As noted by TUAW, Apple has pushed out GarageBand, iMovie, and iPhoto updates via the Mac App Store, updating the three primary components of the iLife '11 suite. The updates have not yet made it to Software Update or Apple's downloads site for those users who installed the suite by a mechanism other than the Mac App Store, but they appear on those distribution channels in the near future.

- GarageBand 6.0.4:

This update supports general compatibility issues, and addresses overall stability and performance issues including the following:

- Fixes an issue with the GarageBand Lesson Store not completing single or multiple lesson downloads.
- Corrects issues with some tempo-based effects falling out of sync with main song tempo.
- Resolves problems with Magic GarageBand project files not opening up correctly in the GarageBand tracks view.

- iMovie 9.0.4:

This update improves overall stability and addresses a number of minor issues, including the following:

- Support for opening projects imported from iMovie for iOS.
- Fixes an issue where some audio adjustments were not preserved.
- Addresses a performance issue when using large quantities of video clips with keywords.
- Resolves issue with slow application launch when working with large iPhoto libraries.

- iPhoto 9.1.5:

This update supports general compatibility issues, and also addresses overall stability and performance. Minor issues addressed include:

- The date range of each event now updates correctly to reflect changes made to photos using the Adjust Time and Date command
- Addresses an issue that could cause the Photos view to scroll incorrectly when Event Titles are displayed
- Fixes a problem that could prevent Ken Burns animations from being applied correctly on photos in a saved Classic slideshow
- Deleting photos from a web album using the contextual menu now removes them from the album without deleting them from the library
- Addresses an issue that could prevent a crop adjustment from being removed from a photo when using the Revert to Original command

Update: GarageBand 6.0.4 (53.73 MB), iMovie 9.0.4 (76.20 MB), and iPhoto 9.1.5 (220.83 MB) are now also available via Software Update and Apple's downloads site.

Update 2: Apple has also pushed out iDVD 7.1.2 (36.12 MB) and iWeb 3.0.4 (178.57 MB) updates.

This is something Apple need to fix - and quick.

If they are pushing everything through MAS now, they need to acknowledge Apps that have been purchased as part of a new computer as these Apps will have no ties what-so-ever to the MAS.

Something within the computer (no doubt an update) will need to be downloaded and run on every piece of software and if all the boxes are ticked, then allow the MAS to think these Apps were purchase via that channel and therefore download updates via that channel.

It's simple kids. Really simple.

Honestly, the whole App Store push is seriously starting to piss me off. No update either via the App Store or Software Update...because my iLife came pre-installed. Even though the App Store recognizes it as installed too. Now i'm left hanging. Thanks a lot Apple...loving that App Store. :rolleyes:
There's something wrong on your end. Preinstalled iLife should receive updates through Software Update. Besides, there is nothing preventing you from downloading the updates directly from the Apple website.

The Mac App Store can, in some cases, identify and link to apps which were installed without the store but that are sold in the store. TextWrangler is an example.
I don't think the actually update process invoked by Software Update for iLife is different from the one used by the Mac App Store, so I think recognizing the installed apps is the issue.
I bet Apple will proceed to unify the update experience, especially with Lion being released via the store, so selecting "Software Update" from the :apple: dropdown menu will do update the system and any capable apps.

So, as someone who had these programs installed prior to the app store, am I never going to recieve updates via the app store? It seems Apple should absorb prior installed apps, much like they will with songs for iTunes Match.
