Apple releases iTunes 5.0.1

Apple late yesterday released iTunes 5.0.1 which features several stability improvements. iTunes 5 features a new even more powerful instant search, including the new Search Bar which helps you find exactly what you are looking for in iTunes or from among 2 million songs on the Music Store, folders for organizing playlists, and new Parental Controls for music, music sharing and podcasts.

iTunes 5.0.1 is available via Mac OS X Software Update and also as a standalone installer (13.8MB). More info and download link here.


  1. GrapeGraphics,

    Fsckface, it was released last night and I didn’t know about it until I read it on MDN. Gee, duh, that must be why MDN bothered to note it.

    Your attitude and lie (“couple of days”) force me to state the obvious: Go fsck yourself.

  2. I prefer to insult (where justified) without the abuse or need for vulgarity.

    Please don’t use my nick if your 2 cents worth is only some lame insult.

    Also, I don’t rely on MDN for my breaking news. I come here to see how the overzealous are reacting to the tiny ebbs and flows of the mac world.

    Thank you in advance for refraining from using my nick.

  3. I hope it fixed the “Damaged Library” problem. Out of all the info I lost when that happened, the worst was the video podcast subscription from that guy who posted various Apple commercials, etc. on his podcast. I looked all over for it yesterday but I can’t remember what it was called or what the guy’s name was. Anyone know what I’m talking about?
