Launched earlier in the week, Mac OS X 10.6.7 brought several general improvements, but it is also benefiting users of third-party apps. Photoshop developers, for example, recommend the update to address minor bugs that have been affecting company customers since Snow Leopard version 10.6.5.
Among them were defects in the rendering of the cursor and problems with the tool palette, which could behave as if the keys Shift or Option were pressed. Thanks to the cooperative work between Adobe and Apple, the bugs were finally fixed without the need for an update to Photoshop CS5.
However, thousands of owners of current MacBooks Air are complaining about problems with iTunes, which can crash the entire machine when it starts. To resolve the issue, affected users are being instructed to test some of the solutions below:
- Restart the machine normally after the crash and try to start iTunes;
- With iTunes closed, delete the iTunes Library Genius.itdb file from the ~ / Music / iTunes folder and open iTunes, closing the direct sidebar when the window appears.
For most of those affected, the steps above appear to be working.
