Apple Updates Pro Apps & Discontinues Aperture

Apple just released significant improvements to their professional creative apps: Final Cut X, Motion 5, Compressor, and MainStage (MainStage?). If you are already using these apps you’re sure to appreciate the changes.

And Apple is discontinuing Aperture, their pro photo editing software that’s been largely criticized by professional photographers. In lieu of Aperture, photos will be managed in the Mac in the Photos.app when it becomes available at the end of this year or the start of 2015.

It’s not surprising that Aperture has been abandoned. I think its likely that iPhoto will go away as well.
