iTunes 7.1, QT 7.1.5 ship

Apple today released iTunes 7.1, an update to its multimedia jukebox software as well as QuickTime 7.1.5, an update to the multimedia software that address eight different security flaws. iTunes 7.1 brings support for Apple TV, allowing users to "enjoy your favorite iTunes movies, TV shows, music, and more from the comfort of your living room with Apple TV." Apple said that iTunes 7.1 also supports a new full screen Cover Flow and improved sorting options to let users decide how iTunes should sort your favorite artists, albums, and songs. Apple TV is expected to be available from Apple in next few weeks, after an unexpected delay pushed shipments back from promised February ship date. Apple's QuickTime 7.1.5, a 44.2MB download, delivers numerous bug fixes and addresses critical security issues. This update is recommended for all QuickTime 7 users. It includes security fixes for viewing a maliciously-crafted 3GP file on Windows machines and when viewing a variety of maliciously-crafted files (MIDI, QuickTime movie, PICT, QTIF) file on either Windows or Macs. Both of these could result in application crash or arbitrary code execution, according to Apple. The updates are available via the Software Update.
