Mac OS X 10.4 build 8A414 surfaces - Page 4

post #121 of 128
Another thing I'd like to say concerns Adobe and CS2.

Many Photoshop users, myself included, have petitioned Adobe to move the memory model to 42 bits or more. As a beta tester for many years, I've found that Adobe is usually responsive to our suggestions. But not this time.

In recent years, Adobe has been hesitant to release a major upgrade to any of their programs that would benefit one group of users over another, e.g. Mac vs. Wintel.

As going to a higher memory model would have only benefited Mac users, Adobe was understandably reluctant to do so.

They don't want to incur the wrath of Apple or MS as taking sides.

But while I'm not allowed to tell you anything specific, I can say to look at the release dates of Tiger, Windows 64, and CS 2, and see if that will shake any interesting ideas from the thinking tree.

There will be some joy and disappointment.

I can see an announcement at NAB, but not a release.

Remember that the developers at the Dev convention will already have an actual final release candidate, if not a GM itself (a few will), so an actual earlier release doesn't have any effect on them at the show. Also, at the sessions, Apple will be using final versions (if it is ready).

The only difference for most developers is that it will be packaged.

With my Photoshop testing, the last release I receive is essentially the same as the released version.

Well, now that Insider has declared that there is a GM with bugs, we'll see.

Sounds like you're hedging your bets by saying that the only way apple could release it this early would be by not properly debuging it.

The GM always has bugs, thousands of them.

I know that. But this is the first time that I've seen a report that baldly states it. And you're stating it as though it's different, but the GM is the release.

I'm not hedging my bets. I still don't think it's going to be announced today.

Anyway, it's now 12:26 p.m. and it's not here.

I wonder if they'll release the version with or without the debugging symbols?

I wonder if this might be a clue to Tigers soon release.

Usually Apple sends out an ADC mailing every month to those that are either select, premier or student ADC members. These people usually get new OS'es when they are released as well.

As this page lists:

http://developer.apple.com/membership/mailing.html

There was mailings for January on the 23rd of December, for February on the 31st of January and for Mach on the 22nd of February.

But there are no mailings in Mach for April at all... This seems strange as. in my experience, the mailings are usually sent out at the end of the month. Maybe they want to wait with the april mailing to include Tiger in it ?

Just a thought...
