That Didn’t Take Long…iTunes 7.4.1

iTunes 7.4.1 was released today. No specific changes were noted by Apple, but by some accounts it blocks the ability to create your own iPhone ringtones by merely changing the file extension (to .m4r).

iTunes 7.4 Released

iTunes 7.4 was released last night but I didn’t get to it til this morning. New stuff! Album Ratings! My Good Friend Kirk McElhearn has observations on this new feature. I’m still looking into other AppleScript additions, but quite noticably there are three new track properties: album rating, album rating kind, and rating kind. The “kind” properties are read-only, but you can set album rating just like rating. I’ll be posting a page of my findings later today.
