Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate Now Available from Adobe Labs

The Lightroom team has announced the availability of the release candidate for Lightroom 5.3.  Release candidates are made available before official releases in order to get broader community testing and feedback. This release contain bug fixes, new camera support, new lens profiles and a few new Develop shortcuts.  My general recommendation regarding release candidates is for most people to wait for the official release, unless you have one of the new cameras or need a new lens profile, or unless the bugs that have been fixed are affecting you.
