Adobe has posted ACR 7.1 and Adobe DNG Converter 7.1 as release candidates. Camera Raw 7.1 adds new Defringe controls to help address chromatic aberration. Defringe is available as part of the Lens Correction panel. Camera Raw can also now read 16-bit, 24-bit, and 32-bit HDR files. Supported HDR formats are TIFF and DNG. It also adds support for 22 new cameras (including the Nikon D800 pictured above) and incorporates five new lens profiles. Note that ACR 7.1 is only compatible with Photoshop CS6.
