• Resolves pairing issues with Apple remotes
• Resolves issues with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CS3
• Resolves issues playing in Good Quality mode of DVD Player
• Addresses compatibility issues with OpenGL-based applications
• Resolves 3D animation, drop frame, or frame lock issues
• Addresses drawing issues when editing iPhoto in full screen mode
• Resolves erratic trackpad or keyboard issues with USB
• Addressees a Parental Controls issue where users are locked out at designated times by the admin user
• Improvements to the reliability of speech and braille in the VoiceOver Utility
