I thought Leopard compatibility was one of the things we were waiting so long for. I don't plan to upgrade until all the xtras I depend on have been updated for Intel Mac anyway so hopefully a Leopard patch will come out by then.
I guess they don't sell ADC memberships in Bangalore.
Just downloaded the demo and have updated a couple of MX2004 files and am authoring in Mac OS 10.5 on a PPC - nice.....
Huh? What happened to Intel only?
I just made a simple movie with Director 11 under OS X 10.5. I published the Projector, and it runs, too. Nothing fancy, but it works. Even embedded a font that appears gloriously anti-aliased.
You say you "published"? I tried on both Mac 10.5 and Windows XP. In both cases the projector is dissabled. Are we to assume this is because its a 30 day demo?
Generally my feeling, as a 20 year user of Director, is that this is not only longest awaited upgrade of all times, but also the worst upgrade:
The "Much improved text handling" is very bad.
The Unicode support is an outrage. It transpires that there is absolutely NO support for RTL (Right to Left) languages (Arabic, Hebrew, etc.)
The interface improvements are so subtle I have yet to find them.
No speed improvements.
... and many more.
At most I would say its version 10.2 and a free upgrade to all MX 2004 users.
Jokes aside, I really think that all us loyal supporters and Director users whov'e been waiting and waiting, should put a total ban on purchasing this version.
Send out a loud and very clear message to Adobe that there's a limit to how long they can hype and con us. We deserve better. Maybe Director 12. ...Maybe.
Maybe it is the trial version that is giving you trouble. I made this with a fully registered version.
I'm still looking for the type improvements. I think Adobe can do better.
snukia in some cases you are right. But most of the years you waited for a product of Macromedia. A new start was done with a 5 years old
sourcecode with about 30 manyears to get this buggy oldtimer to work on some new OS and to add some features. As i am a longtime customer of Adobe, i think they will work hard to improve their product
line as they did the last 10 years. In my opinion D11 is a testballon,
and if we don't like/bye it, we will never see D12.
Maybe we get a stable version in one or two month with a first service release, but if Adobe would have changed their releasedate another two or three months, some guys in this forum would have killed themselves.
Last question: are you shure you really ever bought a software that was bugfree.
MX2004 had so many bugs, but we still worked with it an earned money. I personally like it more than the STATE OF THE ART Visual Studio .net
