Apple continues to roll out some minor software updates this week, including iTunes 10.6.1 which should give some much needed relief to TV show fans -- and developers are also basking in the glow of a new OS X 10.7.4 seed, assuming they aren’t busy tweaking their apps for Mountain Lion already.
Apple released iTunes 10.6.1 for both Mac and Windows on Wednesday night, addressing four nagging issues that users have been experiencing since installing iTunes 10.6 earlier this month.
The “number of improvements” included with iTunes 10.6.1 are:
- Fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices.
- Addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are incorrectly described by VoiceOver and WindowEyes.
- Fixes a problem where iTunes may become unresponsive while syncing iPod nano or iPod shuffle.
- Resolves an ordering problem while browsing TV episodes in your iTunes library on Apple TV.
iTunes 10.6.1 is available now via Software Update or Apple’s support downloads website, although at this writing the Mac link still points to 10.6 for some reason.
Developers also get a treat nearly two weeks after receiving their first beta to OS X 10.7.4, with 9to5Mac reporting that a second build numbered 11E35 has hit the web and includes “no known issues” at this time. Be that as it may, developers have been asked to focus their attention on the App Store, graphics, iCal, Mail and QuickTime just the same.
The OS X 10.7.4 beta is only available to registered Mac developers for now, but judging from the lack of ongoing issues, we’ll probably see this one downloading to the public at large sooner than later.
