  6. 03 November 2011
    Version 5.0 (Build 78934)

    Build 78934 has been released for all YearbookFusion and v5 [Mac] users.

    This release fixes several more crashes and freezes.

    It should also provide a serious performance boost on the Mac:

    We think we found the reason why FotoFusion ran more slowly on an 8- or 12-core Mac than it did on a 2-core Mac, and why the CPU would ‘grind’ for no reason.

    Your feedback on FF’s performance on a Mac would be greatly appreciated.

    Also: Crash Restore was added several updates ago.

    [If FotoFusion detects that the last run crashed, it will attempt to restore the last project worked on when you start up again].

    We now have actual usage statistics from those builds, and the results are good: a 100% success rate to date.

    Projects consistently come back and can be worked on.
