We've been testing 7.0.2 for a while at Digital Transitions and have found the claims of better stability (i.e. not crashing) to be accurate, along with a strong reduction of the quirks/oddities/bugs that remained in 7.0.1. Our testing was Mac-only but spanned several iMac, Mac Pro, and MacBookPro models running 10.7.5 and 10.8.2.
As we are primarily a medium format vendor we (Digital Transitions) have NOT tested the new Canon tethering SDK that was included in this version. But this new SDK should solve the issues with tethering Canon in 10.7.5 and 10.8.X
If you are in a production workflow we suggest, as we do for ANY mission-critical software upgrade, to upgrade only if/when you're able to spend the time to do it right:
- make a backup (super-duper or Carbon Copy Cloner)
- update your software
- test the new setup for all mission-critical tasks
If you have any problems after updating you may wish to delete the preference files and application support files of the previous version. If you still have problems you can easily roll back to your previous setup using SuperDuper/Carbon-Copy-Cloner.
We (Digital Transitions) will be evaluating 7.0.2 and consulting with our more adventurous clients on their experiences with 7.0.2 in the coming days. However, preliminary results indicate this may well be the version when we recommend our production-environment customers to switch from v6.
