Increases speed, fixes Facebook issue

Apple issued an update to Aperture late Friday, its pro-level photo-management and editing software. Version 3.4.1 is a bug-fix release, primarily addressing an installer issue in v3.4 that caused the application to quit on launch for some users due to accidentally corrupted preferences. The new version also improves the reliability of syncing photos to iOS devices via iTunes, cleans up a bug with downloading and viewing photos synced with Facebook albums, and generally improves overall stability.

The update, which is 550.5MB in size, requires 10.7.5 or higher (10.8.2 on Mountain Lion) and recommends users have at least 2GB of RAM onboard (1GB is the absolute minimum). Version 3.4, which came out 10 days ago, added support for Shared Photo Streams on OS X Mountain Lion, added a new File command to allow Aperture users to open and work with the current photo library from iPhoto, and also had general performance and stability enhancements.

Updates are available from the Mac App Store, Software Update or directly from Apple's support website.
