Really. Are you so obtuse on purpose or do you work at it? These are nothing more than bug fixes to woefully inadequate semi-pro application. In case you missed it, Adobe Lightroom dropped a bomb today with the 5.0 Beta that has some features that CrAperture hasn't even come close to supporting. Become a shooter then try to enter the photography debate... Your lack of what shooters want is all too apparent... I would love to see a new version of Aperture but I simply got tired of the sit and wait game...

Did I say or imply otherwise?


You still haven't answered my other question.
