This list of fixes pretty much goes after the entire Aperture experience. Let's hope that Apple made this release a solid bug fixer!

Kudos to Apple for making it happen quickly. -1 for causing the need for it to happen.

The changelog does mention memory usage, so assume it does.

Anyone else having a problem installing this update? My updater doesn't even find it and the download from the site doesn't even install.

Agreed!

Nice list of fixes, including one that was bugging me (bizarre stuff happened when image had been straightened)

I have it installed.

RAM usage is hovering around 1GB right now. I would say that is an improvement. Since I was easily using 5 to 8GB before the update.

Good timing. I'm just about to install this on my Dads computer as an upgrade from iPhoto. His machine is an older 2.0 GHz iMac with only 2GB RAM. Hope this helps.

Hopefully it won't take as long to process his 30,000+ photos now.

Looks promising

Btw, A3 does quite good Slideshow... from what I've tried anyway.

This update has nothing to do with iPhoto - they are separate products with different focuses. Not to mention that Aperture is a paid program that costs 200 bucks.

Wow. There's a big difference in responsiveness and snappiness. I was considering going to back to iPhoto and CS4 but this update makes it worth it. Nicely done apple.

I rebuilt the thumbnails last night and all the previews. Took an age but now I can really see the speed increases now.

Maybe it was the 7200rpm drive I just dropped in but Aperture with 2000 RAW files in it feels as snappy as iPhoto with 2000 JPEG files.

He means, like most people would consider, that Aperture is a step up from iphoto. Guess it isn't as obvious as I thought.
