Lightroom 4.2 and Camera Raw 7.2 are now available as a Release Candidates on Adobe Labs. The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that these updates are well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of Adobe’s customers. As is normally the case, Adobe have also noted that the final release of Lightroom 4.2 and Camera Raw 7.2 may have additional corrections or camera support.
Adobe report that the following bugs that were part the Lightroom 4 releases have been corrected:
- Folder stacks with virtual copies get unstacked when moving to another folder
- Stacked photos get hidden in both the Grid view and Filmstrip. This occurs when photos get unstacked as a result of enabling auto-stacking.

- Unable to upload files to Flickr if there is a carriage return in either the Title or Caption fields (Windows only).

- Double byte characters are not being exported to PDF in Books
- Photos were exported with original GPS coordinates recorded by the camera, not with the GPS coordinates updated in Lightroom.
