Apple announces significant upgrade to Aperture version 1.0
Version 1.1, which will be available in by the end of March, will include many features requested through feedback by users. The update will be available when Apple releases it's updated suite of Pro applications as Universal Binary Versions, which are fully compatible with the newer Intel based Macs as well as older machines.

One of the most interesting enhancements is the new Auto Noise Compression algorithm. This new feature takes the length of exposure into account as well as the ISO sensitivity the image was shot at. A long exposure taken at a low ISO setting would receive less noise reduction than an image taken at ISO1600 for a shorter duration.

The updated program is fully backwards compatible. This means that images edited with version 1.1 can then be re-edited with version 1.1 and vice-versa.

Aperture 1.1 will also have the ability to handle layered PSD files. The files can then be exported back into Photoshop, still with the original layers intact.

Also included in the update will be new tethered shooting solutions for Canon and Nikon cameras.

Finally, the update also operates faster than the previous version, two-three times faster on a PowerPC machine or twice as fast on an Intel based Mac.

The update will be made available by download from Apple.
