Apple Releases iTunes 8.1 with Security Patches, Speed Improvements
Thursday, March 12th, 2009 at 1:01 AM - by Bryan Chaffin
Apple released iTunes 8.1 late on Wednesday, an update that delivers two security fixes and several other improvements and changes. The release notes also say that users, "will enjoy noticeable improvements when working with large libraries, browsing the iTunes Store, preparing to sync with iPod or iPhone, and optimizing photos for syncing."
The first security fix addresses an issue where, "Sending a maliciously crafted DAAP message may lead to a denial of service." The second issue fixes an exploit where, "Subscribing to a malicious podcast may lead to the disclosure of iTunes username and password."
In addition, iTunes 8.1 provides many other improvements and bug fixes, including:
- Supports syncing with iPod shuffle (3rd generation).
- Allows friends to request songs for iTunes DJ.
- Adds Genius sidebar for your Movies and TV Shows.
- Improves performance when downloading iTunes Plus songs.
- Provides AutoFill for manually managed iPods.
- Allows CDs to be imported at the same sound quality as iTunes Plus.
- Includes many accessibility improvements.
- Allows iTunes U and the iTunes Store to be disabled separately using Parental Controls.
The download is 65.4MB through Software Update in Mac OS X or through the Apple Updater (in iTunes) for those on Windows.
