A Content Aware Mask that works like Content Aware Fill in Photoshop is something I would like to see implemented in a future version of Lightroom.

Something that works like Content Aware Fill in Photoshop. Just another option to keep one from having to use Photoshop, and in a non-destructive way.

Maybe I should have called it a ADJUSTMENT BRUSH - CONTENT AWARE slider.

In Lightroom, Paint the adjustment brush over the part of the image you want to remove. Adjust the slider called CONTENT AWARE, and it majically disapears.

I've been waiting forever for Content aware to move to Lightroom.  It would be a nice addition to the Spot Removal tool.  "Clone/Heal/Content Aware Fill"  So when I use spot removal to take out a offending blemish Lightroom could do a Content aware replacement from multiple sources instead of just clone stamp from elsewhere in the picture.

Content-aware technology creates pixels based on the surroundings, rather than just copy an area. Because of the nature of the parametric editing in Lightroom, I doubt that this could be done without severe speed consequences. Lightoom would have to define each pixel in the filled area individually and write that to XMP. That would make this info huge if you had a significantly large area. This in turn would have severe consequences for the entire application, not just for this one image. If you'd use content-aware fill regularly, your catalog would become a monster, slowing down everything Lightroom does.
