There seems to be at least one capricious UI change: Previously "T" toggled the 'Metadata Tooltips' (pg 213 of the manual). Now it's Cntrl-T. At least we can 'Customize Keyboard Shortcuts' if we want the old technique.
From the support doc:
"The keyboard shortcut to show Tooltips has been changed from “T” to “Control + T” to prevent accidental activation."
I applaud that change -- and I will most certainly customize it back. It has been one of the "most-asked-for-help-solving" topics in the Aperture discussions (that is, right here) for as long as 3.x has been out (or at least seems as much -- I have not done any numerical analysis). To me at least that falls far below the cut-off for "capricious".
Thanks for the heads up.

Indeed, you and others have helped several people who've wonder "wha' happened?" when the popups show up. I (and by inference, you) find a single-key toggle convenient. When that box shows up, it's hard for people to divine what it's called so they can help themselves by looking it up. Odd, I don't see either form in the Help menu's Keyboard Shortcuts document.
Do those of us who purchased Aperture through the App Store not qualify for the update? The OS update says no update is available, the downloaded update file says to update through the App Store, and the app store says there is no update.

Unrelated to the above but related to the thread:
The change to the "t" key shortcut does not affect already-customized Command Sets ( ... it shouldn't, so that's good). If you are using a customized Command Set, you won't have to reset the "t" key shortcut (but you will have to change it if you want the newly-changed default behavior).
After installing the upgrade, on launching Aperture my Library was scanned (and upgraded?). Took less than a minute. No idea what it was doing -- but willing to guess that it was looking for on-line galleries, of which I have none.
