Apple updates iPhoto to 9.1, restores calendar option

Adds new letterpress card templates, fixes bugs

Just days after issuing a quick fix for a critical library bug, Apple has rolled out the first major iLife '11 upgrade with iPhoto 9.1, which restores the ability to create and order calendars, a feature that went missing on the initial release. It also fixes an issue that prevented videos downloaded from MobileMe or Flickr from importing correctly into iPhoto events, and adds some holiday-themed letterpress card options. The update addresses only the version of iPhoto that shipped with the new iLife '11 suite.

The loss of the calendar-creation option had sparked much hue and cry among iPhoto users, and it remains unclear if the omission was unintentional or not. Apple's web page for iPhoto '11 has already been updated to specifically mention creating calendars.

The update, which is recommended for all iPhoto 9 users, also addressed a video-importing bug that affected MobileMe and Flickr users. iPhoto 9 was one of the three significantly upgraded applications in the iLife '11 suite, adding new full-screen management options, new email templates, new slideshows, improved integration with Facebook and improved book printing.

The iLife '11 suite is available now for $49 as an "upgrade" to iLife '09.

    Not fixed for me

    9.1 is out, but still will not utilize original formerly working iPhoto libraries stored on a NAS. The old iPhoto didn't even stutter. Now I continue to get an error message stating "Warning The library could not be opened because the file system of the library's volume is unsupported." Come on, Apple code monkeys - No excuse, Prop 19 didn't pass - get your act t o g e t h e r . . .
