Lightroom CC: Quick positive feedback after Mojave upgrade

I just want to share my very first launch of LR CC after a fresh install of OSX Mojave
And this is probably my very first positive post!

1) it seems 100% compatible  with Mojave. No problem at all. Great job.
2) it was very fast to display my batch of 8400 photos.
3) I've decide not to install any more LR Classic. It becomes totally useless because of toooo laggy. I will save some Gb on my HDD ^^
4) Pretty fast even while synchronizing. Impressive, it took me 2 weeks to synchronize 2000 photos in classic. Now in less than a night I will probably synch at full speed capability or my fiber the whole 8400 photos.

I will just  (on osx) :
not be able to print. (possible on iOS, great job)
not able to share (possible on iOS, great job)
not be able to search offline (not possible on iOS), I have to admit AI is not bad for simple things
not be able to manage keyword efficiency,
not be able to detect face,
not be able to edit multiple photos while in grid view,
not be able to display directory and edit tools at the same time,
not be able to filter photos with no tag,
not be able to filter photos with no gps data,
not be able to filter photos which are not in a folder,
not be able to manage smart folder,
not be able to create a contact sheet,
not be able to edit name,
not be able to add watermark (possible on iOS, great job),
not be able to drag and drop,

After 11 months it will be really appreciate to know a road map of what will be implemented 
We are totally blind and it is boring

The result is I will not import the whole 50.000 batch of my others picture. Search or filters is not powerful enough and smart folder does not exists to consider it as a real DAM.

I'm staying positive (really) and waiting for a fully loaded LR CC 2.0 for OSX.

That's great to hear Olivier. Just remember that because they're releasing updates every couple of months, there's not likely to be a big 2.0 release that makes all your dreams come true in one go. The days of big splashy releases are gone - but that's a good thing, because it means we get new features as soon as they're ready to ship instead of having to wait 18 months for a x.0 release.

> not be able to display directory and edit tools at the same time,
That one you can already do! Go to Preferences > Interface > and set Panel Tracks to Manual, then you can have both sides open at the same time.

You're right Victoria,  

I hope some future implementation will come.

Thank you for the Panel Track information. I found it directly. In French "piste des panneaux" did not push me to test the aim of this menu.
