Including a plugin for APERTURE with this Apple Digital Camera RAW update is greatly appreciated. I don't know if Apple realizes just how many professional photographers continue to use their terminated products despite its discontinuation. At this date, it is still the best primary product for managing and manipulating libraries of raw digital slides. Photos is but a frustrating joke. Viva la Aperture!

Support for the D5 and D500 has been noted elsewhere to be only partial. It's sadly amusing that there doesn't seem to be a real schedule for these updates and since Aperture has been discontinued, who knows if the company will be less effective in deploying updates.

Thanks, Apple. Any particular reason why this update REQUIRES Mac OS X 10.11.x "El Capitan"?

Is the "pinwheel of death" problem during login fixed in 5.05? OK, I know that this issues can be gotten around by unchecking "Show input menu in lgin window" but I prefer not to update RAW beyond version 4.09 until this bug is fixed.

This update causes my computer to not reboot. It gets past the apple logo, then goes into the perpetual pinwheel of death before reaching the logon screen. I tried several different times to install it, all with the very same result. (Thank goodness I had backups) All other updates work fine, and there are no other problems. I have a MacBook Pro, 17-inch, Late 2011, 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB, OS X 10.8.5 (12F45)

For Fuji X-10 owners, while waiting for iPhoto and Aperture to have support for RAW, just a gentle reminder that Adobe DNG Converter (http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5388) can convert our RAW fiels into Open DNG which can be used by Aperture and iPhoto.

Wow Apple, what took you so long? Finally Panasonic FZ35/38 Finder support. Thought I'd photograph roots growing into my coffin before that would happen. Thank You many times nevertheless! Had to restart, as there were only small RAW2 previews in the Finder and my Nikon NEF's didn't show any longer. (cold sweat) If yours wasn't covered this time, rumor has it, there's always hope with Apple.

If you have a new (supported) camera but not the newest versions of Aperture or iPhoto, you're SOL. It's tempting to complain about the lack of backwards compatibility, but you will run into the same issue with Photoshop and Lightroom. In general, older versions of Adobe Camera RAW are not updated for the most recent cameras. However, you do have less expensive options than Aperture, Photoshop and Lightroom. IPhoto is, more or less, affordable (under $100). So is Photoshop Elements. Both do a decent job for the less demanding shutterbug.

I'd give it a -1 Rating if that were possible just for the fact that they don't seem to be interested in supporting the Panasonic FZ series of cameras. It's really stupid that one has to use Adobe Bridge to be able to view and sort the RW2 files.

This is for all of those idiotic 1-star ratings that people give because they have older computers and can't run new software. If you can't run it on your current equipment, then write a comment as such, don't give it a 1-star rating! If it doesn't run on YOUR system, that's not Apple's fault. But if it does run on your system, and causes problems or has bugs, then you can rate appropriately. Runs great on my Intel iMac with Snow Leopard and my Nikon cameras.

If you want to convert your RAW images to DNG, just grab the free Adobe DNG Converter from the Adobe web site: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?platform=Macintosh&product=106. I'm sure Apple sees no reason to duplicate Adobe's efforts in this regard.

It's about time Apple. The D300s was released nearly 4 months ago and you are just now issuing a compatibility update. Adobe had D300s compatibility within a month of the D300s release.

And I repeat myself..... still no support for the Panasonic LX-3. I understand that Apple has no obligation to support ANY camera and that the problem is rumored to be with Panasonic (barrel correction issue) but come on! This is probably in the top 3 P&S cameras used by pros not to mention serious hobbyists. The R-1Dx is not even released and probably will not see as heavy penetration as the LX-3 and yet it is already supported. Come on Apple, show Panny some love.... : )

It's abysmal that to install this patch improving core platforms functionality (e.g. ability to preview raw files in Finder), Apple requires to have one of the paid products (iLife or Aperture) to be installed. All of the Microsoft bashers don't have anything to say about it? If MS did something like this, it'd be all over forums.

I hope that Apple will eventually find a way to install these minor updates without the need to reboot. I know it's a lame complaint, but when I update Safari on my work Windows XP machine, it can manage to do the job without the need to interrupt everything you are working on.

In your Requirements section, it might be worth mentioning that it requires Aperture 2 or iPhoto 7.1.2 or newer. Could save a lot of unnecessary and disappointing downloads. And questions on the forums. I wish Apple would note the REAL requirements instead of just "10.4.11 or 10.5.3 or later"

ooh, bummer. Apple you just took too long to get that D90 support out. While waiting for it, I tried out Lightroom and learned what a better application it is over Aperture 2. Nice to see support for the newest cameras, but I've already been persuaded the other way.

Still no support for the Lumix DMC-FZ18K camera. Go to Amazon.com and this camera is in the top 10 of all cameras Amazon sells. It is very excellent camera and supports RAW. Yet Apple's iPhoto and Aperture do not suppot it.
