Apple Pro Applications Update 2010-02 released


An Apple software update nearly sneaked by without notice yesterday. Pro Applications Update 2010-02 provides bug fixes and improvements and is recommended for users of Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Server, and Logic Studio. After the update, version numbers are listed as Final Cut Pro 7.0.3, Motion 4.0.3, Color 1.5.3, Compressor 3.5.3, and Apple QMaster 3.5.3. The Final Cut app updates include support for new cameras.

The update can be downloaded either through Software Update (where it will appear if you have one of the applications installed) or by going to the update Web page on the Apple site.

The patch notes show new features and fixes, and those are listed on the next page. Click the "Read More" link to view.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
