Hi Guys is it possible to upgrage 2.14 to the latest version via the downloads page or do you need to buy version 3 first and then upgrade

Aperture 2, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

    The upgrade from Aperture 2 to Aperture 3 is not free. You need to buy Aperture 3 from the App Store.


    Before upgrading take a few precautions: Make sure you have a current backup of your Aperture library and of the Aperture application - just in case. Fix any problems with your Aperture library before upgrading, by repairing or rebuilding the library while you are still using Aperture 2, see the release notes (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2518   -  the paragraph "A note on upgrading your Aperture library" at the bottom of the document.)

    Thanks léonie for your swift reply I had a fair idea that might be the case, might hold out for the mythical Aperture 4 / X lol

    There are quite a few issues with Aperture 2 on Mavericks - the loop not working, occasional crashes. Aperture 2 has no longer been supported on MacOS X since Lion. If you will wait for Aperture 4, be sure to keep frequent backups of your Aperture library, just in case.
