Adobe Lightroom Classic 7.2 Released

From Adobe blog :

“In the past, many users have reported that Lightroom becomes slower after a prolonged usage. This issue should have been fixed with this version. Also, resource-intensive activities, such as export, import, preview generation, and HD/panorama merge should be faster if your machine has 12 GM or more RAM. We, specifically, have implemented changes related to Threading Building Blocks (TBB). This should be effective on machines with 12 GB or more RAM.”
