    There's a new Version Matrix Chart in the new KB. Very easy to use and understand. Just one thing I like about the new KB.

    Re: OS X Cheat Sheet for Xpress Pro 5.7 & Media Composer 2.7

    The current Version Matrix Chart for Xpress Pro only goes up to 5.8.3.  I have 5.8.4 -- is there any chance that this version will work on a G4 Powerbook (OS X 10.4.11, 1.67 MHz, ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 128 MB w/Quartz Extreme, 2 GB RAM, QT 7.5.5) with OS X 10.5.5?  Or is Tiger the highest OS AXP is compatible with?  My other option for upgrading OS seems to be a new Intel Mac and going to MC 4, an expensive proposition.  I've been holding out.

    Thanks.

    Although it's not officially in the chart, Anectdotal evidence is that 5.8.4 is fine wherever 5.8.3 will run.

    Re: OS X Cheat Sheet for Xpress Pro 5.7 & Media Composer 2.7

    Is there any anecdotal evidence that it will run on OS 10.5.5 or any version of Leopard?

    JP Edit....

    Leopard was never tested on Xpress Pro - Tiger 10.4.11 was the last officially supported OS.

    Exactlly. Lots of Anectdotal evidence that it will NOT run on anything past 10.4.7.

    I've had no problem with AXP 5.8.4 and OS X 10.4.11.  Thanks both of you.  Time to break the piggy bank.
