LR 6.2 slows down to a snails pace on my Mac. Why?

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: CC 2015.2 User interface extremely sluggish and unusable

I am a 2015CC subscriber and I updated LR 6.1.1 to 6.2 two days ago. I was happy with the new tools on the first day then saw the warning about the import change and looked into this on the next day. Whils't being surprised at the change I could still do what I wanted apart from ejecting automatically.
However when I went into the develop module the hard drive and processor started up big time and ALL functions in the develop module became 100 times slower making usage impossible. I followed advice to reset preferences, switch off the graphics processor and the show add photos in the general tab but these made no difference at all. LR was unusable. I then reverted back to LR 6.1.1 and will await an update to 6.2.
However the Creative cloud app no longer shows that I can update.
What I wanted to know was will I be able to update from CC when a new version is made, and will the slowdown occur again when I update. What was the slowdown due to?
I have a 2011 MBPro with 16Gb ram, 2.7 core i7 and running Yosemite.
Thank you in anticipation

It seems the slow down was caused primarily by the new Add Photos screen. An update is due very soon, and will hopefully fix this issue (although as with any software update, there are no guarantees that there isn't more than one bug in play).

Thank you Victoria. I hope so too. Any idea why the CC cloud app does not offer me the option to update to 6.2 any more? Just asking as don't want to update until there is another release, but wondered if Adobe had pulled 6.2 until it is sorted out?
Thanks,
Rich

Just an update. The CC app now offers the 6.2 upgrade which I will not be applying. It just took several hours for it to appear.

WHEN will the bug be fixed? I can't export any images. I need to asap. Should I uninstall 6.2 and reinstall 6.1? If so what will I lose?
