Update 9 released today to live server. Patch notes here.
No Mac specific notes. Nothing on Macs (or PC) in the Update 9 Known Issues notes either.
New version number is up from beta to version 0900.0050.7886.8022 but unclear if that is just .dat general U9 changes of any actual fixes (no fixes noted on beta) Guess we will see when the update is complete and server are up again.
4488 file updates.
UPDATE: Patched beta Mac client updated to 9 OK and was able to log in without issue. Did not have to reconfirm T&C this time.
From initial testing it appears that there have been no Mac specific fixes (issues with chat focus, disabled settings, sliders, troubleshooting etc.) in this update.
There is one new known issue concerning graphics in the revamped Bree town. See this thread for details.
I hope very much that Turbine will start addresses the known bugs and provide fixes for the next update. And implement the disabled graphics and troubleshooting options also. I appreciate it is a beta Mac client, but many of these issues have been there all throughout closed beta testing of RoR back in the summer and now through Update 8 and into 9.
Not had a chance to download the new Steam update but assume it is the same version. Perhaps anyone updating via Steam can confirm it patches OK.
