  • Apple Quietly Updates iMovie, Garageband Before Mac App Store Arrival

    This week, on the eve of the Mac App Store's launch on Thursday, Apple very quietly updated Garageband and iMovie '11 for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard users. With the ostensible objective to tweak the stability and compatibility of the apps before the Mac App Store goes live, Apple now appears to have all its ducks in a row for Thursday's grand arrival.

    With regard to Garageband 6.0.1, we have a 47.5MB download that is recommended for all iLife '11 users. The update tackles some minor issues, like losing the intermittent latency that often hinders guitar tracks, and restoring the ability to use the Quantize Note Timing menu for tracks with Groove Matching.

    According to some, the fixes delivered to iMovie were of greater concern. Fortunately, those concerns now appear to have been resolved via the 27.52MB iMovie update. By all accounts, Apple has fixed a stabilization problem that primarily effected video clips from iPhones or iPod Touches. Additionally, a bug that hindered iMovie from uploading to Facebook because FB passwords had non-alphanumeric characters was also fixed.

    Both updates are available now through software update or via Apple's support web site.

      Unless they will make money. If its something that will result in no or negative profit margin they keep it as quiet as possible, but if they might make money like a new product or a super major update, they make a huge spectacle out of it. What they never do is make a small quiet event

      I wish they would finally fix all of the problems with iPhoto 11. I regret updating.
