Adobe Adds Support for Leica M

Adobe has announced RC ("Release Candidate") versions of Lightroom 4.4 and Adobe Camera Raw 7.4. As usual, the latest version adds support for recent cameras which this time includes the new (and as yet unreleased) Leica M (Type 240). The Lightroom update also corrects a series of bugs present in the current version of the software. As usual, release candidates are considered well-tested but not final.
