EFI Colorproof XF 3.0

At last week's MacExpo in London, EFI demonstrated the first Mac OS X version of its Colorproof XF server, running on the latest Intel Macs. This will be released early next year, so it was too early for us to give it a hands-on test, but now is a good point at which to revisit the Windows version, which was upgraded to version 3.0 in June. The Mac server will work the same way and will be fairly invisible in use, as the operator mainly works through the client application, which is already available on Mac OS X as well as Windows.
