If Apple are indeed going to continue with their own software they need to make a statement to that fact. No one can believe that Apple are now serious about their software, the writings on the wall and its about time people woke up to this.

Apple make hardware and their own OS to service THEIR hardware, they did make software but are obviously making an exit from this. A few have said that software companies obviously make more updates and versions as they are software companies only.. Exactly! Apple did make some fab software but its old and flaky and not current. Do you want the list?

Wake up and make provision to move libraries of data as you will be left using outdated software and in some cases hardware (Mac Pro). I love apple but enough is enough.

Apples mac apps are all in serious need of updates.

Namely, iWork, Aperture, and Logic.

People still use their Macs for professional use.

Aperture 3 was released three years ago, Apple. Three. Years. Ago.

All Aperture 4 would need to implement to clean Adobe's Lightroom clock would be to add proper built-in layers support (God knows Adobe won't cannibalize Photoshop sales by adding it to Lightroom). But instead Apple puts out yet-another point release with a few performance enhancements.

Edit: For everyone complaining about Raw support for their favorite camera, Apple publishes Camera Raw updates separately from iPhoto and Aperture updates -- which is the one thing they seem to be doing right vs. Adobe Lightroom.

Let me rephrase, when was the last time Apple released an Aperture update and a raw support update on the same day?

Now you're just reaching for an argument. :rolleyes:

When is Apple going to support delta updates for its own Apps? Having to download a 1.12GB file for 8 minor fixes to iPhoto is ridiculous.

My iPhoto update was 177mbs. Wonder why urs was 1.12gb...
