Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 updates

[[** UPDATE **]]
Currently the Lightroom 1.4 update has been recalled after bugs were discovered all links to the Lightroom 1.4 update are redirected to the older 1.31 update for now. As per the comments from Adobe, you should avoid installing the Lightroom 1.4 update until a newer 1.41 update is availible that fixes these bugs Thanks for bringing this to my attention in the comments.
[[** UPDATE **]]

The Lightroom team have posted an announcement that Lightroom and Camera Raw have both been updated. According to the post the update wont filter through the Adobe Update system until next week, so if you want to get the update early you can find them on the adobe site and download them manually.

Ultra-Edit Text Editor Goes Portable, But at a price.

In previous posts I have espoused the virtues of portable applications, and provided a list of applications I keep installed on my USB Drive. One application I have used for a number of years is IDM Computer Solutions Ultra Edit. This feature rich text/hex editor has now been updated to be compatible with the U3 portable drive system. I haven’t installed it yet though. Why? Well I think the price is a bit steep, especially since I currently hold an unlimited upgrade license for Ultra-Edit, Ultra-Compare and Ultra-Sentry. I just cant justify the extra expense for another copy of Ultra-Edit, just for the privilege of having it run from a USB Drive. Since switching to a Mac I guess I feel spoiled by all the fantastic free software that is availible. The idea of paying for 2 copies of one application seems a little alien now. 😀

I stumbled across this on the Adobe.com press area. The suite looks like it contains all the products you could need from Adobe if you are required to produce Technical Documentation, Training Material, Help files for products and even E-learning courses.

Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced Adobe® Technical Communication Suite software, a first-of-a-kind, integrated solution for authoring, managing, and publishing technical information and training content across multiple formats and languages

The Full Press release can be found on the Adobe.com Website.
