Warning: 10.3.3 Update is Broken!

10.3.3 update is broken - all your documents containing direction marks - inserted by Direction Service, or by other means, will be displayed wrong.

Anyone who works with Keynote and used DirectionSerivce to fix the writing direction - DO NOT upgrade or you will not have any way to have right to left text in Keynote.

You can send email with correct direction between computers running Panther, but people using Jaguar will get your mail with left to right direction - even if you set it as right to left with the contextual menu.
