Yesterday saw Apple release updates for iPhoto, Aperture, Safari and Java, although for some reason we are unable to see this update. I’ve been trying to download these for several hours now, but my iMac is telling me there are still no updates available, which seems very strange. Although, this makes me believe this is a staggered update for certain countries.
The two biggest updates were iPhoto 9.4.3 and Aperture 3.4.4, and from the bug fixes and improvements I cannot wait to update from iPhoto 9.4.2. Included are features to help improve Mountain Lion compatibility, the ability to delete photos from Photo Stream, and the crashing issue when syncing images to Facebook has finally been rectified.
As for Aperture 3.4.4, there had been several occasions when the previous version would unexpectedly quit when uploading images to Photo Stream, as well as during imports. There was also an issue where raw images would not display correctly from the Nikon P7700. Finally, thumbnails will now display in the correct size.
You can see the full release notes for the iPhoto 9.4.3 and Aperture 3.4.4 updates HERE.
Java SE 6 has now been replaced with Java for OS X 2013-002, which is said to be more secure and reliable. There’s also Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 15, which are both rather similar updates. There’s also Safari 6.0.4 update for Lion and Mountain Lion, and Safari 5.1.9 update for Snow Leopard.
It’s clear to see that these are just minor releases just to keep us happy until the big change that is OS X 10.9, which should bring with it a host of updates for the two apps mentioned above, as well as Safari and many other features of Mac OS X.
Have you been able to download these updates yet?
