    I case the title doesn't say it all I am, and others are too I would assume, curious to know what things we can expect to work and not to work, would we upgrade to Lion. So, those of you who have went ahead and upgraded, are there anything you've found not working that worked in Snow Leopard and is there anything you thought would not work that actually works? I'll try to keep an organized list of whatever compatibility issues you come up with.

    Things I'm thinking of at this moment are:
    *I remember there being problems with dropbox in the previews, has it been fixed?
    *Logitech drivers and 'control centre' (is it called that?). When SL was released there were a slight delay before logitech made it compatible...

    I've seen a couple of lists with compatible and incompatible software for the previews but none for the real release/GM so I thought I could just as well start one.
    [EDIT] Apparently someone did think of making a list, although on another site.

    Things that work:
    • Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Bridge
    • Dropbox
    • Handrbrake
    • Gmail Notifr
    • Drivers for HP Photosmart Premium e-All-In-One Printer
    • Hyperdock 1.1.1.
    • Logitech - drivers and control centre
    • Parallels 6 (According to Parallels)
    • VMWare

    Things that DOES NOT work:
    • Adium 1.3.x
    • Chrome + gestures & full screen
    • Coolbook
    • Eye2
    • exFAT
    • "firewire audio interface"
    • InsomniaX
    • Logo Creator V5
    • Mac the Ripper
    • Parallels 5 and older (According to Parallels)
    • Quicken 2007
    • Silverfast AI Professional
    • SRS iWOW plugin for iTunes
    • Tunnelblick
    • (Ultra)VNC
    • USB-Ethernet adapter (Moschip MCS7830)
    • Vuze
    • Weather widget

    Mixed reports:
    • Adium 1.4.2
    • Fans

    Other (Lesser) Issues:
    • Safari won't download to exFAT

    Thing we'd like to know if they work:
    • Extra Suites

    Firefox is not loading all images for some reason. Safari seems to be fine.

    My Microsoft Mouse is working backwards, have to scroll down to go up, and up to go down. I am hooked up to a monitor.

    Grab the latest from the Dropbox forums:

    Go to Sys Prefs -> Mouse -> Point & Click -> Uncheck Scroll Direction Natural.

    People connecting via VNC will have a hard time due to a VNC login/loginscreen bug that's pretty nasty

    That is the new "natural scrolling". You can either get used to it if you like it or turn it off in system prefs. It is designed so that you are moving the page and not the scroll bar. So you drag the page up and the page moves up. Like scrolling on a touch screen.

    I've been running vmware just fine in lion, I don't suspect we will see too many app compatibility issues this release from responsible developers. They've had plenty of time to prepare.

    2 things I noticed immediately and which annoy the hell out of me.

    1. Navigation gestures don't work in Chrome, anyone knows how to get them back?

    2. Fullscreen mode doesn't seem to work properly in Chrome, could anyone kindly tell me how to get back to 'normal' mode without actually quitting the app?

    Thanks!

    Tunnelblick is not working correctly. After connecting to a VPN server, the connection will drop after a few seconds.

    I'm using the chrome beta and the two finger swipe to go back/forward pages does not work, also when in fullscreen mode the blue icon to exit full screen mode that should be in the menu bar is not there. To exit fullscreen mode you must quit the app.

    Which applications and what version did you test them on? All that I tested work on the GM version.

    Hey kenny, I'm having the same problem with Chrome. I clicked into full screen mode and now there is no way to get out of it. I hope google fixes this and makes it so that the tabs and omnibar are in the picture rather than going to the top and waiting for them to appear. I also hope that it gets its own space since when you go into fullscreen on chrome, it just covers the desktop.

    Can you run it in 32-bit mode? I read Cisco clients had trouble in 64-bit and had to be run in 32-bit. If I remember correctly.

    Apple Remote Desktop has worked, try updating it, connect.apple.com
    Apple Remote Desktop 3.5 build 350A34
    Apple Remote Desktop 3.5 is required for compatibility with Mac OS X Lion.

    Chrome is borked. Won't be updating any of my machines until it's fixed. Safari is not an option.

    I've managed to get a code for a free copy as I only purchased my MBP a few weeks ago but if Lion breaks two finger back/forward in Chrome, I'm going to hold off. That AND back to front scrolling is liable to make me unhappy!

    I've got an odd one. Can't get Safari to download/save a file to an exFAT partition which I'm using to share files with Windows. I can copy from the Finder, Speed Download, whatever and it works fine.

    Just won't work with Safari.
