what does Lightroom do exactly? I do not have Photoshop, I have Photoshop Elements. I also have Pixelmator. is Lightroom of any use without full Photoshop?

wikipedia
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a photography software program developed by Adobe Systems for Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, designed to assist Adobe Photoshop users in managing large quantities of digital images and doing post production work. It is not a file browser like Adobe Bridge, but rather an image management application database which helps in viewing, editing, and managing digital photos, the same way photographers used to do in the non-digital world.

Lightroom is more of an image management program. It's very different than Photoshop or Pixelmator. It's kind of like Aperture, or iPhoto on steroids. You can do non destructive edits, and then export what you've edited for printing or posting to the web etc. I find it vastly more useful that Photoslop.

How did you get a free update? That's awesome! I got LR3 off of one of Amazon's lightning deals last year and love it.

I bought Lightroom 3 just before V4 was released. I guess that Adobe has some policy that allows people who buy something within a certain time window of a new product release to get the new version for free. Others here got the same deal.
