadro 2000. The JPG exports are almost realtime.

Couple of new tools, no noticeable speed improvement.

Underwhelmed...
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

They've also sneaked ACR8.1 on us which you would expect to have big changes seeing as it is a big version change.


Well, it doesn't… Apart from the icons on the tabs are different now.




Couldn't they put the new LR tools into that too as it's part of PS and costs so much?

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.

Not being one to believe everything I read, I took a image obviously in need of sharpening and created a output with no output sharpening and one with high output sharpening. 
It works fine for me.
 
 
UpDate:
Thinking that one of the three possible settings might not be working, I tested export for screen, export for matte paper, and export for glossy paper.  The sharpening worked for all, but it is very subtle in the export for screen mode such that it is not as obvious as the export for glossy paper that I showed below.
It does work, however, for all three.
 
Then, I did the exact same thing using LR 4.5 and the results were identical.

If its faster than LR4, thats all I need.

I found it to be noticeably faster (particularly module changes, but also some other stuff), however my overall workflow was hindered by numerous restarts of the software. Will see if it's fixed.

I've been using the LR5 beta since it came out in April and have had no issues other than the bug where the adjustment brush doesn't work occasionally. Other than that, everything seems to work great.

It's noticeably faster than LR4, which I haven't used since the LR5 beta came out.

I'm downloading my upgrade now.

+1  :)

Done. I found it to be faster. Very happy with this version.

Just downloaded the upgrade.  Best feature so far?  Hit the F key and get true full screen.  It's now that easy.

No output sharpening applied on export is now listed as a bug in the release notes.

"Images exported at less than 1/3 of their original size may not retain Output Sharpening and Noise Reduction settings"

So far it does seem more responsive and I'm really liking the new radial filter and the option to see image sensor dust when using spot removal.
