With a mid November release promised, Tom Hogarty is true to his word, with Lightroom 1.3 now available.
Lightroom 1.3 is mostly a bug fix release, along with providing Leopard compatibility. It also introduces the new Lightroom Export SDK. The SDK allows Third Party access directly from with Lightroom. Sample programs include FTP and Flickr Export. Those interested in trying out the SDK should go to Adobe Labs and register to download it.
Another change is that Web Galleries are changing from XSLT to an easier CSS/Luapages Gallery. It’s a little bit of a learning curve, but easier to use, especially with sample galleries and basic documenatation. Matthew Campagna from The Turning Gate will be publishing updated galleries. I have an early version of a Lua based vertical scroll gallery, which I will post soon. Another web thing is if you rename your folder with the extension .lrwebengine, it becomes a package file on Mac. If you double click on it, the OS with install it in the correct location.
Finally Lightroom now supports a range of new cameras, including the Nikons that are due today. Tom has a full list over at Lightroom Journal.
