Firmware, X11, Camera RAW

Apple today released several firmware updates for its Intel-based Macs to address several Boot Camp, startup, and wake-from-sleep issues. The company posted Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.1, iMac EFI Firmware Update 1.1, MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.2, MacBook EFI Firmware Update 1.0, and Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.1. Apple also posted X11 Update 2006 1.1.3, which addresses several issues in the X11 for Mac OS X package, enabling it to better handle GLX stereo visuals and offscreen rendering to GLX Pbuffers and Pixmaps. Apple says that to take advantage of stereo visuals users must enter "$ defaults write com.apple.x11 enable_stereo -bool true" at the command line. The X11 update also addresses font issues present in X11 1.1.2, and is recommended for all users.

Finally, the company has updated Digital Camera RAW Support Update 1.0.1 (PPC-only), which improves RAW file format compatibility for some digital SLR cameras, including the Canon Digital Rebel XTi / 400D / Kiss X Digital, Nikon D80, and Pentax *ist DS. It also addresses handling of large Canon RAW files (.CRW), DNG compatibility on Intel-based Macs, and an issue where lines sometimes appeared in images exported from Aperture.
