I am happy to applause to latest new release of LR Classic. Still unresolved known bugs which are in since quite a long time, but to keep us happy new features which we all desperately waited for. Thank you Adobe.

Adobe needs to devote a couple releases to JUST bug fixes. Adding features can wait.

Unfortunately John its not although FULL was not the word to use.  There are several issues concerning Date/Time, that are well documented and acknowledged that have been in Lr for a long time. I see these pop up in the forums on a regular basis and the answer is "Add your me too at this thread that has been acknowledged and maybe Adobe will fix it".  There are issues with character case working differently between the filters and smart collections.  I could list others but the fact is if you can't depend 100% of the time on your Library database selections it makes the DAM capabilities not useful. I have spent a significant amount of time helping document  detailed, repeatable scenarios of database selection issues that have been acknowledged and not fixed.  I think the new features are great but bugs need to be fixed too, especially database selection bugs and catalog integrity issues.

I still think that's an exaggeration, Bob, even after one strikes the word "full". I'd also characterize the issue not as bugs, but as a series of half-baked implementations. Sure, it's a minor miracle when anything is fixed (eg Title finally got an Is Empty criterion) but you know I know this area pretty well too, and "certainly voids Lr being a DAM"? I wouldn't remotely claim that.

Bugs or half baked implementations, if correct results are not returned than the DAM portion can not be depended on.

But the DAM can be depended on, and I doubt that I am any less demanding than you.
