Apple has updated its iWork productivity suite to version 9.0.5, which marks the fifth time Apple improves the underlying code in iWork ‘09 since its introduction almost two years ago. All three applications that make up iWork - Pages, Keynote, Niumbers - have gained individual updates that are available as a bundle through a 67.06 MB download.
Yesterday, Apple updated
two of the five applications comprising its iLife 11 suite of applications - iMovie and Garageband.
Now it's iWork's turn, with the 9.0.5 update which addresses several bugs, including some relating to managing and editing Keynote presentations.
The Keynote application is used to create presentations, and features powerful, yet easy-to-use tools and effects to make stunning slideshows.
Update 9.0.5 also addresses compatibility issues with EPUB document exports, and the iWork.com beta, a rather young document-sharing and collaboration service.
“This update contains bug fixes and improvements, including the following,” Apple states in a technical note
posted on the Support area of its web site.
The Mac maker compiles a list of some of the most important issues addressed, as follows:
· Adds support for playback of Keynote presentations on iWork.com public beta, with over 15 animations and effects, when using the latest version of Safari.
· Adds support for Keynote Remote 1.2, including high-resolution slides for the Retina display.
· Addresses an issue in Keynote with ruler numbers when moving or resizing a shape or scrolling.
· Addresses an issue when exporting a Keynote presentation to iTunes/iPod when iTunes 10 is installed.
· Improves the readability of ePub documents exported from Pages.
· Includes public sharing and private upload document sharing options for iWork.com to Keynote, Pages, and Numbers.
According to Apple’s website, this update is recommended for users of iWork 9.0 and later, while those who’ve already picked up on iWork.com should test the sharing options and provide feedback.
Detailed information on this update is provided by Apple in a separate Support document
which also includes individual application changes.
