Apple Releases Aperture Update, Responds To Rumors
Apple today released Aperture 1.1.1, a minor release to its professional photo editing and workflow application. According to Macworld, issues addressed in the update include a white balance bug and a fix for a false "incompatible display" warning.
Perhaps more significantly, Apple also responded to a recent report by Think Secret of Apple's Aperture team getting broken up.
"The reports of Apple reducing their commitment to Aperture are totally false," Kirk Paulsen, Apple's Senior Director Pro Applications Marketing, told Macworld. "In fact, we've got more people working on Aperture right now than ever before."
Think Secret's report has come under scrutiny, with many pointing to an Apple programmer's blog stating that he has been recently been transfered to the Aperture team. Apple's statements today seem to support the notion that Apple is maintaining strong development support of Aperture, although they do not necessarily refute the notion that the original team may have been disbanded.
