Review Update: Canon Pro-1 & Lion|

After a firmware update the driver appeared!
In our review of the Pro-1 yesterday, we noted that the installer warns you that it isn't compatible with Lion. A screen shot of the warning is included in the review.
As we noted, we installed anyway only to find we couldn't register the printer in the Add Printer dialog.
But after a firmware update on our early 2001 MacBook Pro, we opened the System Preferences for Print & Scan to see if a driver had become available.
To our surprise the printer was installed with its own driver. We printed a test page and then launched Photoshop to print a Yosemite image -- and had no problem.
The only glitch is that we can't get supplies information.
So while the Canon installer warns against installing on Lion, you can in fact use the Pro-1 from Lion.
