I was very concerned about going from v6 to v7 right now with all of the discussed problems. But I decided that I really wanted to see if the image rendering was going to be that much better "as advertised". So I upgraded with the trial version but I did install over my v6.
No crashes for a few days now, everything seems to be OK. And I must say that with my files from Leaf and Canon and scanned tif's are just superb. Every time I open a file, I am almost exclaiming WOW out loud. I will have to open some of my Phase One files and take a look.
I am no pixel peeper, I am just looking at files I know pretty well across different softwares and I can only say that I am very impressed with v7.
By the way I am on a Mac Pro 2.8 quad with 16 gb Ram and OS 10.7.5.
Just thought I would say so.
So far so good anyway. Thanks!
