Apple has introduced a series of software updates for most of the applications included in iLife 08: GarageBand, iMovie, iPhoto and iDVD.

The company has also released a pan-iLife update, iLife Support 8.1. This latter update supports system software components shared by all iLife ’08 applications.

The GarageBand 4.1 update addresses isolated graphic display issues, compatibility with third party audio software, fixes minor problems with Magic GarageBand, and supports general compatibility issues.

iMovie 7.1 addresses several areas including video and audio editing capabilities, and performance associated with opening and switching iMovie Events and Projects, while iPhoto 7.1 addresses issues encountered when moving photos between Events. That update also adds new greeting card themes, including holiday card designs.

Finally, iDVD 7.0.1 improves overall stability, supports general compatibility issues, and addresses a number of other minor issues.

All updates are available using Apple's Software Update mechanism or for direct download from Apple's Support website.
