I wish to register my extreme disappointment with your decision not to release a stand-alone, non-subscription version of Lightroom beyond the current version 6. I've been waiting for Lightroom 7 for a couple of years now so I can upgrade from Lightroom 4. I do not want to use a subscription-based service, and you have been promising for a very long time that Lightroom would remain available in a one-time purchase model, unlike Photoshop and your other programs. You have apparently gone back on this promise.
Please, Adobe, reconsider this move. You have a very loyal user base for your stand-alone, non-subscription Lightroom product. Please release Lightroom 7 as a regular, pay-once product -- as you promised you would continue to do.
