Apple released a new build of Snow Leopard not too long ago and they have just updated and released a new build for devlopers. Aside from the obvious bug fixes, the new build (10A286), contains an update to Quicktime which is more minimalist and focused on playback. This version of Snow Leopard also includes Safari 4 as default and Finder includes a new Cocoa Desktop, Info Window and Contextual Menu.
[Update] – Again, World of Apple reports that Apple has seeded yet another build (9J27) of Snow Leopard to developers which included 8 fixes to the previous version. Does this mean we will see the retail version soon? We hope so, but it’s hard to tell the exact time of release other than this year.
The other day we heard of a professor who could not play a movie which he purchased on iTunes via a projector output from a new MacBook. This was due to an HDCP issue in Quicktime which disallowed him to output protected content through the new Mini DisplayPort on the updated MacBooks. Apple has now fixed this issue with the Quicktime 7.5.7 Update.
Due out by the end of the year, Pro Tools 8 will get a few updates and an interface makeover. The cosmetic changes look to give Pro Tools a more modern look. You can now configure the Edit Window Toolbar and all Editor windows are dockable as well. This update also includes new MIDI and Score Editor tools to go along with the new features.
Apple released the Final Cut Express 4.0.1 update for owners to download. The update addresses compatibility issues with AVCHD camcorders, improves stability when using third-party FxPlug plug-ins, and addresses a number of other minor issues and is available via software update. Quicktime was also updated when they released the ProRes QuickTime Decoder 1.0. This is a new piece of software that allows users to play Apple ProRes files through QuickTime.Read More
