Follow-Ups on Chameleon SSD Optimizer/Trim Enabler with OS X 10.8.4:
I've updated the page of Feedback on Chameleon SSD Optimizer/Trim Enabler with notes/follow-ups after updating to OS X 10.8.4. (Includes some varied experiences but with tips for getting Trim working again in OS X 10.8.4.)
iTunes 11.0.4 Update (bugfixes):
Available at and software update.
"About iTunes 11.0.4
This update fixes a problem that may cause iTunes to quit if you switch between wired and wireless syncing and addresses an issue that may require you to log into the iTunes Store repeatedly.

Mac SHA1= cd9f00b54f2c7b2b46083f8c3d2813e0b3bc3b30

(The miniplayer, songs view, Multi-Disc albums items on the iTunes 11.0.4 page are repeats from 11.0.3 and not listed here.)

Aperture 3.4.5 Update (info/download):
(download page linked)

"About Aperture 3.4.5 Update (523.15 MB)
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Aperture to quit unexpectedly when deleting items from a camera or memory card after import.
  • Memory cards are now ejected correctly when using the Delete Items option after import.
  • Includes stability improvements

I don't own Aperture to test this, but the download above may not update Aperture installed from the App store. (Support page D/L updaters would not update bundled/app store installs like iPhoto.)
