It's the latest and last update for CS4.

ACR 5.7 uses the new demosaicing algorithm developed for ACR 6.x, but without the rest of the processing features that accompany it in 6.0. The new demosaicer produces sharper and more detailed conversions but, inevitably, slightly more noise.
You may want to reduce your ACR capture sharpening by reducing Detail (maybe from the default 25 down to 15) or using a bit more Mask.

In my opinion the newer algorithm is better in terms of noise because the noise is rendered on a more pixel by pixel basis. Most people call this noise more "film-like" and I find that NR programs have a much easier time removing it than the "blocky" noise of older ACR.

It will be able to read (and apply) those new settings (like adding film grain), but won't be able to alter them: http://photography-on-the.net …p?p=10061239&po​stcount=13

I'm curious wether that means that using a text editor to edit the .xmp file gives me those new features... Hmmmm. Anyone with ACR6 or LR3 want to share an .xmp? ;)

Problem is I'd have to buy a new Mac: It won't run on a G5, or I'd have been using it for a few months now :p
