Adobe Labs has made the ‘release candidate’ for its Photoshop plug-in, Camera Raw 8.1, available for download.

Release candidate versions of up-coming software have been well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before being distributed automatically to customers.  The new software includes support for the following cameras: Hasselblad H5D-60, Olympus PEN E-P5, Olympus PEN E-PL6, Pentax Ricoh GR, Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6, Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LF1 and preliminary support for the Phase One IQ260.
