As is traditional with Adobe Lightroom, a Beta version of the about to be released Version 4 has been released.
The big news is a new books module and a map module, to join the existing Library, Develop, Web and Print.
Major updates to the Develop module have been made as well as the Print Module. The printing in Lightroom has always been better then just about any other product and now its few deficiencies has been addressed.
I have not had enough time to really test it yet or to get to grips with the new features and options but the updated RAW processing engine does seem to produce good results.
Here is a quick test shot of Dani that I took during a recent lighting test, taken with my Nikon D200, and processed with the latest Beta. No work in Photoshop just the options available in the Develop module in Lightroom V4, a little spotting, some softening and a little extra sharpening on the eyes, then a vignette. For a quick one minute edit it looks pretty good.
