Apple on Thursday released updates to its iLife ’09 applications, the iLife Support software those apps rely on, and a Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update, which extends raw image compatibility for applications like Aperture and iPhoto. The updates are available from the Software Update system preference and Apple’s Web site.

The Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update adds support for new camera models like the Canon EOS 500D, Canon Rebel T1i and Canon EOS Kiss Digital X3; Nikon D5000; and Olympus E-30.

iLife Support 9.0.3 contains system software resources shared by the iLife apps. The update addresses general compatibility issues, improved stability for the Media Browser and fixes other minor issues, including fixes to memory leaks in the Media Browser, display issues associated with displaying custom folders, and maintains correct image dates when importing from iPhoto to Aperture.

iDVD 7.0.4 is another general compatibility fix. IOt also corrects a problem where iDVD is unable to add a title or comment to an image in the image details list.

iMovie 8.0.3 adds support for cameras and camcorders that support the 720p AVCHD Lite standard. Deleting a beat marker no longer modifies the project duration. The video effects palette now uses the correct thumbnail for still images.

iPhoto 8.0.3 fixes issues associated with publishing to MobileMe, Facebook and Flickr. Slideshow playback has been improved, and GPS information is embedded in e-mailed photos and exported JPG files.
