Doesn't seem to break Logic Pro 8 so far. I'm always scared of updates involving Logic.

Better SMP in FCE would be a nice update.

I wish Apple would release some kind of update that would make Final Cut Express 4 better able to handle multiple processors. For one it would certainly make "realtime" effects more "realtime" and would speed up rendering/exporting. Exporting an FCE project on my 2006 quad-core Mac Pro uses up-to 2 cores. Meanwhile a $23.32 video transcoder I bought a couple of years ago (VisualHub we'll miss ye) makes good use of all 4 cores and gets the job done a lot faster.
