    Camera Raw 4.6 is the latest update available for Photoshop CS3. Camera Raw 5 and later is only for CS4. More info about version 4.6 at http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4035

    If you are looking for free software to process raw files, check out RawThreapee. While learning it takes some time and software sometimes crashes, the raw conversion results are very good.
