Five iTunes 7.7.1 Bug Fixes Detailed

by Adam C. Engst

Apple has released iTunes 7.7.1 with criminally terse release notes saying that it includes "fixes to improve stability and performance." As a result, it's nearly impossible to figure out what has changed, although some trawling through Apple's discussion forums yielded additional information. Two of the bug fixes below were noted by an pseudonymous Apple employee, which gives them a certain imprimatur, but for the rest, the best we can do is to offer user reports that have only anecdotal support.

iTunes 7.7.1 is a 48 MB download available via Software Update or from the iTunes download page [7].
