With Apple having resorted to a naming scheme around California's Yosemite National Park, this time's free update of Mac OS X named after awe inspiring El Capitan. Having stood in front of it already and seen climbers up its vertical wall, it makes you aware how big a challenge it is to get up that wall.
To find out if Liquid Notes can mount this wall, we upgraded to the official release of Mac OS X 10.11 and took it for a spin.
More stability and performance in Mac OS X El Capitan
There are a lot of neat new features tucked away under the hood of Mac OS X 10.11. But in true Apple style, it's a significant step forward once again in terms of performance and stability. And, there's a new system wide font "San Francisco" that you'll also have noticed on your iPhone or iPad when upgrading to iOS 9.
Now, what does this all mean for Liquid Notes? After some extensive testing we can confirm that while there are many new features packed into OS X 10.11, Apple have been very careful not to impact performance of any third party software. In short, Liquid Notes performs just as well on the new dance floor as it did on the old - there should be no difference at all for our customers.
With that said, is it worth the upgrade to Mac OS X El Capitan? Yes, we can thoroughly recommend it. But ultimately that decision is with you, as we can't guarantee a flux to your music production system when completing this update. And, it is a rather large update - have a look at some forums before making that decision, but don't get biased by opinions too much.
A final reminder that if you are upgrading from a version before OS X 10.10 or OS X 10.11 you have to download the latest version of Liquid Notes. There are some subtle changes Apple made on a system level, which require a different version of the license manager. This has been fixed in an update of Liquid Notes earlier this year, find it at the bottom of page Help in section "Downloads".
