From the Lightroom Journal:
Camera Raw 9.3.1 is now available through the update mechanism in Photoshop CC and the Creative Cloud application. This version fixes a bug that resulted in inaccurate tiles, such as black or white squares when not expected, when opening images in Photoshop. Please note that this bug typically only appeared when using both the Camera Raw plug-in and Photoshop for long running sessions.
Thank you for all your assistance in helping us find and fix this issue! Thanks! Download Links

Oddly enough, B&H still hasn't sold their monster Canon (or is that, "cannon?") after adding it to their used inventory back in April
. I wonder why no one's yet to take advantage of the awesome opportunity to own Canon's biggest, baddest lens? :-)
For today only, B&H has several tripods and monopods on sale. See below for more information. Tripod/Monopod Deals
From the Lightroom Journal:
In October, we released Lightroom 2.0 for iOS which made it possible to use Lightroom on iPhones and iPads without a paid subscription, and the response has been phenomenal. Today we’re excited to announce Lightroom for Android version 1.4, which adds the same free offering for Android users. The ability to use Lightroom for mobile without a paid subscription means that anyone can take advantage of the organizational, editing, and sharing abilities that Lightroom for mobile offers. Signing up for a free trial or logging in with a Creative Cloud subscription adds the ability to synchronize files and edits with Lightroom on a desktop or laptop, as well as with Lightroom Web.
We’re really excited to continue our focus on Android and pleased that Lightroom for mobile was recently listed by Google as one of the top apps of 2015
. We’ve seen Android grow as a platform over the years, with billions of users around the world. As a photography platform, Android is making huge leaps and strides. New devices are being launched all the time with better and better cameras, and with the launch of Lollipop and the ability to shoot raw DNG files, Android provides one of the most powerful photography platforms available. Lightroom for Android supports raw DNG workflows making it possible to enhance images and take full advantage of all of the quality and details found in images captured on Android devices. If you’d like to read more about the exciting abilities that DNG can offer, check out this awesome blog post
by our friend, Martin Evening.
We’re committed to making Lightroom Mobile for Android better and better and can’t wait to share some of the improvements we’re working on. Keep checking back with us, but for now, download Lightroom Mobile for Android 1.4

has written a thorough and informative article on the open standard DNG file format.
From the Photoshop Blog
Is it wise to convert your raw files to the Adobe DNG format? If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop with Camera Raw, you have the option to convert your master files to DNG. In this article I want to focus on the benefits of converting, the reasons why converting to DNG may not always be ideal or necessary, as well as tackle some of the misinformation about DNG.
