Lightroom CC 2015.2 overloads CPU and/or crashes.

Upgraded to Lightroom CC 2015.2 and it started crashing on export (without any error messages). Unchecked “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”, it stopped crashing but see my Activity Monitor screenshot attached. CPU load jumps from 200 to 800% and laptop heats like crazy.

I seriously hope it will be fixed ASAP, this is very frustrating, I am processing around 500 RAWS daily.

Also, after upgrading OS to El Capitan, I have worked with an older LR version for a couple of days and was definitely ok.

This helped, but only partially — it's not crashing anymore but still occupies all CPU and overheats the laptop. Never been an issue before.

I suggest that you check out the next hot fix update of Lr that fixes the crash and some performance issues.
