Final Cut Pro X: Autumn’s 10.1 update
The current version of Final Cut Pro is 10.0.9, so it looks like Apple is numbering Final Cut updates in the same way as OS X. Free updates are numbered in 10.X.1, 10.X.2, 10.X.3 format, major paid updates will numbered in 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 format.
Again some really insightful thoughts by Alex on Final Cut Pro X. It’s two years after the first release of Pro X, so he could be right with a new major release this year. However Logic Pro has just been released as well and they have major releases coming for iOS, OS X, a new iPhone, and maybe a new iPad soon. We’ll see.
As I write this, I realize what Apple might be going for. Now that they are so big, their releases need to be even bigger. They switched to a yearly release schedule, to get more updates out. Now that the fall is coming Apple’s competitors step up and release major versions of their things, just to compete with the buzz and hype Apple is going to create. Kit Kat, anyone? And the only way they can compete against that, is by being even louder and bigger than the rest.
