Lightroom SDK: LrHttp.get and .post are suddenly broken.

They always return a table with an error, error-code "unknown" - "The system cannot find the file...". No matter what the URL is (as long as its not malformed), the response is immediate, and always the same, regardless of the other parameters or whether there is a working internet connection or no

Lightroom: Allow users to define custom metadata

It has come to my realization that a fair number of feature requests could be satisfied simply by allowing users to define custom metadata *without* having to install a 3rd party plugin. All too often users want to "make notes" about a photo, or associate photos somehow, or record some photo status

LIghtroom SDK: Please add ability to udate Lr preview on disk (in preview "cache").

@v4, plugins have the ability to display catalog photos (thank you), via the preview mechanism. However, it may need a moment to re-render before displaying. I would like to have plugins be more responsive when displaying catalog_photo, *and* be able to write a background task with look-ahead previe

Lightroom SDK: photo:getHistogram (or equivalent)

It would be very useful for certain kinds of develop setting plugins to have access to histogram data, for example, a table with relative number of pixels at each luminosity. Initial motivation for request is to support an auto-toning plugin, but I bet other uses would be thought of too... Should

Lightroom SDK: choose a narrower default font on Mac, preferrably same width as in Windows.

Default font on Mac is substantially wider than in Windows, which means Windows either has a margin compared to Mac, or Mac has truncated UI compared to Windows. Alternative solution: choose a fatter font in Windows. I prefer to fit more info, but the ultimate goal is to be able to develop on one,

Lightroom SDK: add hooks for sorting

Please add hooks so plugins can be involved in photo sorting. Presently, only fixed sorts are supported, e.g. Capture Time ... User Order, but no way for a plugin to define "sort by pixel count" or "long dimension", or anything like that.

Lightroom SDK: need catalog:saveMetadata( photos ) and catalog:readMetadata( photos )

Yes - jumping the gun here... the new photo:saveMetadata() and photo:readMetadata() functions (@Lr5.0 undocumented and unreleased) are very welcome and useful - thank you. However they are slow as molasses if multiple photos need metadata saved/read - we need a batch version. Sorry if premature,

Lightroom SDK: How to do plugin initiated restart of Lightroom on Mac.

On Windows, it's lightroom.exe -restart "full_path_to_catalog.lrcat" Is there a Mac-compatible equivalent? Note: this would be useful for cross-catalog plugins, or plugins that change things that will only take effect upon restart...
