UB version of Noise Ninja is released

PictureCode, the developer of Noise Ninja has released a public beta of the Noise Ninja plug-in running natively on Intel Mac computers. It will only work with Photoshop CS3, which is currently available from Adobe as a pre-release.

The major feature of this release is native execution on Intel Mac computers, which yields a significant speedup compared to the emulated execution that was necessary with Photoshop CS2.

If you are using Photoshop CS3 on a PowerPC Mac, then you should use the PowerPC version of Noise Ninja, available here.

This is a beta release, meaning that we believe it is stable and working as intended, but we are waiting for confirmation from users.

You can use your existing Noise Ninja license to unlock the beta release. If you do not enter a license the software will run in trial mode. If you do not already own a license key for Noise Ninja, you can use the following temporary license key to unlock the release candidate:

Product: Noise Ninja 2 Pro Bundle
Expires: December 30, 2006
User name: nnbeta123006
Keycode: f2a000-04fd6e-39ff28-3e01ee-a82562
