    Hmm... Kirby is that 3.1.3 update or 3.2? Looks like 3.1.3.


    The link is correct though, and your orginal info is correct as well, just checked.

    Sorry about that --  -- it's what showed up when I clicked the KB link in Software Update.  I was about 2 minutes ahead of the apple barrel.

  • Kirby Krieger Level 6 Level 6 (11,550 points)



    The update requires a rebuild of your Library.  Back it up first.


    Link to image of dialog asking for confirmation to go ahead (sorry, Discussion not giving me the dialog to post images in-line):

    Wow the 3.2 update is great. It has really improved perfrormance all around. I have a relativly old 2009 13 inch macbook pro with a 2.26 c2d and 8gb of ram. I am getting what I expect out of a pro app. I have only been using 3.2  for about an hour but It is just amazingly quick. I have been using previous versions of aperture 3 for some time now and this is the best one yet. I know a lot of you out there have much better set ups then me so the app should scream on all of those new i5 and i7 machines out there
