Powerlogix has announced the release of some beta software for Umax owners and owners of their PowerForce G4 cards. Both releases fix some bugs those users may have experienced. According to Powerlogix:
Powerlogix, the leader in Power Macintosh processor products, today announced the release of the beta version of the E100 Enabler and an update to the Altivec Enabler.
E100 Enabler pertains to Umax clones only and allows the network half of the E100/S900 high-speed ethernet/SCSI card to function correctly with the PowerLogix's G3/G4 Cache Profiler software.
The Altivec Enabler extension is required with all PowerForce G4 upgrades to take advantage of programs, such as Adobe Photoshop 5.5, that use Altivec code. The Powerlogix Altivec Enabler software requires Mac OS 8.6 or later. Mac OS 9 is recommended.
This update fixes the possible corruptions identified in earlier versions of the software. With the 1.0 enabler, the output is incorrect due to a register being corrupted. MacsBug (and other debuggers) can now access the altivec saved state for debugging purposes if Virtual Memory is off. It is recommended that anyone using the 1.0 enabler on a B&W switch over to this one.
