There's no winning here. The most recent update didn't have many sexy new features, but very solid pro-workflow oriented changes to media management and XML import/export. In fact, Apple actively avoided mentioning a big list of new generators, transitions, and effects because they didn't feel they were important enough.

Complaining about where X's feature set is today is like complaining about where Premier's feature-set was 4 years ago. By that I don't mean that X is behind 4 years behind. As a growing application it's remarkably strong in some areas, and still needs work in others.

And of course now we're likely in for a bit of a stretch before X is updated again- perhaps a maintenance update in the next month or two, and then a strong 10.1.4 later this year after Yosemite is out. With Media Management pretty well nailed down, what's next? Audio? Editorial features? Color correction? Timeline organization? Will be interesting to see what they tackle next.

Only disappointed to see that GPU RED acceleration didn't make it into this update.
