What's new in this version:

Lightroom 1.3 includes corrections for the following issues:
  • Writing XMP metadata automatically has been corrected for performance issues
  • Printing with the native resolution option enabled no longer sets the wrong dimension for portrait oriented images
  • Prior to Camera Raw 4.3 there was the possibility that artifacts in edge transitions could be introduced through the Bayer demosaic and luminance noise reductions algorithms. This has been corrected.
  • The Canon sRAW format and the Fuji compressed RAF formats are now supported. Lightroom 1.3 includes the following enhancements.
  • The import dialog now offers the option to render 1:1 previews as part of the import process

I am pleased they finally got around to making the screen update properly within Leopard :-) but I still have random crashes when adjusting much in the develop module. LR just goes unresponsive and must be killed and restarted. Happens to me as often as several times a day. I was hoping for a rock-solid release by 1.3...
