Their input, combined with our development efforts, makes PitStop 12 update 3 an important resource for our customers and for anybody working with PDF files."

OS X Yosemite Support
Apple recently announced its OS X 10.10 Yosemite, and PitStop 12 update 3 is officially supporting this new version. This compatibility gives users the opportunity to take advantage of the features in this new operating system.
