Adobe has released a new update to both Lightroom CC (2.4.1) and Lightroom Classic (8.4.1). Also updated The September update for its Camera RAW plugin (11.4.1), the software that enables users to import and edit Raw images in the company’s creative software applications like Photoshop and Bridge.
With the updated support, users can edit RAF images from the Fujifilm X-A7, as well as RW2 files from the Lumix DC-S1H and ARW files from the two newly added Sony cameras. Adobe Camera Raw 11.4.1 is available to download for Windows and macOS for free from Adobe’s website.

What’s New 11.4.1:
Enhanced GPU support for accelerated image editing
GPU acceleration speeds up image processing most noticeably for photos with several adjustments and for high resolution monitors (4K and higher). You can enable the new GPU acceleration features on supported systems in the Performance tab of Camera Raw Preferences. On some computers the feature is enabled automatically. To know more, see GPU FAQ and troubleshooting.
Edge aware editing in 360-degree panoramas
Previously, when making adjustments to a 360-degree panorama it could result in a seam appearing around the merged edges, especially if you edit Clarity or Dehaze. Starting with this release, you can make seamless edits to 360-degree panoramas, even when adjusting Clarity or Dehaze. This feature is currently not supported in the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop.
