Adobe Releases Premiere Pro CS 5.0.2 Update, Announces AE Update Coming Soon

You want it ! This also includes an update for Adobe Media Encoder ( AME ).

There was also the hint that an AE update was soon to be out as well.  
Updated & Improved
Several improvements to RED (R3D) import and workflow. See the last section of this post for details.
QuickTime (.mov) files from JVC solid-state cameras can be imported.
Added sequence presets: Canon XF MPEG2 720p30 and Canon XF MPEG2 720p25.
Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) can export MXF files containing MPEG-2 essence items that comply with the XDCAM HD format used by such systems as Avid Unity. The standalone Adobe Media Encoder can also export files in this format.
Added support for source timecode in XDCAM HD422 files.
Added 10-bit DisplayPort support for NVIDIA Quadro cards on Windows.
Audio files in Broadcast Wave (.wav) format can be imported, and timecode in these files is read and preserved. Audio in exported OMF files can be in Broadcast Wave format.
Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) for Windows adds support for the following graphics cards to accelerate processing using CUDA technology on the GPU: GTX 470, Quadro 4000, and Quadro 5000. For a complete list of supported graphics cards, see the Premiere Pro system requirements. (The system requirements page might not be updated yet at the time that you’re reading this.) For more information about CUDA acceleration of processing and the Mercury playback engine in general, see Premiere Pro Help.

Here is a quick list of the bugs fixed

Various crashing issues fixed.
When using AIFF source audio, previews and rendered and exported audio were scrambled or jumped around.
Adobe Premiere Pro projects files were growing very large (“bloating”), causing projects to take a long time to load, and sometimes causing projects to fail to load.
The time to start Premiere Pro, load workspaces, and load a project have been decreased (improved).
Title Designer panel showed no background video.
XDCAM HD422 files generated by Convergent Design Nano Flash were imported with garbled audio.
XDCAM EX media in a project was reconformed every time the project was opened.
Four-channel audio recorded by Sony XDCAM EX camera was not being imported correctly.
GPU-accelerated export through Adobe Media Encoder didn’t work correctly on Windows.
Audio-only capture on Mac OS failed.
Time required to render a preview increased each time the sequence was rendered.
BMP and GIF files were not importing on Mac OS.
Preview files were missing when a project was reopened.
Various fixes for color shifts, gamma shifts, and incorrect color rendering for many formats and codecs.
Various fixes for Final Cut Pro XML export.
Various timecode fixes.
Various fixes for performance and stability when using still-image files.
Various fixes for performance, stability, and fidelity of CUDA-accelerated rendering using the GPU rendering pipeline in the Mercury playback engine (MPE).
Various fixes for Firewire (IEEE 1394) output.
Various fixes for audio and video being out of synch and audio playing at the wrong time.
One of the fixes for audio and video synchronization problems involves the MPEG index (.mpgindex) files created when Premiere Pro indexes imported MPEG-based media. If you re-index these files after installing the update, some problems with audio playing at the wrong time may be fixed. You can cause a file to be re-indexed by deleting the associated MPEG index files from the media cache.
RED ROCKET card support
RMD metadata sidecar file support
Support for build 30 inclduing Mysterium-X sensor and the new color science
See, told you that you want it ! :)
