As of 04/24/20: 10.15.4 - bug identified in macOS, problem when copying large files. Avoid updating or rollback.
On Universal Media Engine - clarified: it's a choice on ingestion / use for now. May have to choose QuickTime depending on your situation.

Also see:

On Backwards Compatibility - clarified: if you have a Project *entirely done with linked media*, working with a Project in older and newer versions of Media Composer may not work.

Emphasized by @avidmarianna: read the README and WHAT'S NEW docs.
On the macOS 10.15.4 bug - clarified:

If you've upgraded macOS to 10.15.4, there is a known issue with local attached RAID storage. System will hang when running Media Composer or copying large files. Doesn't happen with earlier versions of macOS.
On #collaboration by handing off projects between editors using different versions of Avid Media Composer: expect problems.
On Universal Media Engine (UME) and Avid Media Access (AMA) - clarified:

UME is not a replacement for AMA.

Again, the choice is between UME vs. QuickTime, which will differ from workflow-to-workflow.
On Transcoding versus Linking Footage - clarified:

Still the best way to work in Avid, transcode everything for max stability and performance. Which means, budget project time for transcoding.
That's all for today! Thanks for reading. Who knows what tomorrow may bring? 🤔
