Three to four orderly releases of ACR per year have been the norm. Other than that, Adobe does not comment on unreleased software.
Personally, I'm not buying the k20D until it's fully supported by my raw conversion software of choice.
there should not be any problem; perhaps Pentax made some error in the DNG file. If you upload some files with yousendit, I take a close look.
Update: I see on DPReview, that the DNG files *are* processed by ACR, but the white balance is off.
Pentax is made a math error when they computed the camera profile they embed in DNGs. The colors look OK, but the temperature/tint numbers are way off.
Has this been reported to Pentax? If not, I will.
The exact same issue happened when the K10 came out back in November '06 so I am used to dealing with this. The WB presets won't work, but the sliders and eye dropper do. It certainly doesn't keep me from using the camera.
We need Pentax K20D support. If anyone at Adobe needs to some RAW PEF or DNG
files to work with let me know. I would be happy to provide some. I
understand from Thomas Knoll that Pentax messed up the white balance in the
DNG files. The K10D also had white balance issues so I am hoping Adobe can
work around this.
My understanding is that they're aware of it and the issue is being worked on.
I'd never worry about raw Pentax support in ACR. They've always been very responsive, ever since the *istD.

The K20D is supported as of today. :)
It is interesting the cameras support added in 4.4 mentions the K20D, but
nothing at all is said for the Lightroom update. Makes me wonder what Adobe
is doing or if their web site update team is just sloppy. Given the horrible
nature of their web site over the last few years, my money is on a sloppy
web site update team.
Camera support for Lightroom 1.4 is the same as for ACR 4.4. See list of cameras here:
K20D PEF files don't show thumbnails in ACR 4.4
This is despite doing the "clear cache" stuff you are supposed to do. Very annoying.
Hope this is fixed very soon!
K20D PEF files work just fine on my computer, with proper thumbnails.
Something is very wrong with your installation.
