Aperture 1.1 to be released April 13, 2006: $299

Apple is set to release Aperture 1.1 tomorrow, April 13, 2006:
Aperture 1.1, a significant update to the revolutionary all-in-one post production tool for photographers, runs natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs. The update features dramatically improved RAW image rendering and a new set of advanced RAW adjustment controls. Likewise, it delivers impressive speed gains on any Mac. At a new lower price of $299, Aperture is within reach of anyone shooting with a digital SLR camera.

[Update 2006-04-13]

Aperture 1.1 has now been released, at US$299 in the US and CAD$349 in Canada. Along with the price drop, Apple has provided a rebate coupon for those who purchased Aperture previously. Those who bought the US retail version can get a US$200 rebate, and those who bought the US academic version can get a US$100 rebate. I have not been able to find corresponding coupons for Canada or elsewhere however.
