Apple releases updates for iMovie, Aperture and Server Admin Tools

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Yesterday Apple released updates to iMovie, Aperture and Server Admin tools.

iMovie 8.0.2 fixes an issue with projects having a size of 0 KB.  Trying to open these projects caused iMovie to quit at launch.  This update also patches a problem where full-screen mode wasn’t able to be accessed on some systems.

According to Apple Support, Server Admin Tools 10.5.6v1.1 provides several improvements, among them:

System Image Utility – when deploying a system image created from a volume, the target computers will no longer have identical local KDC files.  Also adds NetBoot/NetInstall model filters for the latest MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers.

Server Admin – fixes an issue that could cause Server Admin to stop responding when propagating permissions on a folder which is on a volume other than the boot volume.  Also adds NetBoot/NetInstall model filters for the latest MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers.

Skype for the iPhone

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Skype has finally made it to the iPhone.  You do have to be in a Wi-Fi zone to use it, but the call quality is fantastic.

Skype also offers a monthly subscription service as well as a service called Pay As You Go, which allows you to call landlines and mobiles at a very low cost per minute.  International calls with the Pay As You Go credit start at around two cents per minute.
