As I mentioned the other day, we don't have all of our plug-ins ready for Photoshop CS5 just yet ((Getting Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CS5 Extended compatibility remains our highest priority and we're still targeting the end of this month to have them available)). However, we do have Genuine Fractals 6 (both Professional and Standard Editions) completed and Photoshop CS5 compatible and it has now been posted on our Software Updates page (scroll down on the updates page to find Genuine Fractals).
One thing that I thought you might be interested in is the speed improvements we're seeing internally here with Genuine Fractals 6.0.5 running in the 64-bit Photoshop CS5 compared to running in the 32-bit Photoshop CS4.
The chart on the above tells the story, but in summary, Genuine Fractals 6.0.5 running in 64-bit Photoshop CS5 is up to 2 times faster than it is in the 32-bit version of Photoshop CS4. Your exact results may vary depending on original file size, destination file size and your computer hardware setup (RAM, processor, operating system, etc), but we're seeing anywhere from a 36% speed increase up to twice as fast.
