Some have proclaimed it dead, but there seems to be life in iDVD yet. Apple has updated the DVD creation component of iLife to version 7.1.1. The update improves overall stability and ensures compatibility when sending slideshows from iPhoto ’11 to iDVD.

Apple says this update is recommended for all users of iDVD 7. It’s a 34.53MB download and requires Mac OS X 10.6.6. or later and iDVD 7. You can obtain the update via the Software Updates component of Mac OS X’s Systems Preferences app.
