I am running Mac OS X 10.8.5.

I have Aperture 3.4.5 installed.   I originally installed version 3 from DVD. 

Is there some way I can get the update to 3.5.1 other than buying Aperture from the MacApp store?

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), Help friends with diverse Macs.

    Aperture 3.4.5 is the last compatible Aperture version for Mac OS X 10.8.5.  If you want to upgrade to Aperture 3.5.1, you will need to upgrade your Mac OS X 10.8.5 to Mavericks, Mac OS X 10.9.


    The upgrade to Mac OS X 10.9. is free, and after upgrading to 10.9 you will be able to update Aperture 3.4.5 to 3.5.1 for compatibility with IOS 7.


    Is there a reason, why you want to stay with Mac OS X 10.8.5?

    Thanks.  That makes sense of why I could find no software update to download.


    You asked:

    "Is there a reason, why you want to stay with Mac OS X 10.8.5?"


    There is one particular open source program (Hugin) that is essential to my work-flow and I was waiting to be sure that it was compatible with Mavericks. Others have confirmed that it works fine.  So I will move to Mavericks when I have a spare evening.


    In general I am cautious by nature ... I usually let the keen brave people install the latest everything.  Then when any incompatibilities have been ironed out I update to 10.x.1 knowing that my essential applications will work.

    That is very wise!
