If you use Apple's Aperture professional photo management program for OS X, then a new update is available that addresses a number of bugs with the previous release.
The update focuses around managing content from shared photo streams, including detecting faces, managing where streams are shared, and incorporating more cross-stream content management.
In addition to stream focus, the update fixes a number of problems with metadata management, resolution and use of secondary displays, and color profile management. The full list of addressed features is the following:
- Photos received via My Photo Stream or shared streams can now be added directly to other shared streams.
- Multiple e-mail addresses can now be copied and pasted in the "Shared with" field for shared streams.
- When more than five subscribers "Like" a photo in a shared stream, all their names are now displayed correctly.
- The Info panel for a shared stream now includes an Unsubscribe button.
- The status line in the toolstrip now displays the number of new photos added to a shared stream.
- Faces are now properly detected on photos imported into a library from a shared stream.
- Adjusted photos added to shared streams are now published with EXIF metadata properly preserved.
- Addresses the reliability of Shared Photo Streams when switching between iPhoto and Aperture with the same library.
- Custom keyboard shortcuts are now properly preserved when upgrading from earlier versions of Aperture.
- Double-clicking a photo in Viewer-Only mode now correctly toggles to the Browser view.
- Addresses a problem that could prevent the Viewer from displaying images with correct color after Auto White Balance and Auto Enhance are applied.
- Addresses an issue that could cause JPEGs exported with a custom ICC profile to render incorrectly.
- A dialog now displays progress when deleting large numbers of photos using the Empty Aperture Trash command.
- Fixes a problem that could cause duplicate detection on import to fail when the "Auto-Split Projects" option is enabled.
- RAW files are no longer displayed in the Import window when the "JPEG files only" option is enabled.
- Key photos made from panoramic images are now displayed at high resolution.
- Addresses a problem that could cause the Info panel in the Inspector to display the wrong metadata view.
- Fixes an issue that could prevent Microsoft Outlook from being used to e-mail photos from within Aperture.
- Improves stability when working with AVCHD video files.
- Fixes a problem with using the Zoom navigator on a second display.
- Addresses issues that could cause Web journals to export incorrectly.
- Includes stability improvements.
The update is 550.73MB in size, and requires OS X 10.7.5, or at least 10.8.2 for Mountain Lion users. It is available through Apple's Software Update service, but can also be downloaded as a standalone installer from the Apple Support Web Site.
As with any update, be sure to fully back up your system before applying it.
