Keynote update better handles large documents

Apple on late on Thursday released Keynote 4.0.3, an update to their presentation software that is bundled as part of iWork ‘08. The update is available for download either through the Software Update system preference or directly from Apple’s Web site.

Keynote incorporates text effects and transitions, graphical animations, alpha-channel support, voice-over recording, and a variety of custom-designed themes to help you build a quality presentation. In fact, it’s what Apple CEO Steve Jobs uses for his Macworld Expo keynote presentations.

The 4.0.3 release “addresses performance and stability issues when working with large documents,” according to Apple’s release notes.

Users must have Keynote 4.0.2 installed in order to use this update.
