Apple’s professional photo editor gained a small bug-fix update that sounds like a relief for many users. Aperture 3.2.1 fixes a problem where the application could crash at launch on Macs with Intel Core Duo processors and tackles two issues related to the Crop tool: switching to an incorrect orientation or resizing improperly, and rendering images when cropping while Onscreen Proofing is enabled. This version also displays location menus correctly in the Places view when “Photos” is selected in the Library Inspector. ($79.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 635.76 MB)

Aperture 3.0 or later is required to install this update.
I have a licensed copy which i bought from the Apple Store.
Any ideas, this happened with the previous upgrade and Apple recommended a reinstallation but I do not want to do this again as it screws up the libraries and is generally very disturbing.
Back in June, I reported an extremely serious bug in Aperture 3, which results in a colour shift on files imported in wide-gamut spaces, like AdobeRGB. I was happy to see in 3.2.1's release notes, that a bug which could result in an incorrect profile being applied to imported images, had been fixed. Well, either there was more than one bug, or the Apple engineers got it all wrong. The bug its still very much present and very serious. (What could be worse than altering the colours in a photographer's images, without them realising it's happening?).
Here's a discussion on Apple support. I link to a screen-grab and test file that you can download to see for yourself. http://goo.gl/xAu9c
A wide-gamut display will show the colour-shift is pretty gigantic. An ordinary display less so, although the shift is the same, but your display's limits conceal it. These colours can be printed by an inkjet.
If you have any influence Jeff, please use it on this. :
