We can't comment on unreleased OS versions.

Of course, but from what is addressed, isn't the core graphics what is causing the problem with SD? :confused:

"We can't comment on unreleased OS versions" is all I can say.

Note that most of the previous system updates have included changes/fixes for core graphics. Although core graphics is mentioned in your list above, that does not mean that they have fixed what is causing this specific issue in this update ... we'll know soon enough however.

I also want to emphasize that just because the crash always seems to be in Core Graphics doesn't mean the underlying problem is in Core Graphics. It's just we can see a certain pattern in the crash logs which always have Core Graphics involved... but it's best to leave the actual cause of the problem (as opposed to the symptom) up to the engineers who can debug it.

Ooops, I am sorry Dave, it seems that I touched a sensitive issue without knowing.

Anyway, for all of you guys, I wish the best of the best for Christmas and a terrific new year :-)

It's not so much a sensitive issue as something that non-disclosure agreements prevent us from discussing. We take those agreements seriously, and as such we can't discuss unreleased OS versions.
