Hi there again,

my beta version of REW runs very slow under mavericks.
It is actually impossible to work with it because the software reacts with big delay on every click or mouse movement.

On 10.8. it runs very smooth.

Is there any workaround beside of a system downgrade?

cheers

There isn't a problem with Mavericks generally, but graphical Java apps have encountered problems on some machines - mainly some of those with retina displays. The latest update to the JRE (8u20) may address that, I'll include it in the next beta release. A possible workaround in the meantime is to install the 8u20 JRE and run the REW jar file directly (the 'zipped jar files' download).

Was that running the REW jar files? (if you run the REW app it will use its built-in JRE, which is 8u5).

Other people have reported the same problem, it is a Java issue on some macs with retina displays. There have been bug reports about this to the Java development team so a fix should come in a future update to the JRE, but I don't know a schedule for that.
