Following multiple complaints from users of Adobe’s Photoshop that the new 2013 edition of the MacBook Air was subject to serious flickering when using some of the brush tools, it appears the problem has now been addressed.
With the bug not reported with all units, Adobe had denied responsibility, pointing to a driver or GPU issue that would need to be fixed by Apple. “Apple needs to hear from customers who experience the problem, and needs details on exactly which systems have the problem,” Adobe representative Chris Cox posted on Adobe’s support forums.
The latest OS X 10.08.5 beta was released to developers on Wednesday and, according to the MacRumors website, the problem has now been solved. “Some users have previously suggested that upgrading to the developer release of OS X Mavericks solved the problem, so the fix may be a matter of Apple pushing upgraded code sooner than it planned,” according to the website.
Dubbed build 12F20, the fourth version of the next Mac operating system to be released to developers is now available for download via Apple’s Developer Page or through the software update tool in the Mac App Store.
