I looked at the "About Motion" box to see what version I have. It says 5.0. I wondered if there was an update, so I started to search. 30 minutes later, I'm no closer than when I started.


The first obvious thing I did was choose Software Update from the Apple menu. It tells me that all of my software is up to date, so I decided to check further just out of curiostiy.


I found this page telling me what's new in Motion 5.0.1:



I found this page with the Motion 5.0.1 release notes:



When I go to the downloads page, all I see for Motion 5 is the Content update: 



So, what am I missing? Is there a 5.0.1? If so, where is it?


Related questions...

Is there an automatic update option for Motion? I sure can't find one. It's easy to find that option on iTunes. If there isn't one for Motion, why not?


Yes, I'm a bit frustrated at this point (sorry). Any help would be appreciated.

    Apps distributed online by MacAppStore (and M5 is exclusively avail via MAS only) don't be handled by or displayed in the Software Update.app

    Thanks, Karsten! I bought Motion 5 in June 2011, and that's the only time I've ever used the App Store, so I'd completely forgotten about that.


    Maybe it's because I've only used the App Store once, but I'm confused and disoriented trying to navigate my way through it. I finally found what I'm looking for, but now I have a lot of other questions....however, those are for the App Store community.


    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction!
