Aperture Exporter Beta 4 Now Available

Beta 4 has been released and has multiple changes.

√ Use notification center at end of export.
√ Bug fix when creating jpeg.
√ AE added keywords all have a parent called AE.
√ Keywords added to images that are in albums if export albums as folder not selected.
√ Bug fix for offline files.
√ Tag any images that are not pick of stack.
√ Custom metadata converted to keywords.
√ jpeg images are stored with embedded metadata because Lightroom doesn’t import sidecar data for jpegs.

My own testing shows that Aperture will complain about not being able to embed metadata when using Aperture's RAW+JPEG mode. The current workaround solution is to make sure that the RAW is being used as the original.
