A maintenance update for the powerhouse photo editing app PhotoForge2 has been released and is available for download or update now. We’ve got the full list of what’s new in our 2.0.1 preview post from a few days ago.

The new update has a bug which could effect a lot of users. GhostBird Software have issued a warning with the update. Click past the jump for more information.

GhostBird have issued this warning with the 2.0.1 update:

“This update contains a bug which may cause your previous projects to load incorrectly. Don’t despair… your projects are fine and we’ll have an update submitted with a fix very shortly. New projects are unaffected.”

Basically, if you’ve previously saved your projects in PhotoForge2 — see the sample image above — you may have problems opening them after updating the app. You may want to consider holding off until the 2.0.2 update. If you don’t save to PhotoForge2’s projects a lot, this bug won’t really effect you. It doesn’t seem to effect new projects.

I’m not sure why the update was released with this bug. I know the app was submitted for approval days ago. The bug could have somehow gotten through beta testing, although I can’t see how. (UPDATE: It’s a directory issue that is not documented by Apple. GhostBird Software have explained the issue in the comments below. =M=) Regardless, a fix is on the way. With the holiday weekend here in the U.S., don’t expect it soon, though.

If you’ve updated PhotoForge2 (or any app) and want to go back to the previous version of the app, read our post on “Downgrading Apps on your iPhone”. Works for iPad and iPod Touch as well.
