Apple has bolstered iPhoto and Aperture’s Photo Stream integration in its latest round of updates.

Along with a number of general bug fixes and RAW compatibility improvements, both apps have received some Photo Stream loving. Notably, iPhoto now includes the ability to export Photo Stream images from the File menu and drag them directly into the Trash. Aperture has also seen some improvements surrounding Shared Photo Streams.

Meanwhile, Safari and Java updates also hit the App Store, along with a new feature which enables you to specify exactly which sites can have Java enabled. Such a feature could go some way to avoiding some of the larger, Java-based security exploits we’ve seen recently.

The full release notes for iPhoto and Aperture are as follows:
