Wondering if the iTunes Match cover art issue is fixed yet.

Also if the ability to search via home share for large libraries is fixed as well.

Not possible when Apple didn't plan ahead with ID creation pre-iTunes. More so for people using more than 1 country.
that doesnt work unfortunately. apple is being darn smart and still knows that its the same machine and gives me the same bs message. i even tried a "time jump" with time machine. they must have locked it deep within the machine or something.

No great problems over here

For the lack of Coverflow alone, I've avoided iTunes 11 like the plague. Some obviously do not care about that, but with version 10.7 I've had little trouble with an external library—so perhaps another reason to avoid version 11 for now.

Music is stored locally on the internal drive, but space limitations have long since dictated most video moved to an external hard drive. In this instance a Time Capsule not otherwise used for Time Machine backups, although I cannot see why that would make a difference one way or another.

But can report that the files and their associated cover art are invariably accessible when the external drive is mounted (with cover art always viewable in iTunes, external mounted or not). And I have to pay no particular attention to it, turning off the computer, un-mounting, remounting and so forth in no particular order. Any movie or TV program only has to be located once, when first moved from the internal drive to the external. It will then display the exclamation mark (!), and simply a matter of pointing to its new location—but again, only once the first time.

Sometimes—seemingly at random and for no accountable reason—the associated artwork for a movie or TV program will vanish but then unaccountably reappear. No idea why, although playing the file in question seems to bring it back, or it will just reappear later on its own. But this minor in the grander scheme of things.

Perhaps that was the default setting, do not recall, but in iTunes preferences, under Advanced, both "Keep iTunes Media folder organized," and "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" are checked, selected, and active.

IF one has any different experience, and iTunes 11 responsible, then Apple owes you a big apology. And you can thank them for the inconvenience by taking the trouble to revert back to iTunes 10.

Reports have it many love the new version of iTunes. Fine. To each their own. Nothing wrong, either, with having the experience work all the more swiftly and efficiently. Although I've never had much trouble in that regard with version 10. Indeed, never much cause for complaint. I doubt I could say the same with version 11—at least and until Apple decides to "fix" what they should not so abruptly have messed with.

No idea. Did you notify Apple of your problem?

Yes! Until I scroll all the way through all 4600 albums and let the artwork load then its fine. It is annoying that I have to do this now every time I restart iTunes to get the scrolling to run smoother.

Nice. If they haven't addressed this, you should submit this to iTunes feedback. I plan to do the same.

This is what I really want. Having an iTunes library hosted on an AFP server works, but Apple makes it kinda annoying. I don't care at all about these other things they add, though they are more good than bad.

Also, does it fix the bug where Firewall keeps asking permission for iTunes? My mid-2012 MacBook Pro has been bugging me with this since day 1...

Edit: IT DOES! THANKS, APPLE!

Because it's the only (legit) way to transfer media from a computer to an iPod/iPhone/iPad.

Probably so, but then why would 7 people back him/her out? Oh well...

We should all submit this request to Apple - automatic consolidation for external libraries when you mount your external. They could even integrate it as an automatic feature in the next Time Capsule..would be awesome.

Great, just lost like 90% of the podcast because of the stupid update.
Wow, the podcasts are really, really broken in 11.0.2. All available, but undownloaded podcasts show as available and unplayed, making it very difficult to determine which podcasts are really there.

Speaking of that, iTunes has no Time Machine support like the kind iPhoto has. In fact, even 3rd-party apps should be able to hook into Time Machine. For example, Photoshop could give you older versions of a particular document right inside the app.

There's actually a few programs out there that can do that these days. Just because it isn't made by Apple doesn't make it not legit.

Can't say I've really noticed a difference. The default artwork has changed though:
