Another thing that appears to have been addressed (although perhaps it's a bit early to be certain, given its random nature) is iDevices not appearing in the sidebar.

We have 2 iPhones and an iPad and, prior to 11, they would always appear in the sidebar (but only sync wirelessly when connected to a power source, which is correct) but since 11 their appearance would be hit and miss. The only reliable way I found to force them to appear was to reboot the Mac. Quitting iTunes and restarting it wasn't enough.

Edit spoke too soon. Still broken, and further research reveals it to be an iOS 6.0.1 bug, not iTunes

That is a plain idiotic UI. To summarize: I type "Toto Africa" in the search box. iTunes shows "No Results / Search iTunes Store". Then seeing that there are no search results, hitting "Enter" shows the song or songs. That is stupid, stupid, stupid. If its a bug, it needs to be fixed. If its designed to do that, whoever designed it should be shot.

I agree. hitting Enter may work but it should show on the search results list.

It's sounds like it initially does a literal string search, but when you hit Enter it changes to an 'any words match' search.

As you say, stupid!

I'm glad about the searching and the duplicates.

The multi-window ability is one thing that I too wish they would bring back.

As with my other complaints/issues, I will be filing an Apple Feedback on this.
Please consider filing a request with them for other features they have removed.

http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunesapp.html

I mean, I used it often to compare playlists.
Now, you will have to take a snapshot, then compare the snapshot of the other playlist to the one in the main (and only) window.

Apple seems to be heading back to full "Modal" user interface on its apps (Modal meaning there is only one window allowed to interact with an application). Something that most software developers grew out of back in the 90's. But hey, Apple has decided it is good to force only one window on you, and if you want to compare, well the h-- with you.
So drink the Apple cool-aid and repeat the Mantra: whatever Apple does is always the best.

So sticking with 10.7 as long as possible.

Nothing against change, but change that removes helpful features?
That is plain stupid.
There is sadly, some insanity in the development philosophy at Apple sometimes.

Definitely agree that Apple seems constantly in a rush to remove options and features and models.

( I imagine the management, engineers and developers singing while they work:
we don't need no stinking CD/DVD...
we don't need no easy access to SD slot or USB port or...
we don't want fat machines, thin is always better...
we don't need cover flow, playlist window comparison, or whatever was in that bad old previous version of the software -- which we now hate hate hate!
)

Sigh
Are there gremlins or what running the development rules there?

iTunes Match

How about the problem where iTunes deleted my entire music library and now won't even connect!

Might be a Windows 7 issue but is anyone else having the problem of not being able to access the scroll bar on the right hand side?

Problem only turned up with v11 and hasn't been fixed by 11.0.1.

When iTunes opens, it takes up the whole screen but is not maximised. The scroll bar is missing. I can maximise the window but the scroll bar still does not appear. It only turns up when I drag the window away from the edge of the screen. Then I can resize it and maximise and the scroll bar stays displayed. Not a major issue, just annoying to have to do this every time I start iTunes...

Downgraded to 10.7 a few days ago and everything is solid and fine and dandy again.

Not going through that again, thanks Apple. I'll wait at least a few weeks and hear user feedback first this time!

That thing should be fast. Granted I have 105,535 tracks about 674GB.
That was the biggest improvement in the update I noticed as well. Like you, I have and extremely large library and prior to the fix, you might as well start searching and then go grab a cup of coffee waiting for it to catch up. MUCH better now.

Still left shuffle as a global setting

Seems to have 'fixed' some other things that weren't broken
E.g Finder - prior to update - I had favourites bottom, now they are top. This update reset all "My" preferences in Finder... Another dose of Apple Newspeak?

Let's tell Apple what each wants!

http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunesapp.html

I think the new design is clean and fresh, so give us the option to add coverflow if we like it or other features.

That iTunes Match thing will never run out of troubles in this lifetime.

@chrisci: To add salt to the wounds (pardon the expression, but it just came), even Linux has Rhythmbox which offers the precise feature that you called out. I'm surprised Apple hasn't nailed this one.

The bug I'd like fixed is to get wifi-syncing to work once more. It hasn't worked since installing Mountain Lion.

Home sharing bug not fixed. Although it could be an Apple TV bug.

Access iMac from Apple TV and stream video. After 15min iMac goes to sleep and Apple TV stops playback. It takes a reboot of the Apple TV to detect iMac and then same thing.

No issue prior to updating Apple TV software and/or iTunes 11.

Update of apps bug not fixed. How they can not fix this beats me.

Update app on Device, sync device to iTunes either wireless or via USB. Sync occurs but update app doesn't copy back to iTunes. Sync ends.

Check for updates in iTunes and update for the app shows up.

In past versions iTunes would copy from the device back to library the app if its a more recent version.

For some reason, I didn't get the new logo when I installed 11.0. It didn't show up until I updated to 11.0.1.
