Adobe announced today that the next version of Lightroom, Lightroom 6, will only operate on 64-bit operating systems. This means they are focusing more on performance and features rather than backwards compatibility with older computers or older operating systems. So, if you are currently using Windows Vista, Windows XP or anything prior to Mac OS X 10.8, then you’ll need to upgrade to a newer operating system such as Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or at least Mac OS X 10.8 or above.

If you won’t be upgrading your operating system, then you’ll be able to use Adobe Lightroom 5 into the future.

Here’s the text from their blog post:

Update on OS Support for Next Version of Lightroom

We are hard at work on the next major release of Lightroom, and wanted to share some information on operating system requirements in order to give everyone time to prepare for the release.

In order to leverage the latest operating system features and technologies, Lightroom 6 will require Mac OS X 10.8 or above, or a 64 bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. Focusing our work on more modern operating systems and architectures allows us to spend more time adding functionality requested by users, including additional advanced imaging features and improving general application performance.

If you are on Mac OS X 10.7, or a 32 bit version of Windows, you will continue to be able to install and run Lightroom 5 and use Lightroom mobile. However, you will not be able to install Lightroom 6 until you upgrade to a supported operating system.

If you are currently running Mac OS X 10.7, Apple offers a free upgrade (here) to a more current operating system. For Windows users, Microsoft has a how-to reference (here) to help you determine whether you are running a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows.
