iTunes beta 8 and iWork beta 3 close on release

Apple signaled that it was closing in on the release of its iCloud-related efforts on Friday with new developer betas of iTunes and iWork for iOS. iTunes 10.5 beta 8 focuses on "several performance enhancements and bug fixes" but is considered necessary to keep using iTunes Match during its beta phase. As before, testers still have to pay $25 per year like the public but get extra months of service in return for the testing.

iWork for iOS beta 3 has fewer details and is also expected to be a bug fix. The revision when finished will primarily add iCloud document syncing.

Absent in the group is a new iOS 5 beta. Apple has posted iTunes and iWork betas before without the mobile OS. The repeat supports views that Apple is winding down work on the OS itself and that most of the remaining work is on integrating it with the rest of Apple's software.
