    A report from AppleInsider points to a release of iTunes 7.5 as early as next week. The release will contain a host of small improvements and bug fixes according to the site, though no radical changes should be expected.

    Better management of duplicate video and song entries will be included as well as a more stable experience for users upgrading their songs to iTunes Plus purchases.

    Currently in late-beta, the site expects that the software could be released within the week, however notes that such high-impact releases such as iTunes can occasionally see unforeseen setbacks. Nonetheless, the release should be out by mid-November at the latest.

    maybe they'll point iTunes's movies folder to ~/Movies. That'd be quite nice.

    I've been wondering how long it's going to take them to do that...

    it would make sense, giving how things are turning out...

    iTunes really needs a name change, but given how it has such a brand recognition of its own now, I doubt it will ever happen.

    and
    maybe they will fix their window theme on Leopard so it actually paints itself as a background window when its not the active window!

    I find it very annoying that iTunes looks like its the foreground window when its not.

    Perhaps, Notes syncing with the iPhone?

    I figured they would jump to 7.5 since the Windows iTunes is one update ahead of the Mac iTunes. A new feature or two for us Leopard users would be nice.

    Hopefully they will make it suck a little less on windows.

    Hopefully there will be something to do when you have the same song in two albums, want complete albums, but not duplicate files...

    I'd like to see them add in a "Videos" section, along with Movies and TV Shows for my little 2 minute long videos that I've made, that don't belong in with my full length movies, and sure don't belong in with my TV shows. A small complaint, but still something that I'd personally like to see.

    Ooh , I hope it's another iPhone support update, I love installing updates that mean nothing outside the countries that Apple has decided to sell iPhones to. :)

    To go from 7.4.2 to 7.5 means a significant change instead of a little fix.


    [edit] perhaps spotlight integration using the same functions as the sidebar in Leopard. [/edit]

    I've never had any problems with duplicate songs... what's the fix about? Unless this release preceeds another iPhone firmware, I don't see the point.

    And yes, I've never understood the lack of pointing towards ~/Movies. What would the point of having that folder be if it's never used? iTunes should integrate with your user folder, not some random place on your HDD.

    Re: iTunes rename... I don't think iMedia has the same ring to it.

    It's probably too big for a point release, but iTunes really needs a tagging system. I want to be able to attach more than one genre or artist to a single song file.

    I'm not upgrading from iTunes 7.2 until they make sorting sane again.

    Symbols come before numbers which come before letters. This 'gold standard' of alphanumeric sorting has been used for ages -- even the good old Dewey Decimal system recognizes this.

    In iTunes 7.3, Apple decided -- against all conventions -- that it was a good idea to put symbols and numbers after letters when sorting tracks in the library window. I was certain at first that this was a bug, but numerous releases later the behavior is remains the same. This drives me nuts, and I refuse to adapt.

    I hope they make it easier to rename legally downloaded shows from sites like etree. It's such a pain to manually enter in all that info when it comes with a document that has all the necessary info.

    I always thought Showtime sounded like a good name for a rebranded iTunes. However, I'm sure there are lots of obstacles, given the Showtime TV channel.

    FrontRow, or FrontRow Manager. As things stand, the brand is so strong, I doubt we'll see a change. But, forget iTunes, I'm ready for a new iPhone update :)

    That's funny.

    Need I remind you of 5.0.1 -> 6.0, which not only came out ~a month after 5.0 but added essentially nothing but 5th Gen iPod support and a new version of FairPlay?

    A new version of a DRM IS a significant update.

    imho :)

    ymmv

    Yes, and lets hope it doesn't bring any hassles to those of us installing 3rd party Apps and ringtones onto our iPhones. :rolleyes:
