Apple Updates iTunes to Version 11.0.3 With New MiniPlayer and Improvements




Apple has released an update to its iTunes music and media application, bringing it to version 11.0.3.

The update updates the compact MiniPlayer, adding album artwork and a progress bar, as well as better support for multi-disc albums and large iTunes libraries.
Quote:
This version of iTunes comes with several new features and improvements, including:

- New MiniPlayer. MiniPlayer now includes a beautiful new view that showcases your album artwork. In addition, a progress bar is now built right into MiniPlayer.

- Improved Songs View. You can now enjoy your album artwork while in Songs view.

- Multi-Disc Albums. Albums with multiple discs now appear as a single album.

This update also provides performance improvements when searching and sorting large iTunes libraries.
The update weighs in at 187.50MB on the Mac, and is available through the Mac App Store, Software Update, and direct from Apple's Software Download Page.

The last update to iTunes was released back in February.

Screenshots of the new MiniPlayer. I'm unsure what to make of it yet.

Also, the controls fade on the large view of the album artwork after a few seconds.

Omg, can someone confirm this? I've missed this so much. ):

By confirm, I mean screenshot.

I'm still waiting for the update that allows me to see multiple season artwork for my TV shows instead of just the latest season...

I like it. It's an aesthetic thing, but I like seeing the cover art on my desktop while browsing or working. Also, nicely matches the music app on iOS now

Finally! I'm really looking forward to this. It was really annoying to have multiple discs show when this could have been solved by just showing one single album.

It's probably still propagating across all their servers. Give it a little while and try again.

Looks nice and I like your choice of album to display your screen shot with.

Not sure whether or not to update. Last time I did it, it messed up my Podcasts. Had to redownload nearly 40gb of podcasts.

This is something I've been looking for as well. I just wish iTunes didn't give me beach balls so frequently.

Yea, I agree that Ive is working his magic already.

iOS 7 can't come soon enough. The iPad music app is looking really atrocious now.
