- Improvements and feature changes:
- Improved graphics for Retina displays. Note that this requires a Mac with OS X 10.7.4 “Lion” or higher.
- Added native full screen support for Mac OS X. Note that this requires 10.9 Mavericks or higher and having the option "Displays have separate Spaces" enabled in OS X' Mission Control system preferences (this is the system's default). The keyboard shortcut for toggling full-screen mode has been changed accordingly to CTRL+CMD+F, which is the operating system’s default. Users with older OS X versions and Windows users are not affected by this change.
- It’s now possible to export selected tracks by choosing ‘Selected Tracks Only’ in the ‘Export Audio / Video’ dialogue box. The option ‘Individual Tracks’ is still available as well, but has been renamed to ‘All Individual Tracks’.
