Default Any bug-fixes before v8?

Since PT8 seems to be out at AES will the bugs in 7.4 that have been around for months or even years be fixed before that or will they have to become our "friends" for another round of PT updates?

My most annoying ones that I´d like to have fixed before even introducing a single new feature:

- "Preserve fades when editing" never worked since it was invented.
- "Expand to tracks" and "match clip" do not work in a useful way.
- PT freezes when editing large region groups.
- 9073 when creating fades during playback
- Extreme sluggishness when working with referenced AAFs and MXF audio files.
- Bad memory management that leads to huge "page outs" in activity monitor that can only be freed by rebooting the computer. Happens after you open and close a couple of large sessions. (not sure if this is OS related)
- Random exception errors when importing/exporting region groups
- "Clear selected" doesn´t work propperly. (Select unused repeatedly brings up more unused clips even after having cleared them and reopening the session)
- Nudging fades using "+-" doesn´t always drag automation curves along.

Thanks for listening.

Frank.

Hear! Hear! All these fixes would be great!... 7.5 anyone? Nothing but bug fixes... I'll pay for that!

As an aside, the memory management issue DOES seem to be an OS issue as it happens with Digital Performer as well....

Interesting. I only know one application that is worse than PT in this regard: Safari.

I remember this sort of "memory leak" was a big issue back in the earlier days of OS X... It was SUPPOSED to have been fixed in 10.4, but I think not... Audio Apps use a lot more RAM than many others, so it's probably most noticeable in them....

Doesn't mean that the other very annoying things you mentioned (Preserve Fades being my PERSONAL fave...) shouldn't be fixed!

8 will show at AES but from what I've seen it's nowhere close to shipping
but given that they are going to show 8, no 7.5.
more cs updates probably
