Not enough to update in these hours and days? ;-)

Aperture: Changes in Aperture 1.5.6

The Aperture 1.5.6 Update addresses issues related to performance, improves overall stability, and supports compatibility with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Other specific issues addressed in this release include:

Resolves some minor compatibility issues with iPhoto 7.1, which organizes images by Event rather than Roll.
Addresses issues related to metadata and sort order when sharing previews with iLife Media Browser.
Improves reliability of queries based on Import Session.
Addresses reliability when recovering an Aperture Library from a Vault.
This update is recommended for all Aperture users.

I've got that 130 MB update via "Software Update" and everything seems to be fine after installation. Aperture is version 1.5.6 2J2 now (w. Tiger).

I always love Aperture updates which include the words "issues related to performance." Apertures performance is so far behind Lightroom, they really need to get their act together for version 2.0.

They say this will resolve some of the "restore from Vault" issues many are having.

We'll wait and see.
