Mac users - Lion

Has anyone upgraded to Lion?  I waited until I saw reviews that Lightroom and PS are ok in lion with little known bugs to upgrade.


I tried LR and PS last night, and didn't feel any difference - which is a good thing!  I haven't installed all the presets, actions and plugins, but I heard they are all compatible as well.


The new Lion trackpad gesture - 2 fingers to scroll up and down like iPad, is especially awesome for lightroom Grid.  It makes scrolling so much easier on the laptop!

Java runtime? For what?


I use photoshop CS5.5 and LR3 on Lion, and haven't had any problems.  And I didn't upgrade until I checked online to make sure that others aren't having problems.  What types of problems have you been hearing?   


EDIT-


Were you referring to this? I don't know if photoshop uses java.  I haven't installed java and haven't run into any problems.  If you need it for whatever reason, it seems easy enough just to install it yourself.


==================


Java Runtime isn't installed by default


Some features in many Adobe applications require the Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE). In Mac OS 10.7, Java is no longer preinstalled but is an optional installation item.


Current Adobe installers and applications were built before these changes to Mac OS and anticipate that Java is installed. Adobe and Apple have worked together to ensure that you can install Java when you install Mac OS 10.7, or at a later time before you install Adobe applications. (When you start an Adobe application, you are prompted to install Java if it isn't already installed.) In a corporate IT environment, be sure to preinstall Java, or make sure that it can be installed through firewalls or other security software.


 If the Java Runtime isn't installed, the following issues can occur in Adobe applications: 



  • Features are missing or behave improperly

  • The software doesn't start

  • Prompts to install Java Runtime occur

  • Applications hang or quit


For instructions to install the Java Runtime, see How to install the Java Runtime (JRE) | Mac OS 10.7 Lion.
