    hmm, I didn't see any performance problems before, but I'll update anyway. Hopefully there is a noticeable difference in speed

    Agreed. Still needs some salt, though.

    It's good to see Apple's new strategy for software development in action. Just as with iTunes, iMovie, iDVD, and nearly everything else, Apple's moving in stages. Release a straightforward, competent, attractive application. The release a steady stream of updates, improvements, new features. Smart.

    How smart? I own just about everything Apple's publishing these days.

    BTW -- I'm baaaaaaack!

    Good to have you healthy and with us. :D

    I notice a marked improvement in stacking and JPEG export after the update, personally.

    How many of the issues from ArsTechnica's review are fixed with this update? Any at all? (Thinking mostly the "bug" type of issues).

    Yeah, is this the BIG .0.1 that catches all the slight imperfections?

    It seems more, shall we say, snappy now?

    Nah, kidding, seems like it did under 1.0 but still smooth enough though sadly my stock 9600 with 64 MB of RAM seems to choke a bit, damn the specs on this thing are steep!

    Um, that's Microsoft's method. Well, I suppose if it worked for them, it can work for Apple too.

    When has M$ released a "straightforward, competent, attractive application."?

    i'll try it , but if it doesn't fix any of the numerous issues it has with dealing with DNG files from various cameras, then I'll still be mighty pissed at Apple

    situational ethics?

    I wonder what people would be saying if Microsoft had released 12 MB of fixes and patches less than a month after shipping a (delayed) product?

    So predictable...and so sad. I guess that software bugs are better with Koolaid.

    Anybody else experiencing install bugs related to the serial number with either this or the Soundtrack Pro 1.0.2 update? After installing the updates and trying to launch the app you get an dialogue box prompting for a serial numbr but nothing you enter works. Only fix is to dump the receipt files in the library and reinstall.

    There is a thread on the Soundtrack Pro section of Apple's discussion boards but nothing in the Aperture section.

    This is really annoying, somebody here must have experienced it. No work around as of yet.

    How did this thread become a MS Office argument?

    book quality

    I see that Aperture has an option for producing a high quality book. Has anyone seen one of these? Is it different from the books available via iPhoto? Higher resolution? (iPhoto offers 300dpi) Different papers? Other formats? I have found that I can create any format I like by creating the pages in InDesign, rastering them in PhotoShop and making the book with iPhoto.

    I'm going to venture a guess that this update doesn't do anything about Aperture's inability to fill iPhoto's shoes in terms of integration. I replaced my iPhoto library with one in Aperture, only to find that I can no longer make photo screensavers, drag into iMovie/iDVD, import directly from Mail and the many other handy little bells and whistles iPhoto has developed over the versions. sure Aperture is a Pro app, but sometimes it's nice to be able to fill both roles. hopefully we'll see this improved with future updates to Aperture or to the other apps involved.

    Everytime around Christmas, Apple unleashes a whole bunch of updates. It was the same thing last year.

    Does the corollary hold?

    "Everytime around Thanksgiving, Apple unleashes a whole bunch of crappy products. It was the same thing last year."

    Actually iPhoto is 150 dpi for the medium and large size books. The small books are 300dpi. But there is a hack out there to change it. I did, and it made a world of difference.

    My guess is that everything would be 300dpi or greater and the jpeg quality would be maximum.

    If you're going to go to that extreme, you could also just use yahoo, kodak, or any of the other online book makers, and have a larger variety of choices.

    Still not ready for the Pro world IMO. The RAW converter is lacking some basic functions (curves!) and the quality is less than desired, even unusable in some cases (underexposure).

    Some good features and nice UI. But the core of it is not there yet.
