    Cool.

    This better not take away music sharing. I think I'll wait to download it just in case. :)

    Is iTunes 4.2 posted on Software Update?? If I download it from Apple.com as a new application, I'm worried I'll have to deal with re-building my library.

    Accessing the music store is instantaneous. Much improved and QuickTime also has some snappiness to it. I'm an a B&W 350mhz 512mb ram 10.3.2 :)

    Still 4.11 on the UK site. Music Store updates are irrelevant to us anyway:(

    I couldn't see it in Software Update. running 10.3.2 and had iTunes 4.1.

    I just downloaded off Apple.

    That's strange. How does it know that I don't use AOL or does it?!

    Music library is still there, no rebuilding.
    We'll see how it syncs with iPod.

    How is an update released "quietly"? This update released with the normal hoopla and confetti that the usual updates receive? :D

    My iTunes still says that it is up to date at 4.1.1

    Is this a Mac only update or something?

    I guess I will goto Apple's site and try to download it from there

    EDIT: I downloaded the update from itunes.com, and it updated to windows iTunes to 4.2

    Music Store improvements in iTunes irrelevent to the UK because they can't buy anything (like most countries).

    iPhoto:
    I hope Apple significantly improve this. I like it, but its slooow and I want sub albums.

    Windows version is 4.2.072. It also updated Quicktime to 6.5. Apple seems to be little ahead of time, quicktime's copyright says: 1992-2004 :p

    Window resize is much smoother in iTunes now. Music store does not open in a new window.

    Music store only opens in new window when it is double clicked.

    Also, they finally fixed the maximize problem. Now it behaves like a windows application and not a Mac app. Good for windows users. Of course I was kinda getting used to it

    There are now seperate account selections in the Authorize window.

    There is one for a Mac ID and one for an AOL Screen Name
