ProKit 5.0 Update

Apple updated ProKit to 5.0 today so run Software Update if you want it or click here: ProKit5

This update improves general user interface reliability for Apple's professional applications and is recommended for all users of Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Server, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Aperture, Final Cut Express HD, Soundtrack, Logic Pro and Logic Express.

It's causing some users installations to no longer consider their serial numbers valid, so you may want to make sure you have a backup so you can revert. People are saying everything from it's a bug to a consequence of using "unofficial" serial numbers -serves them right-. What I always do before ANY Final Cut Studio update is wait a week or two and see what the forums say. (Aside from the complaints of the price of the Academic upgrade to FCS3).

So FCP 7 is out. There are "100" new features kinda listed here. A more comprehensive list is here.

While most are LONG overdue and common sense I think some people will have issues with the new iChat Theater support because that means that producers can now virtually sit over your shoulder. Good in many instances but bad in some if you ask me.

Also, Apple has begun to unleash a large list of Release and Troubleshooting links, you can find a good list of them here.

Apple's actual support page is here.
