    I would like to know what changes have been made in the newest update. My original install has worked great in DP 4.12 so I\'m a little cautitious when it comes to updates. If I install this latest update, does it matter that I skipped the last one?

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Hi Gary,

    Congratulations on another update. One per month. They must have really good coffee at NI!

    The first four items aren\'t that important to me (not that they wouldn\'t be important to others), and I\'m on dial-up, so I might skip it, but...

    \"-updated library\"???

    Anything more specific? Any particular instruments improved?

    My gosh, any new ones??? (I hate to even ask. GPO already casts so wide a net.)

    Thanks Gary. I found the readme file after I installed the update. I guess the update info is available after you actually run the update.

    Thanks again for the quick response,

    Aaron

    Gary,

    Can we get on a mailing list for these updates? If I\'m away for a week or 2 with work, and don\'t get a chance to keep in touch with this list - I wouldn\'t know know about them.

    Well, I could check the website once in a while, but a email notification would be nice [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Hey Ned, I\'ve been using GPO with Logic 6.31, 6.32 and 6.33, OS 10.2.6. Different things have caused crashing. It was drawing hypercurves for a while, then it was, well.... anything really, clicking somewhere quickly, hitting a rewind button, editing an event in the Matrix editor.....

    I realize it could be my system but I sincerely doubt because I\'ve taken great pains to troubleshoot the rig by stripping it to the bone and building it back up again. GPO will remain stable for a while but eventually I\'ll do something that it doesn\'t like.

    The last crash unmounted one of my drives and apparently corrupted the OS because simple OS apps like DiskCopy or Acrobat crashed \"unexpectedly\" So at that point I got REALLY nervous, since OSX is supposedly uncorruptable and uncrashable.

    So now I\'ve reinstalled 10.2.6 and we\'ll see what happens. But not for a month, \'cause I\'m taking a much needed vacation from OSX.

    Do you think Panther would be better with my 1.25 G4?

    Thanks

    ...and a big thanks for the rest too. A while ago I wrote that I have never experienced any first release of a software that has been so actively supported as GPO. Still ruling!

    Esteso,
    Maybe you need Panther 10.3.2 ?
