Aperture to include plugin support?

While everyone is still getting acclimated to the new Aperture 2, an overview published at Aperture Users Professional Network revealed an interesting tidbit that Apple itself has yet to talk much about. According to David Schloss, "Apple has added the ability to create editing plug-ins for Aperture."

Aperture has only supported export plugins thus far, so this is particularly interesting. It opens up the possibility of more pixel-level editing in Aperture from third-party plugins, even if Apple itself doesn't want to crowd Adobe's Photoshop turf. As Schloss notes, this will quite likely "revolutionize the program" in the long run. Now if only Apple would publish the details and let the developers get to work.
