BTW. We are currently at 151 days. The longest between FCPX updates so far.
There's an OS-update (=Yosemite) in the pipeline AND an FCPX-update.
I'm too lazy to check it myself.... how was it in the past? Someone should stack the two timelines over each other ...
Media-coverage is all about 'cosmetics' of the new OS, but I wouldn't be surprised, if major changes will happen 'under the hood' of Yosemite => which probably ask for a major overhaul in complex apps such as FCPX.
What I suspect is that we will only see FCP X updates post winter 2014, after Yosemite is 90 days old and considered mature in technology age terms...
Why would Apple HQ support an obsolete, broken operating system such as Mavericks? Yosemite is there to fix the faults in Mavericks, so it would be economic insanity to upadate for Mavericks any applications when in 90 days time you have a new operating system. It would be better to spend the next 90 days debugging FCP X 11 for Yoesmite, and let FCP X 10.1.1 die a technological natural death!!
What I'm suspecting, as many are, is a major update on Thursday. To tie in with Ripple Training's round table event.
Something else I'm wondering though - At what point does FCPX, a native Apple package, adopt the new Yosemete UI style? I was looking at the glossy buttons last night and wondering this...
No, 07.50am here, clear headed, I am only calling it as I see it, you introduce something new for 1 of 2 reasons, it is better than what went before, or 2nd it solves problems that would take too long to fix in version 1.
There is no reason to kill Mavericks less than 600 days from launch, Mavericks is 10.9.
There will be compatibility issues with hardware once Yosemite is launched.
Tom your reasoning is flawed, Apple should have released FCP after 7 as 8...but no it jumped two numbers no 8, no 9, then wow...FCP X 10.0.0.....
How can you sit there and expect me to understand anything you say, when the history within FCP defies your statement???
It is very reasonable to assume that the next could be 10.1.2 or 10.2 or 11...All are valid given how Apple has worked in the past.
