Apple releases MacBook Pro Software Update 1.1

Apple today released MacBook Pro Software Update 1.1 which provides important bug fixes and improves stability with Motion 2 and Motion 3.

It is recommended for all 2.2/2.4GHz MacBook Pro models.

This update requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later.

MacBook Pro Software Update 1.1 is available via Sotware Update and also as a standalone installer.

  1. Just updated my 2.4Ghz MBP. Dashboard and expose feel smoother.

    I don’t know why Apple just doesn’t label this as a graphics driver update. Motion 2 is extremely heavy on OpenGL, and if this update makes it better…it’s useful system wide, since Quartz Extreme, and Core Image need OpenGL acceleration as well…and they are quite heavy on it. This is further proven by the fact that expose and dashbord work much, much smoother now than they did…um…yesterday.

  2. ^ Oh, just to add…I don’t even have Motion 2 nor 3 installed…so why did this show up in the software update if I never had the app. Once again proves that this is a graphics driver update and has very little to do with Motion 2 or 3 (if it even does)

  3. If you think your MacBook Pro is running too hot, you can always install iCyclone: this app gives you full control over your fans (Apple defaults aren’t changed, so if you remove the app everything’s back to normal…)

    It makes your MBP run a lot cooler, might be handy if you put it on your lap a lot ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  4. This is the second update in the last couple months that is specific to 2.2/2.4GHz MacBook Pro models, other then processor speed I wonder what the big differences are between those and the 2.33GHz model (which is what I own).
