"Significant Aperture 3 update now available"
Tue 12-Jun-12 03:03 AM by kentak


More than just a tweak.

iPhoto update also.

Run Software Update from the Apple menu to see all updates.

The new version is 3.3.

To save those of you who bought Aperture for $79 at the App Store from doing a 600MB download twice - you apparently have to do your update through the App Store as well, at least I did. I downloaded an update through my computer's Apple menu and tried to install it before I found that out...

ETA: That update is Version 3.2.4, by the way...

Very disappointed that this was just a point update and not the much anticipated Version 4. I personally don't care if it is now sharing libraries with iPhoto.
Maybe we will get V4 when ML ships next month.

This a major update with many changes, not all for the better IMO

I agree sharing libraries with iPhoto does nothing for me except, as I said on another posting, fill me with foreboding that as they become more integrated we will eventually only have one program.

One blogger I read has downplayed the 3.3 vs 4.0 version significance. It's a significant update without the need to pay for updating to a new 4.0 version--which still might be in the not-too-distant future.

The ability to share libraries provides an easy upgrade path for those wanting to move to Aperture from iPhoto, went the reasoning. I'm not really seeing the need to fear Aperture is going to become iPhotofied.

I'm thinking they'll wait until the new Mountain Lion OS is released before the next major revision of Aperture. This is probably the last update for Aperture 3 users who won't be moving on to Mountain Lion.

I wouldn't be so sure... I feel I've lost fine tuning with the "new" light/shadow tool ! Before you had the choice between the "simple" way and the more "complex" way (allowing it to spread on different areas vs relative contrast and black and white point levels)... Now the relative contrast is just added without the other cursors...

Oh well... We'll see soon enough !

Frankly who cares what the version number is but be careful what you wish for. A new version I think legally needs to be 'sold' whereas an update can be free.
Let the legal eagles comment but pretty sure a new version has to be 'sold'

Ii looked at this thread in June and ran software update from the Apple menu and the version I got was 3.2.4. In a thread posted today, a Nikonian talks about version 3.3, so I ran software update again and the only update was for RAW conversion for 2 cameras I don't have. What is the latest version of Aperture? I'm running MAX OS X 10.6.8. Thanks.

Paul

I believe the 3.3 version is for Lion (aka X.7.XX) !
