Apple Updates iTunes to Version 11.0.3 With New MiniPlayer and Improvements

newituneslogo.jpgApple has released an update to its iTunes music and media application, bringing it to version 11.0.3.

The update updates the compact MiniPlayer, adding album artwork and a progress bar, as well as better support for multi-disc albums and large iTunes libraries.

This version of iTunes comes with several new features and improvements, including:

- New MiniPlayer. MiniPlayer now includes a beautiful new view that showcases your album artwork. In addition, a progress bar is now built right into MiniPlayer.

- Improved Songs View. You can now enjoy your album artwork while in Songs view.

- Multi-Disc Albums. Albums with multiple discs now appear as a single album.

This update also provides performance improvements when searching and sorting large iTunes libraries.

The update weighs in at 187.50MB on the Mac, and is available through the Mac App Store, Software Update, and direct from Apple's Software Download Page.

The last update to iTunes was released back in February.

Stop with the "Safari feels snappier" posts. It's frivolous, off topic and will be subsequently removed.

Screenshots of the new MiniPlayer. I'm unsure what to make of it yet.

Also, the controls fade on the large view of the album artwork after a few seconds.

Isn't it funny that Apple take away certain features than add it back and call them updates. They could do this all year round and we'd be jumping and clapping every time they update something.

Finally! I'm really looking forward to this. It was really annoying to have multiple discs show when this could have been solved by just showing one single album.
