OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.3 Update

by Nikolozi Meladze

Some audio related bug fixes from the 10.8.3 release notes: - A fix for an issue that may cause Logic Pro to become unresponsive when using certain plug-ins - A fix for an issue that may cause audio to stutter on 2011 iMacs

Interestingly, I've been experiencing audio stutter on my Retina MacBook Pro. Hopefully, this update fixes it.

Also, in Xcode 4.6.1 update Apple fixed the bug that bit me recently: - Fixes an issue where ARC-enabled apps would not launch on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

Easy MIDI has been updated to v1.4.1. Here's what's new:

  • Snow Leopard: the app launch crash bug fixed

Get the update from the Mac App Store.

Tech Notes

There's a bug in Xcode 4.6 that causes Cocoa apps compiled with it to crash on launch on Snow Leopard. It only affects projects that use ARC technology. Developers, until Apple fixes this bug I recommend that you keep using Xcode 4.5.
