Lightroom is very sluggish when using the Develop Module since I upgraded to 5.5. The point curve and basic sliders are very slow to update. It's particularly bad when using an adjustment brush. The brush strokes and edits often take 5-10 seconds to appear.

It is really slow for me as well. Exports seem to be taking priority over the other actions your are doing in Develop. Moving from photo to photo is dramatically slower.

5.5 is indeed super sluggish...how the heck did this get released? Back to 5.4 for me - or to wait for 5.6 - I'm using Windows 7 with 16GB, i7 4770K,

I think I might roll back my copy also. I don't process with a deadline in mind, but it is so slow that it is still quite exasperating.
