6.9.2 Upgrade

We have posted an upgrade to 6.9.2, see the Forum announcement.

Would you care to share with us what corrections were made to 6.9.1?

I downloaded the 6.9.2 upgrade but I'm a little hesitant to install it.

I feel a little gun shy after the upgrade from 6.8 to 6.9. The font problem was disasterous. I spent many hours trying your steps to correct the problem. (I am not on Tiger.)

The import of HTML to user tools was greatly enhanced. We do not normally share the list of bugs that were fixed, sorry! There were several, mostly minor or rare. The new Font Fixer seems to correct any font issues for the vast majority of people. Of course, no one requires you to upgrade, if you are happy with 6.9.1, stay with it.

I did try the upgrade from 6.9.1 to 6.9.2 and then used Font Fixer.

It was the same pain-in-the neck as the upgrade from 6.8 to 6.9. All my Helena fonts in my documents running Classic have a generic Geneva. They were just fine before the upgrade. I haven't looked at what happened with Yehudit and the other Accordance fonts.

I'll have to work with Font Book and try to track things down so I can get things to work with Classic, my Post-Script printer, etc.

None of the upgrades from OS 5.x through 6.8 created this problem. But the 6.9, 6.9.1, and 6.9.2 upgrades make the font problem a real pain-in-the neck on OS X 10.3.3.

It would be nice if the upgrades would just "work" like they always have in the past. I hate to waste my time troubleshooting on my computer when I need to be working on exegesis.

I hope this hasn't seemed too negative. Accordance is an excellent program. I appreciate your hard work and I love the program.

I am sorry about the problems. I wonder what Font manager you are using? It would be better to continue this discussion in private, preferably by phone, so we can learn what is causing your problem.
