Follow-up from a reader (thanks John) that sent notes on OS X 10.10 & WAVES plugin for Logic earlier this week:
"... We are pleased to announce that all Waves Native plugins V9 as well as the Waves License Center are now fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Click here to download the updated installer.

Please note: SoundGrid plugins and software applications are not yet supported by Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. We are working to resolve this compatibility issue as soon as possible.
