I have previously been running OSX 10.9 and Aperture 3.5 (and RAW update 5.01) with no problems on a number of mac platforms with different Aperture Libraries. I have just updated one of my mac platforms to Aperture 3.5.1 and can see no problems with pre-existing Aperture Library RAW images nor with importing Nikon NEF files from Nikon d800/d600 and editing them with the new Aperture 3.5.1
I had not noticed any of the problems with version 3.5 that this newer update apparently corrects.

Just completed updating all my mac platforms currrently running OSX 10.9 and Aperture 3.5 (with RAW update 5.01) to the newest Aperture version 3.5.1 - No problems with any pre-existing libraries or new RAW image imports to 3.5.1 using Nikon DSLR's.
For those who are still experiencing problems with Aperture 3.5 upgrades from version 3.4.5 I would suggest that it is necessary first to update your mac platform to OSX 10.9 ? I had mentioned in previous forum posts here that when Apple makes a major OSX upgrade, they often change the OSX RAW processing which is the same RAW processing that will be used by your version of Aperture. Apple can also change the RAW processing of Aperture with Aperture version updates. And Apple can change the RAW processing with Digital Camera RAW Updates as well. So clearly you want to keep your current OSX version and Aperture version and Digital Camera RAW files up to date.
Please note that currently in the App store the Aperture version 3.5.1 upgrade/update is listed as compatible with OSX 10.9 or later. Not earlier OSX versions, such as 10.8.5 or earlier.
Also note that in the tech specs for the current version of Aperture 3.5.1 the OSX requirement is also listed as OSX 10.9 or later. Hope this helps.

Aperture 3.5 *requires* OS X Mavericks. So your advice isn't really necessary - nobody can run Aperture 3.5 on OS X Mountain Lion.
I didn't come across the termperature & tint white balance issue (because I use neutral gray or faces), and I didn't have the issue with the face detection overlays (because I hadn't done face detection recently), but both of them were reported here in the forums by a few folks, so I'm glad they were addresssed.

Looks like I'll be riding the big wave this weekend. Kudos to Apple for clearing the driftwood from the surf.
I'd better set aside two days. I've yet to rinse the skeuomorphs from my iDevices.
