    A source has tipped us off to a pending update to iTunes and QuickTime that may be arriving around Macworld.

    QuickTime 7.4 will include mainly bug fixes and security patches and support for the new version of iTunes. However, the details of the new version of iTunes remains under wraps at this time.

    It should be noted, however, that Apple often has to update iTunes to support extensive feature updates in existing products, or when supporting new products.

    Thanks, iPhoneGuy

    Argh! With the recently abandoned development of Quicksilver, I'm desperate for the new version of iTunes to work with it.

    As long as its fast to start up, that is all I want from iTunes, and I hardly use QT. Although, it would be nice to have video playing in the dock again...

    Wonder if it will push iTunes to version 8.

    If it provided support for using iPhone/touch/something new to be used as a controller for airtunes or the ability to stream to said devices then I think going to 8 would be worthy.

    I think it will support video rentals with an update to AppleTV with new AppleTV's being released too (remember Steve said in August there was an update to AppleTV coming soon on the software side - we have yet to see it - I think because of NBC and Movie Studio issues.)

    Maybe one thing will be addressing the bug some people have ran across with 7.5 and leopard. CD's only playing 2-3 songs then freezing the whole app.

    I'm betting on movie rentals myself and will be happy to see it.

    I would say that if it's true it's probably to introduce a movie rental service. But I think that Apple would announce it either quietly or at it's own event, and not at a Macworld.

    But what do I know?

    :p

    Macworld sounds to me, however, like a good moment to announce ITMR (iTunes Movie Rental) and some new consumer hardware (ultraportable).

    Hopefully with this update iTunes will close when I tell it to, not shortly after.

    Perhaps may see the iTunes WiFi Store on the AppleTV.

    Fixing coverart displayed on ipod touches when going landscape to be just the art for that category/list not the whole of the library.

    Options to see podcasts in video from the podcasts directory not just the movies one.

    Being able to update podcasts with just the ipod touch and wireless not requiring a mac - just like itunes purchases.

    Audio recording with touch.

    Email on touch.

    Google earth/maps on touch.

    Being able to cut and paste on touch/iphone.

    Some of the things I would like to see in an update.

    What would really be nice if they fully merged the quicktime player into itunes.

    Some Pretty Obvious Features

    Okay here's my 2¢

    Macworld will be around the time of the iPhone Dev Kit release so the update will obviously include application Support for the iPhone.

    Probably tighter integration with quicktime as that already seams to be the direction things are heading.​

    Oh and Rivix, ask and you shall receive check your iTunes store. Canada has TV shows, only about 12 but thats something. If you want more talk to the CRTC :)

    full support in vista 64bit (and for iphone/ipod touch etc) would be nice, they've had long enough :rolleyes:

    I'd have thought that would be too much stuff to put into itunes - there's a surprising amount of quicktime pro editing stuff in there. For simple viewing of course there's now quicklook - with fullscreen without pro as well!
