Safari 5 was originally released in June with a significant performance increase and improved HTML 5 support.
Tuesday's iWeb 3.0.2 update refines comment and search support for blogs and podcasts published to MobileMe, and resolves some issues related to publishing sites to MobileMe.
iWeb is overdue for a full update. The last major revision came in January 2009 with iLife '09.
A listing for a "Family Pack" of the unannounced iLife '11 was spotted on Amazon.com, but has since been taken down.
In July, rumors incorrectly slated iLife '11 for an August release.
