PowerLogix, not content with being the first firm to find a work around enabling blue-&-white G3's to take G4 upgrades (see Daily News story) has announced its successful development of AltiVec enabler software.
This means full AltiVec support is available for PhotoShop 5.5 on any platform that can accept a G4 upgrade. The software is compatible with both Mac OS 8.6 and Mac OS 9, and offers great speed improvements for older Macs. AltiVec enabler software is vital for any AltiVec code, without it, running, or attempting to run AltiVec code causes serious system crashes.
The software will be bundled with all models of the PowerForce G4, which will begin shipping in the States later this month.
