I am also interested in this one. If Adobe try to push us (Long time Adobe fans) into a CC- solution, I will look for other programs in the future. Will e.g. "Dehaze" be updated in Lr6?
Adobe will continue to update the stand alone version of LR6 like previous versions. So there will be regular camera raw updates as new camera models are released together with essential fixes.
Only creative cloud subscribers receive the new features.
So there is a choice of two pricing models:
-Wait for LR7 and pay for the upgrade when all the new features should become available
-Subscribe and get all the new features as they are released
Yes I agree.
In fact only "Remove or add atmospheric haze to images" is really of interest; and all the social media stuff is of little interest to me.
I'm not sure in truth why I paid for the upgrade from 5 to 6 as there is very little in it and the HDR and panorama merge is not really flexible enough. On top of that the GPU acceleration does not work on my current GPU.
Radial and graduated filter brush editing is the most useful feature of LR6
Lightroom 6 will receive updates as far as support for new cameras is concerned. However, there will be no new features added to Lightroom 6. New features will be postponed until the release of Lightroom 7 at some point in the future.
