We also addressed several issues that were result of the major architectural changes on the Mac side in the move to Cocoa/64-bit:
- Right-click correctly selects the layer clicked on in the context menu.
- Right-click to bring up the brush picker displays the picker under the cursor on the correct monitor.
- Slow performance when using the Liquify filter has been fixed.
- An issue where menus become disabled has been fixed.
- Scrolling speed using Apple Mighty and Magic Mouse mouse wheel has been improved.
- Double-clicking the document title bar now correctly minimizes the document.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when generating font previews. Note: We continue working with Apple to address remaining issues related to fonts and font caches. For info on those issues, use the Troubleshooting Fonts in Photoshop CS5 tech doc here.
- Fixed an issue with batch processes on open documents.
- Droplets are now Intel-native to improve compatibility in 64-bit mode and to remove the requirement to run droplets using Rosetta.
- Fixed an issue where a white pixel would show up on screen after invoking certain dialogs.
Windows-specific issues of note:
- Fixed an issue running on older AMD processors that prevent Photoshop from launching. (Application failed to initialize properly (0xc000001d))
