Send Article to a Friend

QuickTime 7.1.1 Released -- Apple posted a small update to QuickTime last week that is a big deal for some Adobe customers. QuickTime 7.1.1 fixes a problem that interfered with installation of Adobe Creative Suite 2 (CS2) on Intel-based Macs. It also corrects an issue with exporting Keynote presentations to iDVD and "addresses an issue with 3rd party start-up items on Intel Macs." QuickTime 7.1.1 is available via Software Update or as a 49.4 MB stand-alone download. [JLC]
