iTunes 12.4 Released

Apple released iTunes 12.4 today. It features a significant UI change as well as updates under the hood. And AppleScript additions!

I've just installed it and note these AppleScript changes right off the bat:

current track - now recognizes tracks being played from "For You" and "New" sections. The tracks will be URL class.

download - originally for podcast episodes, now includes the ability to download cloud tracks or playlists to your library.

select - tell iTunes which objects you want to select (as opposed to selection objects already selected manually). [UPDATE: This is incorrect; see here.]

downloader Apple ID and downloader name properties of track.

New subscription playlist (an Apple Music playlist), miniplayer window and video window classes.

I haven't tested any of these very thoroughly yet. In fact, only current track. And of course, there is likely more stuff to discover. More as it develops.
