So is this the real deal? You mean Lightroom 4 isn't in beta anymore? Yup, this is the real deal. This is the official Lightroom 4 launch. Adobe did release Lightroom in beta back in January.

The Basics panel in the Develop module of the Lightroom 4 Beta may not be the sexiest feature, but the improvements are quite powerful, and the new controls are one of the few new features that you will use many times every day. Working successfully with them requires that you change how you work with the sliders. The keys to successful work are to (1) understand that Exposure is now midtone brightness rather than the white point, and (2) that the sliders are designed to be worked from top to bottom.
The Lightroom 4 beta was released just over a week ago. Are you getting used to the changes? The new Develop controls undoubtedly take a little getting used to, particularly if you’ve used ACR or Lightroom for some years.
