Much of the LrDevelopController API is broken in languages other than English German or Swedish. When a user switches the language to one of the above, the plugins work normally. See https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/midi2lr/BSk7LVw7GTY for a conversation regarding this.

Does Adobe do QA on these releases? One has to assume so, but for the life of me I don't think I've ever used any other s/w that is still so full of issues after so many versions

Great, I hope the bug can be fixed quickly. I am experiencing the same problems and I have a lot of customers emailing me that the plug-in does not work.
For now I am advising them to switch to using English.

The problem is caused by LrDevelopController.getValue() and setValue() not working properly on these parameter names in languages other than English, German, and Swedish:

Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks, Clarity

Note that these are exactly the names that map to different develop settings based on the current process version of the photo. For example, the LrDevelopController parameter "Exposure" maps to the photo:getDevelopSettings() key "Exposure2012" for PV 4 and PV 3 (2012) but to "Exposure" for earlier process versions.

Most likely the lookup is now incorrectly doing language translation somewhere in that mapping process. (These keys are all supposed to be in English, as with all keys and parameters in the SDK.)

The workaround is to use "Exposure2012" when dealing with a PV 3 or 4 photo, and "Exposure" for earlier process versions.  That's undocumented but it works. (LrDevelopController seems to accept most of the same parameter names as photo:get/setDevelopSettings().)

Here's a debugger screenshot demonstrating this bug for "Exposure":

Note that this bug will affect anyone using a hardware controller with LR.  Also see these two reports:

https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2398759 

The latter is from the same person behind the thread Rory Jaffe posted above.

Google Translation:  "Midi keyboard. I use a LaunchControl Midi Keyboard with programmed keys this one worked fine until the new LR CC version, some still go but not the others. What can"

As you can see from this topic, Adobe has acknowledged the bug and said "we'll try to get it fixed soon."  

Two workarounds:

1. Use LR in English, German, or Swedish.

2. Roll back to LR CC 2015.12 / 6.12.

I had previously enjoyed using MIDI2LR to easily edit my photos. Now I can't get the device to interface with LR. I'm told it's a LR bug that needs to be squished. Please bring a can of RAID

How are you testing that?  I just tested LR 7.0.1 / MacOS 10.12.6 in Dutch and French and got the same incorrect results:

With LR 7.0.1 / Windows 10 the sliders are working with MIDI2LR using a Behringer X-Touch mini.

Strange thing is I was using LR 7.0.0 in english and after the update to 7.0.1 Lightroom was back in dutch.

It's not fixed in 7.0.1. The fix should be there in the next release.

Even stranger: partly fixed. Sharpening Amount, Noise Reduction Luminance, Dehaze and Angle faders are working in Dutch. Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks and Clarity are not working in Dutch. These are faders I've assigned.

Part of the 7.0.2 release?

"Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks and Clarity are not working in Dutch."

That's right -- the broken settings are Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks, Clarity.  See the detailed bug report above:

One of my users found a workaround that may help pinpoint the source of the problem. A French user replaced the TranslatedStrings_Lr_xx_XX.txt file with the file from the previous version of Lightroom. At the very least, this fixed Exposure Contrast and Clarity. See https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/midi2lr/vOje4y3CNhQ for details.
