Premiere Pro 5.0.3 Update Released Today

A very nice holiday surprise came from adobe today in the form of the 5.0.3 updater for Premiere Pro. This update adds CUDA support for the following new hardware :
Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.3) adds support for the following graphics cards to accelerate processing using CUDA technology on the GPU:
  • Quadro 5000M (Windows only), which is for mobile (i.e., laptop) computers
  • Quadro 4000 for Mac OS (The Windows version was enabled by the Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) update.)
This update also adds a number of bug fixes as well including :
  • Improved stability of capturing on Windows.
  • Improved performance when switching between applications.
  • Improved performance for interactions with user interface for effects.
  • Improved performance of editing in long sequences containing transitions.
  • QuickTime movies containing video encoded with Animation or ProRes codecs caused long delays or hangs if the Cineform importer was installed. This is fixed.
  • Custom action-safe guides were shifting position during direct manipulation. This is fixed.
  • Double-clicking a title opened the Source Monitor panel instead of the Titler panel when the Project panel was in Icon view. This is fixed.
  • MXF files with 4:2:0 color subsampling created by a Nexio system can now be imported by the XDCAM HD importer.
  • Fixed issues regarding indexing of MPEG files, including unresponsive UI during indexing and some cases of unnecessary re-indexing of media shared across a network.
  • Dissolves were not behaving correctly when processed by CUDA when opacity keyframes were present. This is fixed.
  • The Crop effect was being rendered incorrectly when processed by CUDA when the clip was scaled to frame size. This is fixed.
  • Rendering of previews got stuck in a never-ending loop state under some circumstances. This is fixed.
  • Audio was not exported via SDI when exporting to tape. This is fixed.
  • Master clips imported into projects using Final Cut Pro XML import were stripped of their unique identifiers. This is fixed.
There have also been a number additional fixes to improve stability and overall performance, including 3rd party products
The easiest way to get the update is to let the adobe installer run and get it for you but that isn't up yet.  
, . A great release, thanks adobe we weren't expecting this !
