I didn't need to restart.

I did. Interesting:confused:. Lots of bug fixes that I noticed right away. The Store seems faster (about time:rolleyes:). The title bar seems to be a bit darker, which looks so much better than that almost white title bar in the first version. Overall, good so far. But it has only been five minutes:D

I still have the bug with my iPhone having genius mix art in place of some podcast art, and smart playlists showing different things than on iTunes when live updating is checked. I guess those are iPhone 3.1 bugs.

Good. One needed update is out.

Now if only they could release iPhone OS 3.1.1 or 3.2 or whatever it will be called. It would be great if they could reduce my iPhone's choppiness. Apple really F'ed the chicken with 3.1.:D

Now I can go back to neurotically sorting all of my playlists "Album by Artist."

I'm not seeing any differences in the title bar color here.

Just got it...was having no problems with 9.0.0, but the iTunes store is faster now. No reboot.

Wow, so obviously it just doesn't make sense to install the first version of any new Apple software, since .1 will be out very shortly.

But I still see no compelling reason to upgrade from 8.2.1. Does anyone think there's a "must have" here?

Thank God that clicking the zoom button switches to the mini player again. That's been driving me crazy!
