Enfocus PitStop 12.1 supports OS X Mavericks

Press release from the issuing company

Ghent, Belgium - Enfocus today releases PitStop Pro and PitStop Server version 12.1, providing full compatibility with Apple's recently released OS X 10.9, also known as Mavericks. PitStop 12.1 is available immediately, and is free to all current PitStop 12 customers.

PitStop 12.1 - full compatibility with latest operating systems

PitStop-based applications are the industry standard for PDF preflighting and editing. PitStop is increasingly referred to as the "pocket knife" software, because it is the one solution that can correct typographic errors, change color spaces, and fix hundreds of other PDF problems, all within one application. The release of PitStop 12.1 builds on the software's powerful flexibility by ensuring compatibility with the latest Apple and Microsoft operating systems. 

Fabian Prudhomme, Vice President of Enfocus, says that ensuring PitStop's compatibility with Mavericks was an important priority for the Enfocus development team. He says, "The Enfocus policy is to wait until a full version of an operating system is released before we ensure compatibility. This allows for last-minute changes, such as those Apple undertook before releasing Mavericks. However, because Mavericks is free, we knew there would be immediate demand by the early adopters who started using Mavericks before Apple made important post-release changes. We therefore focused on expediting the coding, testing, and availability of this Mavericks-compatible release."

In addition to being compatible with Mavericks, PitStop 12.1 is also compatible with Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

PitStop Benefits, Including Breakthrough Image Editing and Missing Font Replacement, Continue with New Release

Users of PitStop 12.1 can take advantage of all the powerful "pocket knife" features the new PitStop 12+ family offers. These features let users manipulate everything in a PDF, without having to open a new application. One of the most talked-about breakthroughs is the ability of PitStop users to access the Monotype Baseline™ platform, a new cloud-based service solution that solves the challenge of missing fonts in PDF files.
