Bugs force Adobe to pull Lightroom update

Company pulls down version 1.4 of the photo management program and recommends those who have updated go back to the old version until the bugs are squashed.

Adobe has pulled from its Web site an update to Photoshop Lightroom after discovering the new version can cause at least three errors.

In a posting on its Web site, Adobe says that users should not move to version 1.4 and those who have are advised to go back to the older version.

"Those Lightroom users who have installed Lightroom 1.4 should uninstall the update and install Lightroom 1.3.1 until a further update can be provided," Adobe said. Among the errors are a time stamp bug as well as an error in the way files are converted to the DNG (Digital Negative) format. A third issue affects converting Olympus JPEG files to other formats.

Two of the three bugs affect both Windows and Mac versions of Lightroom, while one error occurs only in the Windows version. Both Windows and Mac copies of version 1.4 have been taken down from Adobe's site.
