No matter how large or small a software company is, there are bound to be bugs sooner or later -- and with popular image editing software such as Pixelmator, that's exactly what happened with the latest version.
The Pixelmator Blog has posted a lengthy explanation and apology for a nasty bug creating graphical glitches for Mac users with NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards in their system.
"A month or so ago, after the most recent OS X update (10.8.2), we’ve bumped into a problem that causes certain Macs to restart when intensively using Pixelmator," the blog post explains. "Sometimes, the app would stop responding without restarting a computer, or just cause some graphical glitches."
Despite an exhaustive search for workarounds to the problem, the developers were ultimately forced to seek a solution from Apple, whose engineers are busy trying to determine a fix for the problem at the operating system level.
The bug currently affects the following NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards: GT 120, GT 320M, GT 330M, 9400M, and GT 9600.
Although a fix isn't yet available, the Pixelmator team promises to soon push out a new 2.1.4 update "with tons of quality improvements," so keep an eye on the Mac App Store for that release soon.
