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.

Pages '06 was very snappy to start up, hopefully there will be a patch to speed it up...

Numbers speed-up

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.
