I need to use ACR 7.2 for its support of Sony RX-100 ARW RAW files. But the Release Candidate doesn't work with APE 11. Can Adobe post a newer RC which works with the latest released Photoshop Elements? If not, what is the schedule for an official release of ACR 7.2??
Usually, beta versions of ACR are not supplied for Elements.
ACR gets updated three to four times per year in an orderly fashion. Beyond that, Adobe has a long-standing policy of not commenting on unreleased software.
It usually takes about a month from the release of an RC version, give or take, depending on other factors.
Great news! This morning a patch was released which upgraded Photoshop Elements 11 to RAW 7.2. And now I can import and edit my Sony RX-100 RAW files. Hurray!!!!
