Adds new cameras, quashes bugs

Apple today updated both their digital camera RAW compatibility for Leopard and Snow Leopard, as well as ProKit, the general updater for the company's "pro-class" software. ProKit has now been updated to version 7.0 for Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later, and makes improvements along with fixing leaks and issues, including a bug in AppKit itself. The Digital RAW Compatibility Update is numbered as v3.7, and adds support for five new digital cameras to Aperture 3 and iPhoto '11.

The RAW compatibility update adds support for the Fujifilm FinePix X100, the Nikon D5100, the Samsung GX-1S and Olmpus' E-PL2 and XZ-1 cameras. It is available for Leopard users running 10.5.8, and Snow Leopard users running 10.6.6 or later, and is 6.62MB in size.

The ProKit update focuses on minor issues, and improves support for PopOver style tooltips and font smoothing, fixes leaks and improves stability with the color picker and timecode interface in Final Cut Pro and Motion. It also fixes an issue with the scrubber appearance in Logic (Express and Pro), fixes a cosmetic issue with an unwanted gap between a menu and submenu, and addresses AppKit-related crashes in Motion. The update also improves compatibility when importing assets from older versions of Soundtrack Pro.

The ProKit update is recommended for all users of Apple's pro apps, including Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Motion, DVD Studio Pro, Aperture, Final Cut Express, Logic (Pro and Express), MainStage and iAd Producer. It requires OS X 10.6.6 or later and weighs in at 15.7MB. Both are available for affected users through Software Update (sizes may vary slightly depending on computer model) or by visiting Apple's Support Downloads page.
