Apple has issued an update to Aperture today which fixes a Photo Stream bug that prevented new images from automatically importing into your library once it had reached 1,000 images. Despite being such a minor fix, however, the update weighs in at a whopping 551 MB.

Apple recommends it for all users of Aperture version 3:
