Interesting hadn't noticed that.

Astonished that someone thinks that and I think some of the replies you've had bear that out. I have been a lover and advocate of iTunes since the very beginning and with iTunes 11 I can actually say I now HATE iTunes.

Every one of my iTunes -using friends despises it as well. My current bugbears include the terrible search facility (the old one was fine), the creation of playlists is worse, the broken shuffle function. Man, even the colour (what colour?) scheme is so bland and ugly.

Well they brought back the color in the sidebar (if you choose to enable the old style sidebar which I have - it's it saves an extra click to get to things)

But I agree - however if they brought back coverflow alone I could except the other less ideal things.

As i've said before iTunes 10 ran just as fast as iTunes 11 on my rMBP - i'm sure it's faster on older machines but still I miss iT10

Apple Remote and Media Keys not working

Hey guys, i dunno if you are having the same issues as i am having right now....
before the update the global hotkeys to control iTunes quicktime and iDVD with the Rewind, Play and Fastforward keys were working, capable of controling itunes, but after the update, these controls are not working at all.... now i need to resort to pausing the music with my mouse...
(dont talk to me about the Fn Keys option in the Keyboard settings in preference, because first thing i've checked is that it is unchecked)

to make things worse...
i had a apple remote paired to my macbook pro, and even the controls on that remote is ignored...

Apple!!! your bug fix gave me more bugs!

UPDATE: Oh what the hell... its working again..... (i have had a very very bad week this week, computer decided to be unresponsive after some updates by apple, ended up doing a fresh install of my mac.)

They've silently updated all iTunes 11.0.2 packages at their servers last night. All versions remain the same, just SourceVersion for most components was updated from 1102025001000000 to 1102026001000000. Seems like some sort of rebuild.

what a piece of garbage is it, thansks again Craig Federighi, the worst thing happened to OS X.
The GUI and the cover bug are unacceptable.

Great, just lost like 90% of the podcast because of the stupid update.
As I just posted in this thread http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1545672

There was a silent update to iTunes overnight that seems to solve this, so redownload and reinstall.

Software update won't update from 25 to 26, if you want the newer one you have to download it from the apple website.

I don't know if that is true. I am still running 11.0, and the new update is not showing in software update. iTunes prompts me to update, but when it takes me to the App Store app to update, nothing is shown.

It looks like the update was taken down from software update. I assume it will return soon.

I would totally agree with you. I used to manage software development and I just don't believe they didn't spot these problems in the QA testing process.

I think the problem is that the software was late and Apple was under pressure to get it out of the door having already announced the release date. I really wish they would go back to a policy of only announcing new/updated products when they are finished, fully tested and ready to be released. They seem to release things now according to some artificial schedule based around their planned media events so they have something big to announce on the day. Ideally the software should be finished months ahead of any announcement to allow for field testing, revisions, etc. They are trying to rush products out before they are ready to keep the media and shareholders happy. But unhappy customers don't come back. Apple would do well to remember that given that they are not the only game in town any more.

Thanks - went back to the iTunes site and downloaded the latest version from there - its (26)

Seems to me they have some issues on version and release control - wonder what else is not the latest version on my mac

By the way: Not only has Apple added an optional Composers view, but they've added the ability to search for composers as well (you need to have the option enabled).



Is it just me though, or does the Composers view fail to actually show the artist for each album?!? In kind of a nonsensical fashion they appear to have copied the artist view instead of the genre view (which does contain the artist info)

I think this will be an unreliable search tool because songs don't always have the composer in there file.

It's mostly for classical music where pretty much every one of my tracks has the composer field filled in.

Wow.

Main reason I stayed on 10.7 was Cover Flow. But to remove such basic functionality for album artwork display...

iTunes 11 is like the Windows 8 of iTunes (interface wise. for what it's worth I use Windows 8 and it's great -- if you stay on desktop mode at all times)

The capability to combine multiple Apple IDs and then delete the old ones would be fantastic. I have been wishing for that for years! Come on Apple.
