My premiere upgraded to 8.4.5-20113 today. Is there anything new in this release?

The only change in 8.4.5 was related to supporting certain Movie Store content.

10.6.2 includes some bug fixes, including a fix for a rare software update issue that caused us to pause the 10.6 rollout (which is why some people got 10.6 awhile ago and others did not).

Speaking of 10.6, the more user visible changes that debuted in 10.6.0 are:
  • Improved content download system (faster and more robust)
  • New audio output capabilities diagnostic tool (browser interface tool in Settings->Audio->Show audio capabilities and status)
  • New option to prefer alphabetized cover ordering on the OSD covers place
  • Improved performance for systems with a large number of downloaded/cataloged movies
  • Kaleidescape scripts now properly support movies containing multiple qualities

Just because I'm a nerd, do you have any info on why one version of one movie required a software update to play correctly? I'm just so damn curious.

It's a very low-level problem that only affects a small number of SD titles. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to explain but the end result is that these titles can exhibit tearing and stuttering video during playback of specific sections of the movie.

However, the fix for this issue is not included in kOS 10.6.3. That particular bullet point was included in the release notes that were sent out by Engineering by mistake. The fix was deemed too risky to include in a small patch release and so was pulled from the 10.6.3 release in order to allow more time for the Engineering team to fully understand the problem and regression test the playback engines.
