iTunes 4.6 is now available as a free update via Software Update, or available for download from Apple.

iTunes 4.6 includes support for playing your music wirelessly using AirPort Express with AirTunes. It also includes a number of other minor enhancements.

This update was previously announced by Steve Jobs at the D: All things Digital Convference earlier this week.

No problems

no problems at all, quick install. The only change I see is under the audio preferences, you can turn on AirTunes and it's volume settings

Let's see...I'm on 28.8K, and the package is a little over 10MB. Meh, I still like the 4MB iTunes updates from back in iTunes 2. Maybe that's it.

macridah, lol. :D

I guess I will just have to take out 10 hours to download it on my dial up connection.

I have a question for dial up users: how come it takes like 15 seconds before my modem starts dialing and my PeeCee takes only like 2 seconds?

I am talking about my iBook, specs below \/

I am strongly considering getting an Airport Express now! It will greatly benefit my network, and I love that music streaming feature!

Anyone want to start digging into this release to find anything about Itunes Europe? I imagine there is something useful in there.

Dialup Users

Dialup users are not the target market of iTMS. It is not the fault of Apple that you have dialup. Simple economics say that you upgrade your connection and pay the difference for cost vs. speed.

In my experience, there is no such thing as simple economics. Economics is by definition the science of complicating the very simple. ;)

If you used hymn to remove DRM from songs from iTMS they will NOT PLAY in the new iTunes 4.6 !!!

ah touche apple, touche. i guess it's back to my drm'd files then. itms has been losing its appeal lately though, with CDs at bestbuy going for $9.99 when released. plus i can get either frequent flier miles through continental or bestbuy's frequent buyer program miles when i buy through bestbuy.
