Lightroom, Photoshop etc. with Mojave — any benefits?

I am hesitating to upgrade to MacOS Mojave for reasons unrelated to Adobe software, and I also have seen a few discussions here about problems with Lightroom Classic and Photoshop running under Mojave.

My question is simple: has anyone found something about Mojave that makes Lightroom, Photoshop, Bridge or Camera Raw more powerful, easier to use, or any other benefit? If you have had problems with Mojave, I suggest you post them in their own threads so that Adobe might see them.

I realized some performance improvements for LR 7.5 and now LR 8 under Mojave.  However, LR 7.5 has been documented to crash when switching between Dark Mode and Light Mode.  Doesn't bother me as I do not use Dark Mode—it's butt ugly.

However, LR still has performance issues which seems to have been made worse as time goes on, especially with large catalogs or large raw files.  Mojave basically improved my user experience, but it did not offer any cures.
