After seeing the WWDC and the new features of the next iTunes release I got wet.

So maybe that's a slight fabrication...

I did however wonder when the next release was due.

Anybody know?

From June 6th, it was said "within 60 days," so now its within 51 days.

Actually, I don't think any timeframe was announced at WWDC and the "60 days" timeframe you are referring to was mentioned at WSJ's D conference which was 2 weeks earlier, so it should be even closer.

I listened to that part of the WWDC twice to try and catch it, pleased I'm not going deaf/mad! :confused:

Good news about it coming soon though, I've never listened to a podcast before. :D

podcasting seems like a pretty big addition, one worthy of a whole number. i've always assumed that fractional increases referred to minor updates while whole numbers were major additions.

Podcasts are just a smart slang for "long mp3"

Steve himself said this would be 4.9.

Just look how far the 4 series has gone - from the real Music store to full iPod support to video playback to podcasting.

iTunes 5 needs to come out soon! AND I doubt I'm the only one who thinks its stupid to put like iTunes 4.7 in iLife '05 and release 4.8 after that.

Yeah, I thought it was a bit odd. Garageband 2, iMovie HD, iDVD 5, iPhoto 5 and iTunes 4.7...

Mind you, I suppose it has to be the exception because of the wintel users.
