  • Deleting temp folder would not always work properly.
  • Ctrl + Z on modal dialog on a modal dialog could crash Live.
  • The display representation of the Axiom Pro’s endless encoders would not update when the knobs itself are turned.
  • The state of the tempo nudge up/down would be saved within a Live set by mistake.
  • Select on launch would not working when using the APC.
  • Locked user remote script would not be locked after re-loading the Live set.
  • On Mac OS X, switching on the APC 40 or the Remote SL after Live is already started could still not allow to use the controller until its MIDI port was closed and reopened.
  • On Mac OS X 10.6.0, using the Complex warper could crash Live.
  • Playing MIDI could crash Live when multi-core support is enabled.
  • Switching on track-solo would not work properly in exclusive mode when switching via the APC.
  • On Mac OS X 10.6.x, starting Live with a template set that contains audio clips, and with another CoreAudio client running at the same time (e.g. iTunes), would freeze Live. Also, changing sample rates in Live would not work properly.
