If you are in the same situation as me using Mac OSX Lion and hardware calibration tools like the X-Rite i1Display2 then you will have found yourself stuck since Lion removed Rosetta from its build and the X-Rite iProfiler depended on Rosetta to function on Mac OSX.
Well dont spend much time worrying that your hardware is heading to the dustbin – X-Rite have today confirmed a public beta of iProfiler for Mac OSX Lion.
This was the announcement email from X-Rite
Dear Valued i1Display customer,
X-Rite extends a sincere thank you for your continued patience as we prepare to deliver our Apple OS X Lion compatible i1Profiler D2LionEdition software for your use with either an i1Display LT or i1Display 2 device.
We have news to share to get you up and running on Lion with your X-Rite solution:
This software will now be available FREE of charge to ALL registered owners, not just to those that purchased in 2011. Please note that i1Profiler D2LionEdition is only compatible with Apple OSX 10.7.
PUBLIC BETA NOW AVAILABLE
We have been engaged in beta testing over the last several weeks and are confident we are well on our way to delivering a high quality software solution. During the beta test, however, our engineers uncovered some unforeseen issues that are affecting a very small population of our testers. We would like to take some additional time to fix these so we can deliver the professional solution you expect from X-Rite. But, we also understand that you are anxious to use your i1Display device with Lion. Therefore, we are providing a public beta version that you can download and immediately begin using with your i1Display LT or i1Display 2 device.
The link is currently not working, here is the response from X-Rite
We’ve recently posted a link to the new version of i1Profiler that supports the i1Display2 on Lion. Unfortunately, it would appear that the demand for this download is temporarily taxing our servers.
We appreciate your patience in this matter, and ask you to try the download again at a later time.
Thanks to Alistair Miller for the update, new download is available here
