    From Adobe:

    "Please note — Camera Raw 8.4 and DNG Converter 8.4 are no longer officially supported on the following platforms: Mac OS 10.6.x (Snow Leopard), Windows XP, Windows Vista.

    Welcome to the Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 8.4 for CS6/CC plug-in release candidate on Adobe Labs. A “release candidate” label indicates that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers. Camera Raw 8.4 RC for CS6 update includes support for many new cameras and lens profiles. A release candidate build of DNG Converter 8.4 is also provided.

    The Camera Raw plug-in provides easy access within Adobe Photoshop CS6 to the raw image formats produced by many leading professional and midrange digital cameras. For more information on the Camera Raw plug-in, please visit the Camera Raw pages on Adobe.com.

    The Camera Raw team would like the community to help verify the quality of the plug-in through normal usage as this will ensure that the plug-in is tested on a diversity of hardware and software configurations not available internally at Adobe. If you do experience an issue with this release candidate please report it within the Camera Raw discussion forum."

That download link is a 108 MB zip file with a "patchinstaller.exe" and a ton of "payloads".

All that to get a Camera Raw.8bi file which averages only 25 to 30 MB?

I like to try it to see if it fixes a bothersome bug, but want an easy way to revert to an older version if necessary.

Can anybody verify that running that patchinstaller will ONLY load a new Camera Raw.8bi file and do nothing else? I don't want to risk other changes to my system that are undocumented and can't be reversed.

the update includes about 60MB of new camera profiles and for Windows, I think they include 32 and 64 bit versions.

I think you stand more of a chance of messing your system by just trying to get the plugin than running the installer but that's your business.

Make a bootable backup first.

Besides the gui transparent fix(es) greenfield mentions, this version also incorporates before & after split-views (top & bottom or side-by-side) in the preview pane. Nice!

I didn't notice anything else different anyway. Did the clone and spot removal tabs always have a show-spot view? I may be spacing that off... <shrug>

Thanks for the heads up Fred, mightily appreciated!
