“Apple has begun publishing tech support documents to address some reported bugs in iTunes 7,” Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK.
“The release of the software generated the usual wave of fault reports, mainly (but not exclusively) from Windows users of the application. These reports seem to have been picked up by an Apple-fixated media,” Evans reports. “Apple’s discussion boards seem to host multiple complaints, with some Mac users reporting that the software seems a little less stable than before.”
Evans reports, “The company has begun addressing some issues within its published technical support notes. Some reported faults or missing features may reflect interface changes, Music Videos, for example, are no longer grouped with Movies, though iTunes 7 automatically creates a Smart Playlist to collect them, which is available in the Playlists pane.”
Evans has rounded up a nice list of Apple’s recently published iTunes 7 advisories in his full article here.
For those who’ve asked – thanks for asking – we use Intel-powered Macs exclusively to run iTunes 7 (70) on Mac OS X 10.4.7 (8J2135a) and have encountered no issues with the application. If you are having issues, we hope the new support docs address them. We hear an iTunes 7 update is coming soon.
