While Mac OS X 10.6.5 was the big software update news for the day, Apple also released a pair of other updates targeting users working with cameras shooting in RAW format and users of the company's professional live performance software, MainStage.

Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 3.4 brings compatibility for a number of cameras to iPhoto and Aperture.
This update extends RAW image format compatibility to Aperture 3 and iPhoto '09 for the following cameras:

- Canon EOS 60D
- Canon PowerShot S95

- Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5
- Sony DSLR-A290
- Sony DSLR-A560
- Sony DSLR-A580
- Sony SLT-A33
- Sony SLT-A55
The update weighs in at 6 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later.

MainStage 2.1.2 offers several compatibility improvements and bug fixes for Apple's professional live performance software.
Issues addressed in MainStage 2.1.2 include:

- Improved compatibility and stability with MainStage 1.x documents
- Better handling of Pitchbend and Sustain events
- Performance and stability fixes in Playback
Additional details are available in the release notes accompanying the update.

MainStage 2.1.2 weighs in at 211.70 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later for 32-bit mode and Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later for 64-bit mode.

Fascinating. When I download the Raw Update and try to install it, it tells me that "a newer version" is already installed on my system.

No RAW for me, either, but MainStage showed. I installed the OS first, rebooted, then did MS.

And I just discovered Microsoft had an Office 2008 update.

Mac OS X 10.6.5 updated RAW support, so is this update for users of Leopard? I don't see it in Software Update and I'm still on 10.6.4.

Same here, and software update's not picking it up either.

I'd like to wade in here

The update weighs in at 6 MB

MainStage 2.1.2 weighs in at 211.70 MB

Did I mention that updates are ones and zeros and have no actual weight. MB refers to the number of ones and zeros in groups of eight to a byte.

Numbers don't actually weigh anything, so you probably shouldn't write this same trite phrase every time you want to mention how big a file is.

I'm just saying, that's all.

Jerks... where is the D7000 love? :mad:


Really hope they get on it soon, as Aperture (an App I use heavily for photo) is worthless now that I got my D7000.

Adobe got on it with Camera Raw 6.3, let's see how quickly Apple can follow (it's been a while since Adobe reacted already).
