Whenever Apple does an update to Logic, the update renames the old version of Logic (and its associated applications) by putting the old version number at the end of the name:
- Logic Node 9.0.0.app
- Logic Pro 9.0.0.app
- Main Stage 2.0.0.app
Below each of these is the updated version without a number at the end of the name:
- Logic Node.app
- Logic Pro.app
- Main Stage.app
Apple Logic Support told me that Apple has always updated Logic this way, just in case the user had created projects with plug-ins that were not compatible with the updated versions. If that is not a problem, it is OK to simply delete the old Logic Node 9.0.0.app, Logic Pro 9.0.0.app, and Main Stage 2.0.0.app.
This scenario will occur whenever there are updates to the above applications, until Apple decides to do it differently. This method of updating does not occur with other Pro apps such as Aperture or Final Cut.
