AppleInsider | Apple issues routine updates to iLife '11 applications

AppleInsider | Apple issues routine updates to iLife '11 applications

By Josh Ong

Published: 10:50 PM EST

Apple on Monday issued a set of updates to its suite of iLife '11 applications, including iMovie, iPhoto, GarageBand, iWeb and iDVD.

iMovie 9.0.4

Apple's update to iMovie fixes a variety of problems, including opening projects imported from iMovie for iOS; an audio adjustment issue; a performance issue for video clips with keywords and a slow launch when working with large iPhoto libraries.

The 76.2MB download requires Mac OS X 10.6.7 and is recommended for all users of iMovie '11.

iPhoto 9.1.5

The iPhoto update is also recommended for all users and weighs 220.83MB. Mac OS X 10.6.7 is required.

Fixes include: corrections to the Adjust Time and Date command; resolution of a scrolling issue with Event Titles; fixing an issue with a Classic slideshow; deleting photos from a web album using the contextual menu no longer deletes them from the library and resolution of an issue with the Revert to Original command.

GarageBand 6.0.4

GarageBand 6.0.4 fixes an issue with lesson downloads from the GarageBand Lesson Store. It also corrects issues with tempo-based effects falling out of sync and resolves problems with Magic GarageBand project files.

The update is a 53.72MB download requiring Mac OS X 10.6.7 and is recommended for all users of GarageBand '11.

iWeb 3.0.4

Apple's decision to update iWeb to version 3.0.4 came as a surprise to some, as Apple indicated in a FAQ
last month that iWeb publishing will get the ax when the MobileMe service is shuttered permanently on June 30, 2012.

IWeb has not received a major revision since Apple released iLife '09 in
January 2009. That update added new iWeb Widgets, such as iSight video and photos, a countdown timer, YouTube video and RSS feeds and integrated FTP publishing. Apple quietly bundled the older versions of iWeb and iDVD into iLife '11 when it was released last October.

The release notes for iWeb 3.0.4 do not indicate any specific changes, noting only that the update "improves overall stability and addresses a number of minor issues." The 178.57MB download is recommended for all iWeb 3 users and requires Mac OS X 10.6.4 or later.

iDVD 7.1.2

Monday's update to iDVD improves reliability of imported iPhoto '11 slideshows. fixes a problem that could prevent files from re-linking and addresses an issue that could cause iDVD to use all available CPU capacity when searching for missing files.

iDVD 7.1.2 is recommended for all iDVD 7 users. The 36.12MB download requires Mac OS X 10.6.8.

Apple
also offes iPhoto, GarageBand and iMovie individually in the Mac App Store, though it has chosen not to make iWeb and iDVD available.
