Finale 2004 to ship in Jan
MakeMusic has delayed the release of . In a note to customers, MakeMusic says it continuing to work with testers to squash the last remaing bugs: "We now expect to ship Finale 2004 for OS X (including Panther support) in the month of January 2004. We cannot say for certain, of course, because each Finale upgrade is an exercise not just in development, but in invention. Thus predicting ship dates accurately is always difficult, sometimes impossible." The current version of Finale only runs on Mac OS 9; MakeMusic says the Mac OS 9 version of Finale 2004 will be released after the initial Mac OS X release.
