    Seriously? What happened to the days when Apple bragged you didn't have to restart for every little update made available?

    Compared to the core melt-down of Japanese nuclear reactors a restart doesn't appear that bad. And perhaps some fonts are loaded in memory during start up. Thus requiring a restart to load them again. The agony of it all almost renders me incapable :p

    If this fixes that scrambled PDF issue with Adobe products in 10.6.7, I have no issue with a reboot. Just hope it fixes that? :confused:

    Finally!

    I hated the fact I couldn't view my pics in TRUE full screen and hated even opening up iPhoto but after how long now? It's finally been fixed! :D

    Finally I got back the antialiased fonts on Youtube pages. I was wondering why they were gone lately.

    Pretty stupid that the App Store doesn’t have the iPhoto update yet. They should surely release simultaneously! Oh well.

    Did it fix the I'm slow as molasses and generally a horrible experience bug?

    Yes, it does do full screen now without any menus etc., but it takes a few seconds to kick in. Unfortunately if you go to Info or Edit then the stupid sidebar takes over again - why can't we get the old floating palettes back???

    ...and you still have to click on the stupid magnifying glass to get the search box to appear. Why can't the search box just be permanently be on the bottom menu instead of an extra click???

    I never saw Apple brag - maybe end users might have bragged out of ignorance but I never saw an official Apple PR blurb which boasted about it.

    Btw, the component that handles fonts is embedded right into the system and there are a tonne of different parts of the operating system that relies on it with some files locked thus there needs to be a restart to unlock these files and update what needs to be updated.

    That may seem like an overkill indeed, but 10.6.7 did broke something in font department. That opentype problem has taken quite some time to fix. Seems that it was a complex and "deep" bug to hunt down. Good if they have found the culprit now. Thumbs up.

    Full Screen?

    Hmmm...not quite sure what they have fixed in iPhoto regarding the 'Full Screen'. I have updated all of my three Macs this morning and having clicked on the 'Full Screen' icon in the bottom left of the screen, the bottom bar still remains. Question is, 1) am I doing something wrong? (if so, enlighten me please) or 2) this issue is not resolved? 3) Full screen means something different in Apple lingo :rolleyes:

    Ohhh, more than iPhoto, I wish they'd get their skates on and fix the whole host of iOS issues and especially those of Airplay with AppleTV and home sharing. A new phenomenon is that media (videos) played from my iPhone either now like to cease half way through or play again for a second time...

    EDIT/UPDATE: Full screen on iPhoto is working. I was too impatient with it. The toolbar does disappear after a few seconds. My apologies and my mistake.

    The full screen fix is regarding the latest Developer Preview of Lion, it's now a native full screen app, like all others the full screen button is now located on the top right corner and it now works.

    I don't get it. Does this mean that it doesnt't do anything to the snow leopard iphoto? The full screen is still not TRUE fullscreen?

    Full screen on Snow Leopard is not really full screen, it just fills up the current space, while on Lion it creates a new space with the app in Full screen, it's really great and smoother.

    This fixes the issue where iPhoto opens to the middle of your library instead of where you left off.

    Also seems to launch faster than before - especially after the first launch.

    Hmm...something seems more snappier but I can't pinpoint what...

    It's great that iPhoto 9.1.2 finally allows to zoom in on photo without having to go into edit mode. But this update absolutely broke smooth pixel-level scrolling with magic mouse and MacBook pro trackpad. Now it jumps by row when scrolling, and after getting used to smooth scrolling it's very distracting.
    One of the reasons I dumped Picasa and switched to iPhoto was this scrolling issue, and now iPhoto behaves the same, arrrgh!

    Come on Apple, fix this and release 9.1.3 soon.

    Unless you bought it through the App Store, in which case it is 762.1MB.

    I hope Apple will be sorting out the lack of delta updates in the near future!

    1) Click the "Full Screen" icon, then double-click on a photo to make it go full screen. The top and bottom menu bars will disappear in a few seconds - giving you a true full screen photo and nothing else - although the menus will re-appear if you move the cursor. You need to navigate using left and right arrow keys. You can still use Command-1 etc in full screen mode to do your star ratings, but Keyword Manager seems to be broken - aargh. You will also lose the full screen photo if you click on the Info or Edit buttons - so no floating palettes like iPhoto 8.
    2) It's resolved, but not as good as iPhoto 8. (I want floating palettes back).
    3) Possibly. But the iPhoto team still needs a good kick in the...!

    I've just updated to 9.1.3 via the App Store, but when I launched iPhoto it's still showing 9.1.2. Anybody having this issue as well? :confused:

    They need to fix that before they get Logic and Final Cut in the App Store. :eek:
