The LCC 3.1 should be available tonight or tomorrow.
LCC3.1 brief summary:
- Supports both 32bit and 64bit Snow Leopard
- Backwards compatible with all LCC supported devices
Reported problem not yet addressed:
-Mac shortcut key is not yet addressed
Reported problem still under investigation:
1. mx620: strange click behavior with "menu" item
2. MX1100: Scroll Freezes on some applications
3. Cursor: Jumping cursor with World of Warcraft
It is still being investigated but something to do with Scroll Enhancer implementation in LCC.
The following workaround will impact the scrolling performance, please try and see if works for you.
- Locate Scroll Enhancer files and move to different folder or Desktop
- If it did work for you, keep it as is
- If it did not work for you, move the files back to its original location
File Name: Location:
LCC Scroll Enhancer.bundle /Library/Application Support/Logitech
LCC Scroll Enhancer Loader /Library/InputManagers
LCC Scroll Enhancer Loader.osax /Library/ScriptingAdditions
LCC 3.1 will be the first LCC version that supports Snow Leopard 32 and 64 bit.
Its targeted release date is 2 weeks or sooner.
Update subject line.

So, will this release fix the problem of the option-eject keystroke not ejecting a second optical drive? On my Mac Pro, I have to use my Kensington Expert Mouse trackball to eject a CD. While it's an astoundingly good trackball, I would still rather be able to eject using the standard Apple-defined keystroke.
This problem was reported all of the way back to 2.31 -- two years ago or more, and it still has not been fixed even in 3.0.
Here is proof that this is supposed to work according to Apple:

I'm quite surprised that many third-party manufacturers of Apple peripherals and hardware (namely HP) have had access to Snow Leopard developer builds for over a year now and right out of the box support the new 64-bit OS. Yet Logitech has a 2 week delay for getting driver support out?! Wow... how come Apple didn't work with you guys as closely as HP and other vendors? Better question -- how come you guys did not take advantage of the Apple Developer program to gain access to the betas and develop this software ahead of time?

...just want to say THANK YOU, that you provide us with release information as well as answering the other (long ago stated) questions ("No Logitech Device Found", etc.)....it's 100% better than saying nothing,
it's just a first step to get the confidence back from the mac users, that Logitech do not handle them as "second tier" customers....
just keep us informed!

Maybe this is a little late, but it would be great if you could make sure that your driver doesn't translate "right-option" into "option".
If I have my diNovo Mac keyboard plugged in without the driver, the right option key (Alt-Gr) sends "right-option", but the F-keys are unusable.
As soon as the driver is installed it starts sending "option" instead of right-option".
This is a big issue on Non-US keyboards/keymaps when running for example VMWare Fusion with Windows XP, as I am unable to type normal characters like @, \, et.c., since they need Alt-Gr. The same goes for remote desktop connections to Windows machines.
I tried to explain this issue in a support ticket several months ago, but without luck I guess, since 3.0 is just as broken.

The fact is we missed our target release date. Please don't read the following reasons as excuses.
1. I will post updates once I have a solid release date.
2. We have introuced a lot of Unifying products which implemented new RF technologies this summer. Although our engineering resource was streched but we were still confident to release LCC in time or two weeks after Snow Leopard at the time of planning.
3. In the original planning, the LCC3.1 release date was between mid Sep and early Oct.
4. Snow Leopard came out earlier, and we thought we might able to release it in two weeks time but we missed it.
5. Our engineering group is working hard to get LCC 3.1 released ASAP but it most likely won't be ready this Friday.

Forgive me if this post is a little off topic, but after the LCC for Snow Leopard is released, is there any chance that Logitech would consider releasing an LCC for Ubuntu? As much as the Mac users might want to strangle Logitech for its seeming neglegence of OSX 10.6, this is how Logitech treats Linux all the time. A little official driver support for Linux (an interface for programming all the special keys, etc) would be appreciated. As far as market share goes, Steve Ballmer himself has gone on record with a slide that suggests Linux may have market share comparable to OSX:
Also, if I may say so, Logitech makes a wonderful wireless numberpad that, for some reason or other, only seems to work well with Windows:
I see this as a missed opportunity for Logitech, especially since some of the current Apple keyboards do not have numberpads, and this product could make a great complement to those Macs. As for me, I researched this product, and decided to buy a Targus numberpad instead since the Logitech numberpad apparently does not work well with Linux either, but the Targus numberpad works excellently with Linux; none of the "special" keys on the Logitech pad like ')' , '(' , and '=', work on Linux, and its "spreadsheet" button is actually hardcoded to execute a call to Excel and only Excel. Even in Windows, there is no guarantee that the user uses Excel and not an alternative such as OpenOffice.
Again, please excuse the post if you feel that it is too off-topic, but since this is a forum wherein people are discussing a lack of support, I wanted to point out a few areas where Logitech could improve and potentially gain more customers at the same time.

If you're tired of waiting for the updated software you can get your Logitech Wave keyboard and mouse working fairly easily under SL. Simply download the latest Wave software for OS X.
Control-Click on the downloaded program (Logitech Control Center Installer) and choose Show Package Contents. Navigate to Contents/Resources and run Logitech Control Center.mpkg
This bypasses whatever problem the installer has with SL and installs it. Works fine under SL.
