Hope this makes Numbers a lot quicker. Its much slower than Excel running under Rosetta right now, which boggles the mind.

I hope it does more than just make numbers run quicker. What about all of the other issues (lack of Excel features) people have been complaining about?

Apple really have been busy. Four updates in one day?

Maybe they have been actively hiring to get all this out.

Either that or they are working super hard.

I hope they all get plenty of time off soon to recover.

An update that just bumps the 3rd significant digit is not likely to contain any significant new features.

Ya can't go wrong with the new iWork-I love it!

I don't understand why people haven't heard of it outside of the Apple community (Must be too hard headed to listen to anything new in the computer world-especially anything Apple)

this is the first year i started using Pages (because my MS Word 2004 because super crashtastic and painfully slow)... it's a really great app, i probably won't go back to word...

it just seems there is some issue with start up... its not very snappy... i read somewhere that the reason is because pages is written in carbon and not cocoa... im curious why apple wrote pages in carbon and not cocoa, and why they don't translate it...

Hmm...with this update and yesterday's iLife updates, I wonder if Apple isn't just getting all their ducks in a row so that everything's ready for the Leopard release. I'm dying to find out if either of these suites take advantage of CoreAnimation under Leopard.

...or getting the apps ready for 10.4.11 which will get the OS ready for upgrade to 10.5.

I'm running Numbers on a 500Mhz G4 PowerMac and the performance in Numbers has most certainly increased.

When tabbing from one cell to another, there always used to be a second or less delay before it moved to the next field. I put it down to using such an old machine, but the new update has got rid of this delay and Numbers feels far snappier now.

Yep, definitely another indication that Leopard is going GM soon. The firmware updates give it away. We'll see Leopard go GM by Tuesday I'm sure. :)

I don't think there will be any more updates for Pages '06. ;)

Numbers '08 is less laggy and opens files more quickly and Pages '08 starts more quickly. They're good gains but obviously not spectacular. Hopefully, there will be more to come after the first of the year.

Does this fix the problem with closing one Pages document, and the whole app crashes?
It's been happening since I installed it, and it's driving me nuts!

Pages is Cocoa as far as I am aware.

It is most definitely Cocoa, otherwise the Dictionary wouldn't work with it. Or the Media browser. Or the cross-application stuff with the other two iWork '08 Applications.

Its package is also organized in the way Cocoa organizes .app packages. If it was Carbon, it wouldn't be a package, nor would it be Universal.

put Pages, Numbers, and Keynote in the iWork '08 folder. the iWork '08 folder obviously goes in the Applications folder. then check Software Update.

Exactly. Plus why would Apple bother creating an app in carbon when they have made it quite clear time and time again that Cocoa is the preferred development framework for creating Mac OS X applications that are true first class citizens.

That is nonsense.

Carbon apps can be (and should be) .app packages. They can also be universal.

So true, but isn't it maddening that that level of mis-information still exists after 6+ years of Mac OS X?

I really do hope this 2.0.2 release fixes publishing issues.

I've been just getting killed on many publishing attempts. Really annoying as well since the publishing error doesn't happen until the very end.

You know the kind where you are about to walk away thinking all is great...and then bam...sorry there was an error publishing to .mac....please try again.:mad:

Have any of you guys been having trouble with Keynote displaying pdf files incorrectly. I haven't tried the update yet but Keynote 08 would display many of my pdf files as transparent and drop many of the graphic elements.

For instance a graph in a pdf file which displays fine in preview or Acrobat reader, once moved to a keynote slide would turn transparent and the graphed line would be gone.

I have been disappointed with the entire iwork series since the original release. The package always appears to be polished on the outside, but as soon as you put the apps through more rigorous use they disappoint with bugs and quirks. Until recently Keynote seemed to be the least troublesome application however even Keynote is disappointing in 08.

Yeah it works!!!!! Believe me I **feel your pain**. I too, was having these problems but this update finally fixed it!!!

(As you can tell I am very, very, very happy; as my final recourse was the start from scratch and I would lose a lot of information).

Yea, I was very happy to see that this worked too. Now I'll certainly be keeping my blog up to date more... I didn't go down your path, but was certainly having things go stale...

Thanks for the many updates, but I still cannot open my 1.0.2 domain using iWeb 2.0.2. I don't understand why my 1.0.2 domain can not be opened with iWeb 2.0.x. I followed many suggestions but still no luck.

I wish I can open iWeb 1.0.2 and 2.0.2 same time so I can copy and paste all the contents, but this is also impossible. What can I do now? Sigh... Should I wait until iWeb 3.0 out? :(

Dream on :)

Once they have GM, it takes about two weeks for software to hit the shelves. So ó if they declare GM during the weekend, then it's a possibility. But I wouldn't hold my breath.

They're targeting "october" release, so that most probably means tuesday the 30th. For that target, they have few weeks to iron out the last bugs and hope they don't find any show-stoppers.

iWeb 2.0.2 is still not complete in my opinion. I donít know how Apple could have not thought about this, but it seems to me when making a photo slideshow, you should be able to control the amount a time a photo stays up on the screen before it goes to the next photo.

You can do just about everything else with the photos but no way to control that. Kind of ridiculous not to have that basic feature. I am disappointed. Hopefully iWeb 3 will have that feature.

Apple ought to dispense with the formality if they are not going to be more specific.

It ought to read:

Pages 1.1.1 is MO' BETTER! Put in on your Mac, ya dumb mofo!

That would just as helpful and a helluva lot funnier than this "fix stability issues and performance blah-bibbity-blah. . ."

That seems something Apple's updater should be able to deal with. Keeping track of files that have been moved around is one of HFS+'s strong points.

You'll have to pay for that though, and it'll be at least a year before it's released.

It's because the applications have been moved from where they should be on your macbook. Create a new folder called iWork '08 and put that in the application folder. then put all your iwork apps in it. QUIT MOVING STUFF AROUND!
