“After a long wait, Apple has released the next major update to its pro-class photo workflow application, Aperture 3. The new version boasts over 200 new features, including the addition of the successful facial recognition and geotagging features, Faces and Places, that were introduced with iPhoto ’09. Version 3 also adds edge-detecting adjustment brushes for non-destructive localized editing and touch-ups. Along with numerous UI and performance improvements, Aperture 3 adds full 64-bit support on supported systems running Snow Leopard.”

Seems a lot faster now than the last version I had… The problem before I had was when I was touching up a photo. I would apply the brush, then wait 10 seconds or more before the update was done… It seems instantaneous now.
It’s feels a lot more like iPhoto now, but with a lot more professional touch to it…
I’m running this on a 2.16GHz iMac with 3Gb memory and Snow Leopard (latest build) if that helps anyone…
But still no raw support for cameras where users have been requesting it for a long time, such as some Panasonic models (FX-150 and others).
