Apple has rolled out an update to iPhoto, bringing the photo management software to version 9.3.1. The update fixes a couple minor bugs:
What's New in Version 9.3.1
- Addresses a problem during the migration of albums from MobileMe Gallery that may cause photos to be moved from their original events into a new event called "From MobileMe"
- Fixes an issue that in rare cases could cause iPhoto to hang when upgrading libraries
The update weighs in at 599.65 MB and can be downloaded via Software Update or via Apple's software update website.

Or maybe my computer is just getting old... :p
Edit: also, the update is not showing up for me in software update (Lion).
Click on "Time Machine"
iPhoto opens in "Time Machine" like Mail and Contacts
This allows you to retrieve images within the app, just as you can open Contacts, then "Time Machine" to restore individual contacts, etc.
Now it simply backs up your library database as before without allowing access to restore individual photo's, albums, etc. in iPhoto should you inadvertently delete them and empty iPhoto's trash. If you delete a pic, you can't restore it in iPhoto. You would have to restore your entire library database for iPhoto.
This is quite ridiculous and I do not know why Apple changed it. It may be related to iPhoto Streaming or some such feature as this changed with iPhoto 9 (this happened around a year ago, I forget which version changed this functionality). Either way, it was a huge step backward.
But this is Apple's way; take their time to get it right. Who wants them to rush it when it isn't perfect :p
Whatever happened to delta updates?
Why do Apple do this?! A 600mb update. . . .for a patch? Why not just ...youknow....PATCH it?
This is exactly the kind of management that will drive them into the ground, long term. Especially without Jobs around to sell their wares at entertaining keynotes. This years WWDC was a bit embarrassing (IMO), aside from the new macbook. If they launch a product they really should have a dedicated team that sits there and develops it full time. It is so obvious that shortly after something is released it becomes abandon ware...
