Apple Updates Migration Assistant for Lion

If you still haven’t upgraded to Lion, Apple is continuing to improve how you migrate information from Leopard onto the new OS. In an update posted this afternoon, Apple cites the following changes.

This update addresses an issue with the Migration Assistant application in Mac OS X Leopard that prevents transfer of your personal data, settings, and compatible applications from a Mac running Mac OS X Leopard to a new Mac running Mac OS X Lion.

What’s the issue? The Next Web pinpoints that the updated Migration Assistant will warn users that their Rosetta based applications (designed for older generation macs PowerPC Macs) won’t be available on Lion, which culled Rosetta support in the transition to support 64-bit Intel applications. Rosetta apps, no longer available in Lion, will have to be updated (or you’ll need to find alternatives) for the apps to work. It’s a small change, but one that should help make aware that the applications you rely on may be broken.
