Apple posts Mac Pro Firmware, Logic updates

Apple has released several updates today:

Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.5 is for mid-2010 models, and includes the following fixes:

  • Resolves an issue that prevented the firmware password prompt from being displayed
  • Resolves an issue that prevented the Boot Picker from being presented if Ethernet is connected to a network without DHCP

The company has also released a new version of its Firmware Restoration CD, which can be used to restore the firmware on the mid-2010 Mac Pros. Previous versions of the Firmware Restore CD are also available for download, for use with other Intel-based Macs.

Apple has also released Logic Pro 9.1.3 and Logic Express 9.1.3. These updates improve Hyper-Threading, which gives the ability for software to use several cores or processors at the same time. These updates require Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later.
