Apple on Thursday released Aperture 2.1.4, a maintenance update to the company’s pro photo editing and organization software. The update is free and is available for download through Software Update or via the Apple Web site.
Aperture 2.1.4 “addresses general compatibility, improves overall stability, and fixes a number of issues involving import, web publishing, and the creation and ordering of books,” according to Apple. Apple recommends that Aperture 2 users should apply this update.
Specific issues addressed in this release include a fix for a problem that prevented the “Do not import duplicates” option in the import window from working properly. A problem has been corrected that caused JPEG images to be compressed when uploading photos to MobileMe, even when the “Actual Size Images” option was selected. And a problem has been fixed that could cause book dust jackets to render incorrectly (when switching between soft and hardcover options).
More details about what’s changed in this release have been posted to Apple’s support pages.
