Web-based portal allows passwords on documents
Apple has released a maintenance update for iWork '09, while adding several new features to iWork.com. The software update, v9.0.3, primarily focuses on improving stability and fixing several bugs. File sizes of Instant Alpha images have been reduced, while users have more control over file sizes of inserted movies.
Other improvements involve dates and durations in the Chart Data Editor in Keynote and Pages. A bug has been fixed that relates to exporting CSV from Numbers when using table categories.
iWork.com now allows users to configure password-protected shared documents. The web-based interface also supports viewer comments and simpler invitations to new viewers.
iWork 9.0.3 is available through Software Update or from Apple's support site. The download weighs in at approximately 60MB.
