Aperture cross-grade

Apple has backpedaled on its plans to charge Aperture owners a fee to obtain the Universal Binary version of its recently introduced professional photography application. Earlier this month, the company announced that users of its professional applications, including Motion and Final Cut Pro, would have to pay $49 for the Universal Binary "cross-grade," allowing them to run the applications natively on the new Intel-based Macs. Apple is now offering a free Universal Binary upgrade to new and current owners, according to a note on its website: "A Universal version of Aperture, which will run natively on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Mac computers, will be available before the end of March 2006. New and existing owners of Aperture will be able to crossgrade to the Universal version at no additional charge via Software Update." Users of Apple's other professional applications will still to have to pay the $49 "cross-grade" fee. A report from earlier this month also says that Apple will also no longer sell individual applications within its Final Cut Pro Studio application.
