Adobe to Customers: Uninstall Buggy Photoshop Update

Citing three "unacceptable" bugs, Adobe Systems has pulled the 1.4 update for its Photoshop Lightroom software off its Web site and is advising customers who already installed it to wipe it off their computers.Photoshop Lightroom is used to manage large volumes of digital photos. The bugs involve a time stamp error, a Digital Negative (DNG) conversion problem and an error with converting JPEGs from Olympus cameras into other formats.

"Compared to other Adobe applications, we've taken a much more aggressive approach to releasing frequent new versions with new features, but it's clear we need to take a hard look at our release process to make sure that this aggressive approach doesn't sacrifice quality," blogged apologetic Lightroom product manager Tom Hogarty.Channel Register
