Apple Updates Safari, iPhoto, Aperture

There was a series of minor software updates this week including Safari and Apple’s two photo management tools. Safari 6.0.4 adds a feature where you can enable Java only for certain specific web sites. This addresses a problem where users want to protect themselves from future Java security exploits, but need to use Java on some trusted web sites.
You can access this new setting after using Software Update to get Safari 6.0.4. Then you go to Safari, Preferences, Security and look next to the Enable Java checkbox for a new button that lists the web sites you have accessed that require Java.
The update to iPhoto adds the ability to delete individual images from a Photo Stream by simply dragging it to the iPhoto trash. You can also import images into a Photo Stream with drag-and-drop. Aperture 3.4.4 included a few bug fixes.
