iTunes updated to 10.6.1, adds stability, bugfixes

updated 08:30 pm EDT, Wed March 28, 2012

Improvements for Apple TV, iPods, more

Apple has begun pushing out iTunes 10.6.1 via Software Update, resolving some stability issues that had caused the program to unexpectedly quit when performing certain operations such as syncing photos to devices. The update also resolves other minor bugs such as incorrect descriptions of interface elements as described by VoiceOver and WindowEyes, a syncing issue with certain kinds of iPods, and an ordering problem seen with TV episodes on Apple TV.

The update is 65MB is size (may vary with different system configurations) and does not require a restart. The update fixes quitting issues that can happen while playing videos or changing the artwork size in Grid view, fixes a condition where iTunes can become unresponsive during iPod nano and iPod shuffle syncing, and corrects the order of TV episodes seen when browsing the iTunes library on Apple TV.

The update requires that users already have iTunes 10.6, which was released earlier this month and brought support for 1080p video for the first time. For Macs, the software minimally requires a G4 or later running Mac OS X 10.5.8 and Safari 4.0.3 or higher. To play Standard Definition video from the iTunes Store, a 1GHz G4 or better is required; 720p HD video or iTunes LPs or iTunes Extras require a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac with 1GB of RAM or better, and 1080p requires a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or better with 2GB of RAM.

    same as always

    Every dot release of iTunes apparently breaks a bunch of stuff, for every maintenance release has the same 'feature' set: "stability improvements and bug fixes".

    Makes one wonder who at Apple thinks stability issues (as in "it crashes!") isn't a bug.
