The recently released Mac OS X v10.6.7 Update software fixes a number of bugs of interest to graphics pros. However, not listed on Apple's support note on the changes are a number of random and serious Adobe CS5-specific incompatibilities.

According to Adobe blogger John Nack, Snow Leopard 10.6.5 introduced a a range of erratic problems and these were fixed with the update this week. Some of them sound like April Fool's Day jokes:

* The warning, “Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?” appears when you open Photoshop. * The startup screen reads White Rabbit, instead of Photoshop CS5, and looks different. * Tools behave as if the Shift or Option keys are pressed. * Your cursor remains the plug sign (+).

White Rabbit?!? This sounds like an Adobe CS5 code name. None of these classic bugs made Apple's change list, which points to other improvements in the graphics dept.:

- Resolves a window resizing issue with X-Plane 9 on Macs with ATI graphics - Improves brightness on external displays and projectors. - Addresses an issue with some NEC displays in which the screen may appear black when connected to a Mac Pro (Mid 2010). - Resolves an issue in which some Multiple Master (MM) fonts were missing from Mac Pro (Mid 2010), MacBook Pro (15-inch & 17-inch Mid 2010), and iMac (Mid 2010) computers. - Includes the ability to repair certain issues that may prevent hardware RAID volumes from mounting.
