The latest version of Lightroom CC for Desktops was released today (22 August 18). This release is primarily focussed on new camera and lens support.
There are a couple of album related new features in this build. The new ‘Store Album Locally’ setting allows you to save original copies of that album’s photos locally. Adobe are suggesting that you use this option when travelling. In particular, when you know that you’re going to be offline or on a low bandwidth internet connection.
The second new feature is intended to help you establish which, if any, albums a particular image is in. To see it in operation, click on an image then click on the ‘Info panel’, and scroll to the new ‘Albums’ panel.
