PixelmatorBack in December, the team behind Pixelmator posted a lengthy apology on their blog after a bug in OS X 10.8.2 would sometimes cause Macs to restart or the app to crash when intensively using the popular image editor.

It appears that the issue has now been resolved with the release of OS X 10.8.3 last week. From Pixelmator's blog:

Since the release of the OS X 10.8.3 update last Thursday, we’ve been thoroughly testing Pixelmator on it. We can finally confirm that Pixelmator’s biggest problem (caused by NVIDIA graphics card drivers) is now solved! For that, we owe a tremendous thanks to the guys at Apple and NVIDIA for listening to us and probably many other developers, and then doing something about it.

Go ahead, everyone, and download the OS X 10.8.3 update to your Macs!

I stop using Adobe photoshop and everything adobe (my last suite was cs3 design premium) and now Pixelmator is my new Photoshop and to be honest it has been the best experience over Photoshop. I'm not kidding... This is my suite now: Pixelmator, iDraw, Swift Publisher and Flux 4 (every one of them available in the Mac App Store) my clients didn't know the change of software, my printshop either, and Still received works made in Photoshop to keep working on and deliver. Every app works incredibly good. Every app supports standard formats and every app can achieved what you are used to when you were a slave of a CS Expensive Nightmare.

I didn't get any crashes but I was wondering what was making my Mac restart now and then.... I was blaming a new external drive and now I know was Pixelmator! So far so good! Keep the good work guys!

great news, although my use of Pixelmator wasn't affected, waiting for the driver fix to solve this issue must have been torture for these devs!
