I upgraded to WordPress 3.3.1 today. Lot’s of new features. It’s going to take some time to understand everything that’s changed. Smooth update using Fantastico Deluxe from cPanel at Canvas Dreams hosting.
I added back the set of Omnigroup applications that used to be my primary applications. OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, OmniFocus and for fun OmniWeb. I have a license for the earlier version of OmniPlan but haven’t upgraded yet. I only used it for two projects, so I don’t know if it’s worth upgrading.
I did a small test today. I deleted my startup disk and booted to the Lion Recovery Partition. I re-installed Lion over the network. I did this from a Clear 4G modem. It took almost 4 hours, but the download succeeded without having to reboot or restart my connection. Lion installed without a problem. I am re-syncing my email account and iTunes music with iCloud. So far it’s OK. I am also downloading purchased apps from the Mac App Store and that seems to be working. Next will be a selective restore from a Time Machine Disk.
The test had two purposes. One: to see if it works as advertised. It does. Two: to try and fix a nagging performance issue. Some applications get the spinning beach ball when the startup. Sometimes for 15 seconds or more for applications that should load in a couple of seconds. It seems better so far, but I have only loaded a couple of my applications and have not yet added some of the extensions and other enhancements. We’ll see.
