Apple issues security, raw, and MainStage updates

Along with yesterday's release of OS X 10.6.5, Apple issued a few other updates for OS X 10.5, MainStage, and a digital raw compatibility update.

Along with yesterday's release of OS X 10.6.5, Apple issued a few other updates for currently supported software. These include a security update for OS X 10.5 "Leopard," an update to the MainStage music production application, and a digital raw compatibility update.

Security Update 2010-007 "Leopard Client" (240.74MB)

This update is a patch for OS X 10.5, which incorporates the same security updates that were addressed in the OS X 10.6.5 update. Apple's description of the update is the standard one that it "improves security," but as we described in a recent article on buffer overflows, these updates can be important.

Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 3.4 (6MB)

I have not understood why each make and model of camera needs its own unique raw format version, but c'est la vie, and we will be seeing regular updates like this to ensure full compatibility for the latest cameras. This latest update extends raw support in iPhoto '09 and Aperture 3 (no mention of iPhoto '11) to the following models:

  1. Canon EOS 60D
  2. Canon PowerShot S95
  3. Hasselblad H4D-40
  4. Nikon D3100
  5. Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5
  6. Sony DSLR-A290
  7. Sony DSLR-A560
  8. Sony DSLR-A580
  9. Sony SLT-A33
  10. Sony SLT-A55

MainStage 2.1.2 (211.70MB)

The update to MainStage fixes some issues with pitch-bend and sustain events during performances along with other stability improvements during playback, and improves the handling of MainStage 1.x files.
