I just installed iTunes 7 at home, and running its updates now, so it will download all of my artwork as well as the gapless data. I have been playing with iTunes 7 on the Mac for a little bit now, and its pretty amazing.
One of the cool new features that they added to the Windows side (but didnt mention) is Apple Software Update. Mac’s of course have this feature already, and show you updates to all your standard Apple software (iWork, iLife, Pro stuff, etc). Now, this is available in Windows as well (though, you only really update iTunes and QuickTime). This means, no more having to download updates from the website, as well as more automated updates as well. Unless, of course, Apple has bigger plans down the line…
Below is a screenshot that I took…
Think of it the same way Windows does updates. You can go to the website and check, or have their automated system updater run every now and then.
Ill post a beter review, possibly tonight, on iTunes 7, and any diff. I see between the Mac and PC. I did notice that when trying to use the new Cover Flow feature, I had an error stating “iTunes is unable to browse the album covers on this computer”. Looking quickly, this may be due to me using RDC to connect.
I also plan to eventually review any possible updates to the COM interface to iTunes on Windows, and being able to develop Windows programs that work with iTunes.
