From EPI:
 
27’’ Monitor Delivers 50 Percent More Color Than Traditional LED Displays
 
Fremont, California – March 15, 2016 – Today EPI (North America brand license partner for Philips Monitors) announces the world’s first quantum dot-based monitor (E-line 276E6ADSS) is now available in North America. The new 27-inch monitor delivers 99% Adobe RGB color - 50 percent more color than traditional LED displays - thanks to Color IQ technology from QD Vision. The new E6 is ideal for entertainment, gaming, professional photography and design. It combines Color IQ optics with full HD resolution, resulting in a professional quality display at the price of mainstream monitors. The Philips 27-inch Quantum Dot display is now available on Amazon for $299.
 
QD Vision's Color IQ solution uses an innovative new semiconductor technology called quantum dots to precisely and efficiently convert light, delivering bluer blues, greener greens and redder reds. The result — vibrant, dynamic, “you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it” color.
 
Most of today's high-end monitors are capable of displaying only 95% of the Adobe RGB color gamut, while mainstream models are often limited to showing 70% of the Adobe spectrum. Using QD Vision's Color IQ solution, the Philips 27-inch Quantum Dot Display will deliver over 99% of the Adobe RGB spectrum - more than 100% of the standard sRGB color gamut - but at a fraction of the price of commercial displays.
 
The IPS-ADS display offers 1920 x 1080 resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, 1000:1 static contrast, 5ms response time and 178°/178° viewing angles, making it possible to view the display from almost any angle. Unlike standard TN panels, IPS-ADS displays give you remarkably crisp images with vivid colors, making them ideal not only for photos, movies and web browsing, but also for professional applications that demand color accuracy and consistent brightness at all times. Ports include; VGA, DVI-D, HDMI (with MHL) and a 3.5mm audio output jack.

From Adobe:
 
Lightroom CC 2015.5 and Lightroom 6.5 are now available on Adobe.com. Our focus with this release was to add support for new cameras and lenses, and also fix many bugs that existed in previous versions of Lightroom.
 
Thank you for all your feedback and passion for Lightroom.
 
Bugs Fixed in Lightroom CC 2015.5 / 6.5
 
  • Bug fixes related to Panorama Merge
    • Scared that pesky sensor dust spots will ruin your perfect pano? No problem, remove spots in 1 image and then merge to pano. Lightroom takes care of the rest.
    • Boundary Warp gets better as we fixed a bunch of bugs
    • Removed the ‘auto’ projection option. Turns out, it always picked the same projection mode.
  • Other Bug Fixes
    • Rename failed if raw+jpeg pairs were copied to a second location
    • Shooting tethered, shutter button will not move to top of the screen
    • The video cache was not correctly limited to the size set in Preferences
    • Photomerge fails with virtual copies
    • Droplets no longer work with Export Actions
    • Impromptu slideshow gave error message “video support is disabled”
    • Import didn’t work if you weren’t signed in
    • Certain dates couldn’t be entered in Edit Capture Time dialog (1966, 1969, 1999, etc.)
    • Videos wouldn’t play on some systems
    • Slideshow module wouldn’t work on some systems
    • Fixed a ton of sync errors. Faster sync to the Lightroom iOS and Android apps
    • Scrolling through images in Loupe view with your mouse is back! (sorry that it went away in the first place)
    • Slideshows are back in high-resolution. Fixed a bug that caused them to appear much lower res than expected
    • Books are made for browsing. We’ve reinstated scroll bars so that you can browse faster in the Book module
    • Incorrect value for EXIF:ColorSpace in exported TIFFs
    • After export shortcut CTRL+ALT+S not working in Develop
    • Crashes when tethered to Canon cameras (5dm3, 5ds, 1dsm3)
    • SDK broken edit_field’s validate function, disabling existing plugins
    • Months in non-English configurations show in English
    • Secondary Window blocks mouse clicks even when closed after switching desktop spaces
    • Can’t import DNG files from Parrot Bebop drone
    • Watermark loses setting after Edit dialog opened
