Hey all

on their HP it says VERSION 8 will be compatible - NOT and 6, so I don't see your issue.

Version 8 will be out within 10 days is what I was told.

No issue at all. I came here first before upgrading because I use SF quite a lot. It had a green check mark. Not only that but a search of their website showed several announcements that SF was ready and compatible with Lion. I assumed that's how it got the check here.

But in practice it did not work at all. I wrote tech support who confirmed that it did not. And then there was an announcement that Version 8 was coming soon and would be compatible. Made me very angry actually.

I wrote the top portion of the note above and then the site changed to the X to reflect that.
