Update would ship as part of iLife 2010
The next version iDVD will include tools for iTunes LP creation, a source claims. The feature would allegedly be part of a massive overhaul of the software, which has received comparatively little attention next to other iLife programs such as iMovie, iPhoto and GarageBand. An iDVD update would likely arrive alongside the 2010 edition of iLife.
iTunes LP expands some of the supplementary material for music at the iTunes Store, inserting DVD-like extras. The new creation tools would allow record labels to produce LP content on their own, without relying on Apple's help as is currently required. Companies may in fact be able to submit LP content automatically through iDVD, the source says.
