Damn...it would be cool if my 'book could handle CoverFlow smoothly even without fullscreen...

Ah crap! iTunes broke my [insert name of carefully set-up app here]...






Nah, just kidding. Thought I'd get in first. :D
Downloaded, installed and ready to reboot.

Now I have to spend hours looking for good quality album covers to satisfy this beautiful fullscreen CoverFlow...

In Fullscreen Coverflow, is anyone else getting those diagonal thin black lines running from top-left corner to bottom-right across the album cover?

You know that as of iTunes 7, iTunes will download artwork for you, right?
I have artwork for all my albums...and some (especially the ones that iTunes did not have, and I had to find from Google or elsewhere) look dreadful due to bad quality when they are looked at such a large scale...

I have to say as nice as full screen coverflow is, its not very smooth on my MacBook Pro, despite the fact it should adequately be able to handle such a thing.

ooh, maybe they're coming soon then!

i'd have thought that seeing as the updated iTunes & QT are here, there's nothing left to iron out... :)

I figured fullscreen CoverFlow would become a feature. Thank goodness all my album artwork is 600 x 600 pixel and larger. :)

System volume overlays don't appear in fullscreen mode, though. Any word on an improved Sound Check algorithm?

Got the updates downloading now. Will be installing them on at least two of my machines today.

Time for everyone to jump into the water. Watch out for the sharks. Let the complaints start rolling ;)

Software Update isn't finding anything yet - I take it it'll take a bit to feed through?
It's already in Software update on my PowerPC systems. OS 10.4.8.

So, I'm downloading it through Software Update now.

I'm going to download it once, and then install it on all my machines (using the Download Only option).
