After updating iPhoto for iOS on Wednesday to add iOS 6 support and a whole host of new features, Apple has shown a little love to iPhoto for Mac. Version 9.4 is available to download from the Mac App Store now, and it comes with support for the Shared Photo Streams introduced in iOS 6, Facebook comments, and more.

With iPhoto 9.4, you’ll be able to view Shared Photo Streams on your Mac — they’ll automatically appear when your friends share their photos with you. And for those of you who prefer to share your snaps on Facebook, you can now enjoy the ability to add comments to your images after they’ve been uploaded to your favorite social network.

This update also brings new card and calendar themes to iPhoto, a new file menu command that can be used to open the current photo library in Aperture (if installed), and it promises to improve performance and stability.

iPhoto 9.4 can be downloaded from the Mac App Store now. It requires Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2.
