Apple Excites with 64-Bit iTunes and Full-Screen Support
On a day of jam-packed Apple news and exciting - not to mention long-awaited - software and hardware releases, iTunes wasn't left out in the cold by any stretch of the imagination. Apple has released iTunes 10.4 which follows the early Wednesday morning release of OS X Lion.
The update to iTunes not only delivers 64 bit Cocoa support for OS X Lion users, but also packs full-screen support. Needless to say, "iTunes 10.4 is now designed for OS X Lion," Apple announced. "You can now use iTunes with OS X Lionís new Full-Screen App capability, which allows you to use iTunes and other apps without distractions. Navigate between full-screen apps with a simple gesture."
Also embellishing the update further are much-needed stability and performance improvements. The only trade-off (if you even want to call it that) is that a few iTunes plug-ins are no longer going to play nice and be compatible with the new version of iTunes.
