Aperture 1.5.3 update

Both of my machines are now updating Aperture to 1.5.3 via Software Update. A search at Apple's website turns up no information about 1.5.3, and I can't find any mention of the 1.5.3 update on the innernets. Here's what the update says:

Aperture 1.5.3 addresses issues related to overall reliability and performance in a number of areas, including:

  • Generation of thumbnails for adjusted images
  • Entering and exiting Full Screen mode
  • Working with large sets of keywords in the Keywords HUD
  • Restoring from a vault

Among the specific issues that have been addressed:

  • Previews now update properly when images are sent to an external editor.
  • Leaf Aptus 22 and Aptus 75 images are now imported with the correct orientation.
  • When folders are imported as projects, the folder structure is now correctly preserved when identically named subfolders are included in the hierarchy.
  • Reconnecting referenced images that have been externally edited now works more reliably.
  • Setting the ColorSync profile in the Aperture Print dialog now correctly suppresses color management settings in the Mac OS X Print dialog.

One interesting thing is that my desktop downloaded the update at around 580Kb/sec while my notebook is chugging along at 20-70Kb/sec, with periodic dropouts to 0. That seems wrong.

--- UPDATE ---

My Mac Pro Quad still takes 10-15 seconds to display thumbnails for 30,200 images. I'm doing a find right now for all files containing "030801", and it's already been 45 seconds. I'm still waiting.
