It appears the last Lightroom update is pretty buggy. At least so much buggy that Adobe decided to post about it:
Lightroom team wanted to let the community know that we’re investigating some critical performance and crasher bugs, and will be issuing an update shortly to address them.
If you are experiencing crashing or slowdowns, please try the following:
- Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
- Click on the General tab
- Uncheck “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”
- Restart Lightroom
Yesterday Adobe released an update to Lightroom CC (2015.2). The most notable new feature is the Dehaze feature being now available also as a local adjustement (video above). Other updates concern the “new import experience” and more stuff (videos below). The Dehaze update is not available for Lightroom standalone version.

Adobe released an update for Lightroom CC. New lens profiles have been added, even for FD lenses (see after the break). Use the Help-> Check for Updates menu item or the Creative Cloud application to install this desktop update. Again, this update is not available for Lightroom standalone version. A new version of Camera Raw (ver. 9.2) is also available for download.

Dehaze as a Local Adjustment*
We added Dehaze as a global adjustment in the Lightroom CC 2015.1 release and are excited to see the widespread interest in the feature. We wanted to extend the functionality, and I’m happy to announce that you can now apply Dehaze as a Local Adjustment. This means that you can use Dehaze with the Radial Filter, Graduated Filter and Local Adjustment Brush.
