Adobe just put out today to the public the new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.3 Release Candidate and the Camera Raw 5.3 also has a Release Candidate.
The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers. The Lightroom team would like the community to help verify the quality of this update through normal usage as this will ensure that the application is tested on a diversity of hardware and software configurations not available internally at Adobe.
If you do experience an issue with this release candidate please report it here: Bug Report Form.
For more information on Lightroom 2 please visit the Lightroom pages on Adobe.com.

The translation effort for these languages is over 90% complete in this release. We appreciate your feedback as we complete this work so that we can ensure that the final release provides a high quality update for all of these new languages.

Notes on the Additional Languages
* Localized help is not yet available for these additional language versions
* The new language versions cannot be installed simultaneously with the English/French/German 2.3 RC build
I'd like to thank everyone who contributed in the Adobe User to User forums to help us track down some of the bugs we corrected in this release.
This release installs alongside with your current version so it will not overlap the older one.
