Start with the What's New link in the announcement above.  But then see Victoria Bampton's release notes, which are usually more comprehensive.

If you don't see the Update button, before signing out of the Creative Cloud desktop application and signing back in, you should also try clicking the three dots at the top right corner of the CC application window and choose "Check for App Updates." That causes a manual reload.

I find it pretty annoying that both the english and the german what's new page don't say anything about this update (which i just received). In addition the "new features" link in the help menu even results in a 404 error page. Something like this should not happen. Is there any release management in place?

Hi Melissa, the link you've  posted above does not work at the first try for me. I just checked. I ended up at   https://forums.adobe.com/welcome

When i clicked the link again i first got a message about leaving the forum because of an external url" and then after some seconds the redirect worked. So maybe this is a bug of this forum.

Second issue are the official product pages for LR classic cc:
https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom-classic/features.html
and in german:
https://www.adobe.com/de/products/photoshop-lightroom-classic/features.html

which are not mentioning the update.

And last but not least. In the help menu of LR classic CC (german version) the first entry is "Neue Funktionen" which translates to "New features" or maybe "What's new" if you want. When i click this, the browser opens a 404 "not found" page 

http://www.adobe.com/404.html

I have not found a way to see what page it tried to reach in the first place even though i'm a web developer and tried everything. Weird behaviour...

hope this helps...

found it. This is the url which the 1st entry in help menu tries to open:

http://www.adobe.com/go/lr-whats-new_de

The reponse is a 302 (moved temporarily) redirect to 

http://www.adobe.com/404.html

Thanks for these details, Nico. I'm investigating them now.

So, I've figured out that I had pasted the redirect link from the Adobe Forums for "What's New" instead of the direct link. That should be fixed now.

I've passed that Features page issue to the respective team.

Lastly, I've logged an issue for the German "What's New" page.

Thanks again for your help here!

Nico, 

I think issue #2 and #3 have now been fixed. Can you please check the New Features page for the added new feature update and the German What's New page to see if it still throws that error?

Thanks again for reporting these,
Melissa

I think it is pointless to put in a "What's New" link that simply points to the general Adobe page where it is not obvious how to find anything about what's new.

Hi Richard,

As I mentioned in a above comment, the "What's New" link I posted is an anchor link to the specific section about yesterday's update. Can you try clicking it again and seeing if that section loads for you? If not, please let me know.

Thanks,
Melissa

@ Richard. I thought the same thing when I clicked on it the first time. Click on it again(a second or maybe third time) and it will take you to the relevant page(I think the forum maybe buggy too)

The link does only work if you're logged in ;) So that's why it works after everyone logs in to complain (me included)

But still it's weird to publish the release notes in the help section only. What about the official product page? There's a "whats new" section too... I bet most people will look there first (like me)

Hi again,

The link worked loaded correctly for me when I wasn't logged in before. Perhaps, it was a case of a cached web page?

I've passed your second comment about the Features page to the respective team.

Let me know if you come across any other issues!

Thanks,
Melissa

I have previously suggested this (so the anticipations are very low): Why on earth does the "What's New" in the Adobe CC Desktop app not point to this link: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/whats-new.html#LightroomClassicCCv71December2017

In other words, please, with sugar on top, make the link in the CC Desktop app more meaningful and make it point to the FULL release notes in the future. Not the garbage "hey look we've got new features". It always takes me 5 minutes to find the release notes...

You are dealing with professionals here. Most of us want concrete information and no marketing blah blah!!

Hey Alex,

Thanks for that feedback - I'll pass that along to the responsible team.

Just to make sure we're on the same page, the What's New link in the CC app is linking to this one: https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom-classic/features.html

We have two other pages we refer to for full summaries of what updates include, which are the following:

1. the one you've mentioned: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/whats-new.html#LightroomClassicCCv71December2017
2. https://theblog.adobe.com/announcing-december-update-lightroom/

The feature listed from the What's New link (Auto) is the only new feature added in this update and the other link you've mentioned includes the new feature, enhanced features, and bug fixes.

Is #1 still preferable to the current What's New link?

Thanks,
Melissa

Hi Melissa, Thanks for reply!

I would really appreciate if the clickable information in the Desktop App was more informative and I strongly believe that the 1. link you provided would be perfect.

Currently the Desktop App does not link anywhere. It reads "What's New" which unfolds a totally useless piece of marketing blah blah about Sensei and "bug fixes". See following screenshots.





As we all know, new versions can be very good, but also can be disastrous. So I for my part like to read what exactly changed before I install an update.

Hi Melissa. I think what we (all) are asking for is a complete list of features added and bugs fixed. Many of us have asked for a list of acknowledged bugs, but currently the only way to refer to bugs is to link to a posting on this discussion site, which can be confusing given the "me too, except in my case it's completely different" postings.

Given that, the first link is just marketing fluff, and the 3d link is not in any way comprehensive. The second link is the best.

But, really, shouldn't Adobe have an internally-written description and reference it when saying that a bug has been resolved? When, for instance, Adobe only partially fixes a bug, and the discussion has 53 entries (and growing, probably), it is very difficult for a user to suss out what has actually been changed.

Hey Ronald,

Can you confirm if this issue of crashing when syncing a large number of photos occurs with only 7.1 or does it occur on 7.2 and the latest release version 7.3?

Let us know,
Melissa

Even if I find very upsetting the once-again-delayed support for HEIC I must thank the team for the new profiles addition and the possibility to adjust the amount of it, enabling new creative editing possibilities!
