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.
For more information about Apple's complete slate of new products and offerings, check out Phillip Swanson's report this morning covering the release of OS X Lion, updated MacBook Airs, and the new Mac Minis.

Good I suppose, but I don't understand why they couldn't have included iTunes 10.4 in the installation of Lion

Now if thy would only get 64bit support for Windows XP. I can't believe them idiots never made a version for that. That's the computer that I have all my free hard drive space on and can't use the home sharing from my apple TV.

The "64bit" version of itunes is just a 32 bit WOW application. Is this new version actually a 64bit application?

Also worth noting that the entire iLife has gotten an update enabling fullscreen, as has iWork.
If you answer NO to any other those questions, then STFU.
What do you hope to achieve by having a fully 64bit iTunes? Your music to sound better?

64bit is the only way to go, for ALL programs. I can envision a day when all that 32bit crap finally dies, and on that day I will pop open a champagne bottle and toast to its demise, laughing.

Jesus, and people wonder why Mac users pity Windows enthusiasts.
