    • Lion Compatibility for X-Rite Color Solutions

      Apple has announced that the new OS 10.7 Lion will no longer support software that relies on Rosetta. This directly affects X-Rite's retired i1Match, ProfileMaker and MonacoPROFILER applications. However, the current i1Profiler and ColorMunki software does not rely on Rosetta and is fully compatible with Apple OS systems from 10.5.8, 10.6 and the new 10.7 Lion.

      While we recognize there may be some workarounds such as creating a dual-boot Mac where one volume contains Lion and another runs an older version of the Mac OS, this is not ideal for most users. Therefore, X-Rite is providing our customers with upgrade paths so they can continue using X-Rite imaging solutions if they choose to upgrade to Lion.

      The below chart provides the detailed information regarding appropriate upgrade paths based on customer's original purchased solution. Look for your solution, listed alphabetically, to determine the best Lion compatible upgrade path.
