This, and tag support like iPhoto has. Also, Composer View would make much more sense if iTunes would recognize or allow the input of separate names for composers rather than just one single string of all composers involved.

Oh, okay. I didn't realise that was still the case (I thought they were all now 'PC free').

Then I'm even more surprised that iTunes is so bad if its the only interface between their computers and their top selling products. I thought iTunes used to be quite good, shame it's gone so downhill.

Why? Are there big problems with 10.8.2?

I use my Time Capsule as external storage, which is probably why I'm always forgetting to quit iTunes before leaving my house. I have to manually consolidate my library several times a week because of this. Maybe I should just use a physical external HD. Would make it easier to remember.
I also have my music library on TC and haven't had problems with the iTunes Library. I have the TC set to mount at start up - maybe that's the trick?
Anyways, maybe that'll help you.

The best update they could give Itunes is to delete it and let people put stuff on their iphones through a finder-like interface.

Itunes is a bag of hurt. Ive hated it since day one.

I will be on all Google software devices soon, or on Windows. iTunes in its latest iteration is disgusting. Their total iOS'ing of the OS is bumming me out super hard. iTunes Match is also worthless. Changed my catalog, artwork and genres. Wrong titles on artwork etc... What happened? I been a Apple user since 94'

Dear Apple,
Please no watches, no tvs, just do what you do good software and ok hardware, make it clean and intuitive... and please make iCloud work :facepalm
with love
Donnie D

It has always been like this and this is something I don't actually get - Apple TV or iPhone/iPad do manage to have the artwork available from the very first second. Given the limited recsources of iOS compared to OS X hardware this is not quite understadable.

The closest you can do is the "Organize Library..." choice and there's a checkbox that will sort the different media types into separate folders. So music is in one, and movies in another, etc. But they all live in the library folder, so you can't split them between drives.

Composer's View! Holy Grail, at Apple they have finally discovered that there are other musical genres, apart for Country and Western!

It doesn't help if you have a bunch of stuff in different genres and different requirements for each genre. Like you, if I want to listen to classical, I tend to search by composer. But, if it's other genres such as folk or rock, then I'll go by artist or album. That doesn't work easily here. Guess, what I want is to have genres in the sidebar.

Not sure I see the issue. You can put (e.g.) "Classical" in the search box and press Enter to filter by genre in the new Composer view. Alternatively, and this is how I've been using iTunes 11, you can either create a classical playlist with column browser columns composers/groupings/artists, or create smart playlists for your favorite classical composers and set them to show the artist list or album view.

Seems they've disabled the ability to drag and drop new songs into your library. What's the point

Apple will not let me consolidate my two accounts (one created accidentally). I've begged. Phone support, e-mail support, the Genius Bar -- all said it was impossible.

It has never been like this for me and I've been on iTunes since day 1. It has been like this as far as loading artwork on my iPad and Apple TV. Exactly the opposite of what you say. i can understand my iPad mini having a problem loading artwork (in remote app) for 4600 albums but a macbook pro with 8gb of ram should not all of the sudden after an update have problems rendering artwork on iTunes.

Any update to the dog that is iTunes 11 is welcome IMHO. This thing has more holes in it than a Swiss cheese so I doubt this update will address even a minor proportion of the problems but it's better than nothing. I just hope to god someone somewhere in Apple is working night and day on an iTunes 12 that fixes all the problems.

I STILL want album covers displayed larger than a postage stamp. Clearly it's set up for a Macbook-sized screen, but they get completely lost on a 27" imac.
