Hi all-

OmniGraffle 4.2 beta 4 has been released, with a number of bug fixes, a significant change to how the autosave backup information is handled, and a somewhat dire warning concerning possible kernel panics.

Don't Panic!
A very small number of users have been reporting kernel panics on their Intel-based Macs in Mac OS X 10.4.9 when saving files with the OmniGraffle 4.2 beta releases. We are investigating the issue and of course would very much like to fix it if it's a problem in OmniGraffle. Therefore, it's recommended that if stability is absolutely crucial, you should run OmniGraffle 4.1.2, available at our Download Page <>. However, if you are a brave soul who would like to hazard a kernel panic, we'd also very much like to get your feedback, so that we can look at the data as well as pass it along to Apple.

A new autosave routine is in place that takes advantage of Mac OS X 10.4. This results in a cleaner backup operation and also creates autosave backup information for new documents that have not been saved yet.
Two new UML line endings have been added.
The release disk image now adds a shortcut to the Applications folder.

Bug Fixes
The Style: Summary Inspector now updates more dynamically when text attributes have been changed.
Fixed a rendering issue with strokes on tables at certain zoom levels.
Edited Stone Create LinkBack object dimensions are now maintained.
Finally figured out why note help tips weren't sometimes displaying.
Groups in Visio files were importing incorrectly. Now they are. Magic.
Orthogonal lines are now saving their positions.
Using the mouse to remove table columns or rows no longer permenently destroys the data in those cells.
Deleting a canvas from the status bar reflects properly in the utilities drawer.
Fixed erratic CPU usage while the backup dialog was showing.
Fixed a regression where one couldn't tab between table cells or individual graphics.
Addressed a regression where auto-resizing table cells grew in the wrong direction when line returns were added.

Fixed a crash when exporting OmniGraffle files to extremely large and high resolution raster image formats.
Fixed a crash involving OmniGraffle's shadow cache.
Addressed a crash when importing .dot files with bad syntax.
The changes made to OmniGraffle's autosave behavior has fixed a crash when backing up unsaved files.

As ever, release notes are available (although it reads the same as above, and the download location is at our OmniGraffle beta page.
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
