Looks like the announcement of Adobe Lightroom 6 is not far away. LR6 DVD edition is already listed on Amazon UK (though it isn’t yet available). Adobe Lightroom 6 will work only with 64-bit operating systems. Announcement is expected somewhen between March and May 2015.

Future Versions of Lightroom Will Work Only with 64 Bit Operating Systems

lightroom5

Adobe Lightroom 5 price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

So, no longer MAC OS X Lion support, just to make an example.

Adobe announced that the upcoming Lightroom 6 will need at least Mac OS X 10.8 (or above) and a 64 bit version of Windows 7, 8, or 8.1. Lightroom 5 is thus the last version that will also work on a 32 bit operating system.

Update on OS Support for Next Version of Lightroom

We are hard at work on the next major release of Lightroom, and wanted to share some information on operating system requirements in order to give everyone time to prepare for the release.

In order to leverage the latest operating system features and technologies, Lightroom 6 will require Mac OS X 10.8 or above, or a 64 bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. Focusing our work on more modern operating systems and architectures allows us to spend more time adding functionality requested by users, including additional advanced imaging features and improving general application performance.

If you are on Mac OS X 10.7, or a 32 bit version of Windows, you will continue to be able to install and run Lightroom 5 and use Lightroom mobile. However, you will not be able to install Lightroom 6 until you upgrade to a supported operating system.

If you are currently running Mac OS X 10.7, Apple offers a free upgrade (here) to a more current operating system. For Windows users, Microsoft has a how-to reference (here) to help you determine whether you are running a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows.
