Warning about Aperture 3.4 update
Sep 20, 2012

Make sure you have a full backup of your Aperture library before you try to run 3.4.

When I ran, it wanted to upgrade my database - it detected some kind of issue in the database, and said it was closing to re-launch to do a rebuild.

Well, that re-launch crashed. Then I tried to do a re-build, and that crashed... after a few similar tries, I reverted to a full cloned copy of my Aperture database (happily backed up just before I upgraded Aperture). Then, I copied the older Aperture from a backup drive (you could also get it off Time Machine, but my TM drive had decided to die just days earlier and I had not replaced it yet).

After restoring the cloned copy of my library and the older Aperture, Aperture runs fine again. My new plan is to re-build the database using the older Aperture, then after that run the new Aperture again which hopefully will find the database totally clean and requiring no further work beyond the 3.4 update stuff it had planned to do.

Message: Always fully backup Aperture library before any Aperture update.
