Take the time to set your Edit Last Expanded Snippet hotkey in TextExpander's preferences, and you'll save time in the long run!

iPhoto ’11 9.2.1

Send Article to a Friend

Hot on the heels of the iCloud-enabled iPhoto ’11 9.2 comes iPhoto 9.2.1, which fixes a single important bug that caused iPhoto to crash if the 3ivxVideoCodec plug-in was installed. There are no other changes, but it’s well worth getting this update to avoid unexpected crashes should you ever end up with the 3ivxVideoCodec plug-in. ($14.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 357.18 MB)

Why has apple software update checker not notified me that this was available in the weekly checks...this came out in October?

I love and hate iPhoto...amazing potential and sophomoric GUI and stability.

I just checked the Software Update checker..."you are up to date".

App Store says you have an update.

This has happened too many times.

I'm not sure how the Mac App Store integration works with Apple apps, honestly, since all of mine came from DVD originally, so I get update warnings from Software Update (and the App Store app just badges itself to indicate updates are available). That said, iPhoto has, in Preferences > General, an option to check for updates on its own (at least in my DVD copy); assuming that's in the Mac App Store copy too, it should alert you to new versions on launch.
