Apple Updates GarageBand, iMovie, iPhoto

Apple released updates Monday for GarageBand 6, iMovie 9, and iPhoto 9 (all components of iLife ‘11). All three updates are technically just maintenance releases with bug fixes (the iMovie update adds support for opening projects created with iMovie for iOS), with no mention of Lion in any of the patch notes, despite the impending release of Lion as early as this week.
