With the imminent release of Photoshop CS6 – which includes the latest Adobe Camera RAW converter v.7 – the ACR 6.7 Final Release is the last Camera Raw update for CS5.
Although this version does support the D4 and D800/E, contrary to what I expected, it does not include the Nikon D3200, which means that this camera will, at some point, be included in ACR 7.x and CS6.
Potential D3200 buyers who are planning on shooting NEF (RAW) should therefore consider that they will have to live with View NX2, upgrade either to Photoshop 6 (from $ 199), Lightroom 4 ($ 149) or Elements 10 (from $ 80) or – alternatively – go DNG (see this article) with the next upgrade of the DNG Converter (v.7.x), yet to be announced, let alone released.
Note that the D3200 is not included in ACR 7.0 (CS6 - shipping since 2012-05-07), either, even if the D4 and D800/800E are.
The Adobe Camera RAW 6.7 final release adds support for the following cameras:
· Canon EOS 1D X, EOS 5D Mark III, PowerShots G1 X & S100V
· Fuji FinePix F505EXR, F605EXR, F770EXR, F775EXR, HS30EXR, HS33EXR, X-S1
· Nikon D4, D800/E
· Olympus E-M5
· Pentax K-01
· Samsung NX20, NX210, NX1000
· Sony Alpha NEX-VG20, SLT-A57

The 6.7 FR plug-in for Windows can be downloaded here, the Mac version here.
Keep in mind that ACR v.6.x plug-ins are ONLY compatible with CS5, and that installing an incompatible version will cause problems in your Photoshop, Lightroom or Elements installation.
