Apple is updating several of its software applications to add compatibility with Mac OS X Lion, including the iWork productivity suite comprised of Keynote, Pages, and Numbers.
iWork 9.1 adds support for Mac OS X Lion and takes advantage of a number of key features that are typical to the new OS.
Referring to the updated iWork bundle as 'iWork Update 6', Apple describes
the contents as follows:
“iWork Update 6 is recommended for iWork 9.0 and later when using Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.6 and above) and OS X Lion. This update adds support for OS X Lion features.”
Those features, Apple later reveals, are Full-Screen, Resume, Auto Save, Versions, and Character picker.
Softpedia covered some of these Lion-specific features in the months leading up to the official launch. You can learn more about some of them via these links:Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Features: Full-Screen AppsMac OS X 10.7 Lion Features: Auto SaveMac OS X 10.7 Lion Features: Versions
iWork 9.1 (update 6) also improves Microsoft Office compatibility, Apple reveals.
According to the company headquartered at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, California, Keynote 5.1 adds new Anvil and Fall Apart builds.
System requirements include Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later, and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
Supported languages include Deutsch, English, Français, Español, Italiano, Nederlands, Dansk, Norsk Bokmål, Polski, Português, Português Brasileiro, Pусский, Suomi, Svensk, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
In a Support article dedicated to this very iWork update, Apple outlines not two, but three methods of downloading and installing the new release.
For the first time, Mac users are being instructed to update their iWork apps through the Mac App Store interface, should they purchase any iWork app through the digital storefront program.
