Flood of iCloud and iOS 5 updates

Continuing a day-long flood of software updates, Apple has released Aperture 3.2 and Xcode 4.2. As expected, the Aperture patch concentrates on compatibility with iCloud and iOS 5. Some other small enhancements have been made though, such as pinch-to-zoom automatically activating Zoom mode, and automatic launch in fullscreen mode if that was in use when the program was last quit. The Import window has gained an option to delete photos from iPhones and iPads after the images have been copied over.

Swiping gestures can now be used to switch between photos in the Viewer, and Microsoft Outlook can be selected as the default app for emailing. Bugfixes deal with issues in loupe magnification, using brushes, the Lift & Stamp tool, and color profiles associated with externally-edited photos. The v3.2 update is a 635.76MB download.

Crucially, Xcode 4.2 incorporates new SDKs for both OS X Lion and iOS 5. iCloud entitlements are enabled automatically, and the LLVM compiler supports C++ 11 features and the LLVM libc++ standard library. New storyboards can be used to design multiple iOS screens and define segues; Automatic Reference Counting eliminates the need to manually control retain and release, and lastly, older iOS simulators and device debugging symbols should be downloaded on demand.

Xcode 4.2 is a free download measuring 1.68GB.
