Apple updated its iWork suite with some bug fixes and a nifty addition today.  By far the most interesting is the ability to export into ePub format.   That means you can easily put your documents into your iBooks application on iOS devices (not that you couldn’t use PDF for the same purposes before).

We are always wary of updates before an event so we’ll see soon if there are any hidden compatibility issues addressed for new devices revealed next week.  Other updates to Pages, Numbers and Keynote include:

What’s included in the update:

Keynote 5.0.4

  • Addresses an issue when printing handouts with rule lines.
  • Fixes an issue with the slide switcher.
  • Resolves an issue when automatically resizing some images while changing slide size.
  • Fixes an issue with tables.

Pages 4.0.4

  • Fixes an issue with tables.
  • Includes compatibility with the standard ePub file format (for use with iBooks) when exporting.

Numbers 2.0.4

  • Fixes an issue with tables.
