Adobe Lightroom 6 Coming?

Details over the next version of Adobe Lightroom 6 are gaining traction. Amazon Germany has a listing for an upcoming Photoshop Lightroom 6 book that is going to be released on August 31, 2014:

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 Details

With the recent Lightroom 5 price drop (currently $119 vs. the usual $149 USD price; it was as low as $80 USD) and the upcoming Photokina show in Cologne, Germany this September - it's likely that Adobe will release a new version of Lightroom sooner rather than later. The company has already scheduled and set up a website for an announcement regarding the Creative Cloud for June 18th...

It should look fabulous on the new iMac and Thunderbolt displays coming!

Update (6/18/14):

At Adobe's Creative Cloud event (mentioned above), some really nice updates to Premiere, Dreamweaver, (some) InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Muse (14 CC apps in all) and even hardware (Ink & Slide) were announced... Unfortunately, only the mobile versions (iPad and now iPhone!) of Lightroom have been updated (as has the site). Maybe as Photokina draws closer...

We did get a minor bump of Lightroom from 5.4 to 5.5, which includes the following fixes:

  • Support for syncing star ratings and custom sort order to Lightroom mobile and Lightroom web.
  • Fixes for bugs introduced in earlier versions of Lightroom 5.
  • Camera support for additional new lenses and cameras.

Downloads for Macintosh or for Windows available.
