iTunes 8.1 to be Released Shortly
Since the new iPod Shuffle was released today with iTunes 8.1 listed as a requirement you can expect to see iTunes 8.1 seeded in your software updates very soon. According to the iTunes What's New page iTunes 8.1 comes packed with the following new features:
- Speed boots for library loading, iTunes Store browsing, device syncing.
- Genius feature will include movies.
- Default audio import settings changed to 256kbps AAC
There are also some additional features suggested by the iTunes A to Z page.
- Parental controls that disable iTunes Store access while allowing iTunes U access.
- Autofill says "new." The changes aren't listed but there is speculation this feature is being updated to work with all iPods
As always please refrain from updating until it is clear whether or not the new iTunes will interfere with Jailbreaking.

Aye carumba, the only thing I want is for shuffle to be improved; I've really noticed it being repetitive recently...Respect your elders.

I want to update but....
How is this going to affect the jailbreaking process?.... You remember how they threw a monkey wrench at a while back right. Do you think iTunes will ever have skins or different colors to use?... Just tossing something around.

are you talking about this? Apple - iTunes - Remote ??? i am talking about wireless syncing when i walk into my house or something if i forget to sync it up with a new number or something. i dont see how this app will let me do this. please confirm.

MobileME is wireless syncing.
With them trying to get you to purchase a subscription to MobileME, i don't see them ever allowing wireless sync via itunes, so if i were you i wouldnt hold my breath. Although it only syncs contacts, calendar, and bookmarks - it doesnt sync anything else, but i also dont see them wanting you to be able to access your music/movies/apps from any computer - that enables an easier way to share these things and have them lose out on money.

yeah, i want to be able to sync photos and stuff to the iphone wirelessly over Wifi.

You guys are all talking about something different. There's no wireless syncing yet. The other guy was talking about how 8.1 was coming soon because the app "Remote" was just updated recently to support iTunes 8.1.
