Apple issues quartet of iLife '08 updates

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Apple on Tuesday afternoon released four patches for its iLife '08 creative suite that touch on iMovie, iPhoto, iWeb, and the supporting infrastructure.

iLife Support 8.3

Apple's most universal of the new updates, iLife Support 8.3 (10MB) is said to improve the stability of the framework that underpins iLife '08 as well as address a handful of other, smaller issues.

This update, along with the others released on Tuesday, requires either Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11 or any version of Mac OS X Leopard, and also needs QuickTime 7.5.

iMovie 7.1.4

Apple's consumer video editor has been updated to version 7.1.4 (38MB).

The fix addresses unspecified compatibility problems as well as stability and other fixes.

iPhoto 7.1.4

The only update in the collection to add more than just fixes, iPhoto 7.1.4 (74MB) adds a new set of themes for both holiday greeting cards and postcards for those who use them with Apple's Kodak-supported printing service.

Compatibility, stability, and other fixes are described as part of the release.

iWeb 2.0.4

The final update of the collection, iWeb 2.0.4 (35MB) mends compatibility, stability, and other components of Apple's visually-driven web page creation tool.

iWeb loads much faster

new features (I think they're new):
- buttons for Forward and Backward moving of objects
- mask/unmask
- rotate
- image adjust

Firefox compatibility problem with iWeb PhotoGalleries still persists (wasn't fixed)

Hard coded parts of the photo gallery (play/pause/forward/backward images which didn't display because of the transition from .mac to MobileMe) were fixed

MobileMe logo for the site and in the inspector

it wasn't long ago that 157 meg was a HUGE file size for an app, nevermind just "compatibility and stability updates" and holiday card themes.

why is software so bloated?

I think most app updates from Apple are mostly drop-in replacements for the program, basically a fresh copy. I think a lot of it is taken in the .nib files for the many languages that Apple supports.

...these updates are more stable than iTunes 7.7. That update has caused nothing but headaches for a TON of people.

I am pleased to see iWeb is fixed and now shows maps and a Google ads correctly again. Also a new feature in map with a zoomed location inset. Nice touch.
From Apple ][ - to new Mac Pro I've used them all.
Long on AAPL so biased

iWeb is pretty phenomenal, if you just ignore the current MobileMe issues and Firefox3 web galleries...

Made that in iWeb, never thought I'd be able to do such a cross-browser compatible website so easy. Yeah, it's a real bandwidth hog, that website...

iWeb Hint:

If you're tried of fonts not showing up on PC which looks great in iWeb, like headlines, particularly, just rotate it by 0.1 degrees -- still looks straight, and iWeb will convert it into a graphic (old skool technique) so it shows up properly on all browsers.

Or simply add a drop shadow and reduce to minimum if not really wanted.
