Version 4.2b4 | Release Date: 2007-05-03 | Download

Version 4.2b4:

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.
