Any discussion on this?
Its seems a pretty big update, does it improve stability and speed at all?

It's a x.x.1 update. Mostly to fix the iLife media browser issue, I believe.

Doesn't fix an iTunes/iDevice sync issue that was introduced when I got 3.1, however.

Nope, this doesn't seem to have fixed my backwards syncing picture issue that I've been having since 3.1. Shame, because apart from that I really enjoy AP3.

I don't see any mention of adding RAW support for recently released cameras like the Nikon D7000. Anyone know when this might drop? Just asking b/c Adobe Lightroom is already supporting this cam. In fact my workflow to get RAW to A3 is via Adobe DNG Converter. Apple needs to step it up.

I've been having issues ever since iLife 11 was installed. A3 takes minutes to open. It's absurd. I've tried repairing the library, rebuilding, and reinstallation. Nothing has worked. I hope this update has some effect. Once open, Aperture runs at its normal, fast speed. It's just the startup process that takes forever!

RAW support is at the OS level, so those updates come with OS X updates.

Nice camera, dude! There's a free viewer from the Nikon site for the D7000. No probs with my D5000 which has RAW support in the MacOS. (Not that I use RAW all that often; it's extra space, time and work for everyday use since the camera software can only do lens distortion-, D-lighting- and other corrections for jpegs.).

I use iPhoto '11 and Aperture 3.1.1; the latter takes 13 secs to fire up (see the library) the first time and 5 secs subsequently. Because this machine sometimes shared, I use Aperture for heavy lifting - the simple stuff is kept in iPhoto.

The other option, of course, is to use Adobe's DNG converter to take the D7000 files to DNG, which Aperture does read. I do this anyway, it's not difficult.
