Aperture *has* to update before 10.9. New version or a patch?

    With the incompatibility of iPhoto included with Mavericks and Aperture 3.4.5, Apple release 10.9 without upgrading Aperture. So I'm wondering, what are the odds we'll see a new version of Aperture vs a patch to restore compatibility?

    I could be wrong but there are people running Mavericks here and Aperture, i.e., Aperture is running w/o any patching required.

    Aperture runs fine. What the issue is is that opening a photo library with the version of iPhoto that is bundled with Mavericks updates that library so the current version of Aperture can't open it.

    Apple has touted iPhoto/Aperture library sharing for a while. I don't see them changing that.

    Guess I was wrong. But is the new iPhoto compatible with Aperture?

    My libraries are merged and both Aperture and iPhoto works fine.

    But are you running Mavericks and the Mavericks version of iPhoto?

    Because I share the OP's concerns - Mavericks requires an upgrade to iPhoto, and when you run the upgraded version for the first time you get a warning that your library will be updated if you continue and will no longer work with Aperture.

    I find it difficult to believe that Apple will leave the shared library feature broken. I guess we'll see an update to Aperture when Mavericks is released to the public - they couldn't publically update Aperture before the iPhoto update is publically released otherwise it would have broken compatibility the other way round.

    I just checked and I'm still on iPhoto 9.4.3 with Mavericks GM build 13A598. I guess Apple must've removed the iPhoto update as it's not bundled in the installation and I can't locate it in my dev account as a separate download and it's not showing up in MAS either.

    I do hope for an update. In terms pf usability it is also a bit behind. But I'm not sure whether it has enough priority for a major update...
