Apple has released updates for Final Cut Pro.

The company has also issued an update for its Pro Applications Update software, which handles some components of its other pro video applications.

Final Cut Pro Update 5.1.2 is a 28MB download. The company says the update provides bug fixes and compatibility updates for Canon, Sony, JVC and Panasonic devices. "This update is recommended for all Final Cut Pro 5.1 and Final Cut Pro 5.1.1 customers," Apple explains.

The 7MB Pro Applications Update, we're told, tackles several issues with underlying frameworks and shared components for other pro video applications. These include Motion, Soundtrack, DVD Studio Pro and others.

Both updates are Universal: they are for PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. Apple's software update pages are now searchable and easier to navigate than before.
