Following on from the Leopard Experiences Gary suggested that we pool our experiences and share any issues that we have come across or know about with Leopard and specific applications.
Here’s a thought for you. How about a post which asks your community about which applications they’ve found problems with under Leopard? Which ones will definitely require an update because they no longer work, and which ones, like Lightroom, work to an extent (and what fails)?
In particular applications that will require and upgrade, and applications that you want to know about first before upgrading.
Gary for example is interested to know if anyone has any experience to date with the Canon suite of camera applications?
For example I have posted already on the Adobe issues, but will repeat them here to get thing up and running:
Adobe have commented on its compatibility with Leopard, “most, but not all of its applications are compatible with Leopard without the need for an update.”
Applications that are compatible are:
- Adobe Photoshop CS3
- Flash CS3 Professional
- Contribute CS3
- Dreamweaver CS3
- Fireworks CS3
- Flash Player 9
- GoLive 9
- Illustrator CS3
- InCopy CS3
- InDesign CS3
- Bridge CS3
- Version Cue CS3
- Device Central CS3
- Acrobat Connect (Start Meeting)
Products that will require an upgrade to be fully Leopard compatible are:
- Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional
- Adobe Premiere Pro CS3
- After Effects CS3 Professional
- Encore CS3
- Soundbooth CS3
Adobe said it expects to publish free Leopard compatibility updates for the video applications in December 2007 and for Acrobat 8 Professional and Adobe Reader 8 in January 2008.
Older versions of Adobe and Macromedia may work with Leopard, but the company warns there could be â€œinstallation, stability, and reliability issues for which there is no resolution.â€? Adobe said these products would not be updated for Leopard.
So over to you guys, what do you know, what do you want to know ……….
