Aperture updated to 3.2.3, enables Photo Stream deleting


Apple's pro-level photo editing application for the Mac, Aperture, has been updated to version 3.2.3. Aside from the usual fixes addressing "performance and stability," this update brings Aperture up to parity with iPhoto in allowing users to delete photos from Photo Stream, the iCloud service that allows wireless syncing of photos across all enabled devices.

Oddly, this update has come out nearly a week after similar updates to Aperture's "little brother" iPhoto were issued, but Apple's support site claims the update actually went live March 6, the day before Apple's big iPad event and the launch of the iPhoto update. I know for a fact that Aperture 3.2.3 didn't show up in my Mac's Software Update until a few hours ago as of this writing, and MacUpdate's information on the Aperture update confirms it didn't go live until March 14 despite what Apple's support site says. The fact that this update came out almost a week after a similar iPhoto update, plus the incorrect date on Apple's support site, makes me wonder if someone forgot to throw the switch on the Aperture update on March 7.

Whatever the case may be, Aperture 3.2.3 is available now as a 636 MB update. Now if you'll excuse me, I have about 200 iPhone screenshots to clear out of my Photo Stream...
