Aperture 3.1.2 Released—Includes Many iPhoto Import Fixes
‘tis the season…
Following closely on the Mac OS X 10.6.7 update from last night that added additional RAW camera support (among other non-Aperture related fixes, of course), today Apple released Aperture 3.1.2. Reading through the updates, the most prominent fixes are all related to importing from iPhoto—no doubt in response to the massive influx of new Aperture users following the recent price-drop of Aperture 3 to just $79. All those new iPhoto users must have been submitting some pretty good bug and crash reports :)
Check out the fixes below, and I know many users have reported these exact issues on this site. If you are so inclined to re-import to take advantage of these fixes, do let us know!
