Apple Updates Aperture, Pro Applications Frameworks -- The high end of Apple's application line saw bug-fix updates last week. Aperture 1.1.2 "addresses issues related to overall reliability and performance," and is a 13.6 MB download. The more expansive Pro Application Update 2006-001 provides updates to several underlying frameworks that are used by Final Cut Studio (which includes Final Cut Pro 5.1, Motion 2.1, Soundtrack Pro 1.1, DVD Studio Pro 4.1, Compressor 2.1, and Apple Qmaster 2.1), Shake 4.1, and Final Cut Express HD 3.5 (which also includes LiveType 2.1).
