Pro Tools 8.0.3 installers for Mac systems are here

As ericdano said in his comment, Avid has posted 8.0.3 updates for Mac OS X HD, LE and M-Powered. Mac OS X Essential and Windows versions will be coming soon.

The update contains a number of fixes but most importantly Snow Leopard support. Other things that caught my eye was:

  • DigiBase is now only stored on the system drive and not on every drive (thank you!).
  • Optimized scroll speed with trackballs and Mighty Mouse.
  • Pro Tools now takes less time to quit.

And one that leaves me a little curious is Edit/Tool Mode Keyboard Locking.

In previous versions of Pro Tools, it was easy to accidentally hit the same keyboard shortcut twice and inadvertently switch between tool types. You can now check Edit/Tool Mode Keyboard Lock in the Options menu to avoid this. When checked, this option locks the ability to change tool types (i.e. change from the normal trimmer to the scrub trimmer) via keyboard shortcuts, however tool types can still be changed via the mouse or right-clicking. When checked, you can still switch between tools (i.e. switch from the Grabber to the Trimmer) via keyboard shortcut. This option affects the following tools and edit-modes: Grid, Zoom, Trim, Grabber, and Pencil.

I don’t see myself using this, but it isn’t all abut me, so interesting addition.

There are many other fixes, for more on what’s new check out the release notes PDF.
