I have not done any scientific tests, but when Lr4 first came out I was among the many people complaining about its speed. Sluggishness was particularly noticeable with multiple adjustment brush pins and graduated filters. With Lr4.2, even with numerous adjustment brush points an a couple of filters, slider delay is minimal.

I have no idea what the problem was or what Adobe did to fix it, but I can see a big improvement. Thank you, Adobe.

I really enjoy using old primes on my m4/3 camera. There's something about having to choose your aperture and actually focusing your camera that makes it so much more like... like... PHOTOGRAPHY!

I would agree with your sentiments but I suspect that a few aren't still satisfied? What I would like to see is a future version that has all the components that Photoshop has at the current price of LR. Wink

I never had major problems on my 2-year-old i7 machine, but 4.2 does appear a bit quicker.  The only delay: about a 4-5 second delay the first time into Develop Module after running LR.

I, too, have noticed the delay when going into the develop module, but I had not associated it with any particular revision. I hadn't figured out that it only happens the first time, but that may be the case; I just assumed it was kind of random and didn't give it much concern.

sure can't say I'm impressed with any speed increase,, was thinking of going back to 4.0,,

I bought a new tower running I7 and 16 gig of ram,, it blazes though about anything I throw at it but the 4.2 actually seems slower on most all items,,

having never done any video the new 800E has offered a few nice test for me,, 4.2 is really slow exporting a file to a folder on the desktop,, reminded me of the dial up days seeing that bar craw so slow,,

I do like LR but never say it is really fast,,

Yes, I've seen things improve from 4b > 4.1 > 4.2

Process 2012 is significantly better in processing images, but it's a serious annoyance that I've had to spend nearly six times the cost of the LR software upgrade to upgrade my hardware to make it run as smoothly as LR3.

FWIW, I didn't measure anything but don't see any speed gap between LR3.6 and LR4.2 (didn't pass through earlier LR4 versions).
I got a modest setup (AthlonIIX4 645, 12GB RAM) but only one HD screen so far and 12-15MP files.
