And the media browser remains broken, i.e., does not appear to have any knowledge of Aperture. This cannot possibly be that hard to fix.

Bryan:

Many thanks for the heads up, although I’m sure MacKeeper or the AppStore would have alerted soon enough. Based on Jeff’s review, and the litany of user complaints in its wake, I avoided opening up my science log, which I keep in Pages, until the bug fix. I opened it after the upgrade, and so far, all formatting is accounted for and everything appears to work.


rjackb:

I can’t speak to Aperture, but the iLife-related media apps as well as iTunes do show up and appear to work.

I’ll be keen to see Jeff’s thorough follow-up review, should one be in the, um… iWorks.
