A brief synopsis is as follows:

This update improves overall stability and fixes issues in a number of areas in Aperture 3. The key areas addressed include:

* Switching target printers and paper sizes when printing
* Duplicating Smart Albums
* Repairing and rebuilding Aperture libraries
* Reconnecting referenced files

I sooo want to upgrade, but given some of the issues some folks have had (see for example Tony Wu's experiences at http://www.tonywublo...perture-3.html), I'm trying to hold out to version 3.1.

I have to say I really think Tony's experience is slanted by his experience with the first release of 3.0
3.1 and 3.2 I think really fixed the upgrade issues.
I think Aperture 3 is one of the sweetest programs I've ever used,the more I use it, the more I like it. Having said that, I'd make a copy of your Aperture library on a separate hard drive before you do the upgrade, so you can always go back if you want to, or need to. Another important thing is to do a rebuild of your Aperture 2 library before you do the upgrade. When you do the upgrade, also plan to do it when you can let your machine do it's thing for a few hours or overnight, depending on the size of it's library. On a later model MacPro or Mac Book Pro with enough RAM, Aperture 3 is absolutely worth the upgrade in my opinion.
