Adobe has released a bug-fix release to Photoshop Lightroom, its professional photo-management application. Photoshop Lightroom 3.4.1 corrects unspecified issues “introduced in previous versions of Lightroom 3” and also addresses a rare bug introduced in the 3.4 update that could corrupt JPEG images that contain large blocks of private camera data. This update also adds raw support for the Canon Rebel T3i, Nikon D5100, and Fuji FinePix X100. ($299 new, free update for owners of Lightroom 3, $99 upgrade from earlier versions, 88.5 MB)
