Updated on 7/13/2011 at 3:49 PM PDT: Michael Klinger, a Cult of Mac reader from Austria, sent me an email this afternoon pointing out the fact that the update for Aperture isn’t available for him yet in the Mac App Store. Ironic if you consider that some recent Apple updates were available there first.
