Windows update improves calendar syncing
Apple today posted updates to improve the calendar-syncing experience for Windows Outlook users of the company's MobileMe service, as well as expand the ability of iPhoto '11 and Aperture v3 to recognize RAW files from recent digital cameras. The Windows Control Panel for MobileMe v1.6.4 was originally posted in late October and does not appear to list any differences with that version, but the file itself has grown from 5.88MB in its October iteration to 6.2MB today.
The MobileMe Control Panel for Windows update is described as fixing issues and improving reliability for the new MobileMe calendar in Outlook. The update requires Windows XP or higher, Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007 or 2010 (32-bit) for calendar sync, iTunes 9.2 or later and a MobileMe account.
The Digital Camera RAW File Compatibility Update v3.5 is for Macs and adds new camera models and their RAW file types to iPhoto '11 and Aperture v3. The cameras added are the Canon PowerShot G12, Leica D-Lux 5, Leica V-Lux 2, Nikon D7000, Nikon CoolPix P7000, and Panasonic's Lumix models DMC-GF2 and DMC-GH2. The RAW update weighs in at 6.3MB and requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or 10.6.5 or higher.
