Apple Releases 11.2.1 iTunes Update to Fix Hidden '/Users' Folder Bug

After Apple released OS X 10.9.3 yesterday, some users started experiencing a bug that hid their /Users folder. It appears that Apple has released a small iTunes update, numbered 11.2.1, to combat the bug. MacRumors forum member IzzyJG99 notes:


An update just popped up for me. iTunes 11.2.1 in the App Store. When it was done installing it had a little pop up about iPhoto Library. Now the User folder is showing up again.

Users can update to iTunes 11.2.1 via the updates tab in the Mac App Store or through OS X's "Software Update" drop-down menu.

Heh, this is iTunes 11 we're talking about.

You're asking if the steak is now suitable for vegetarians.

What mistake?

In 11.2 they added some drop down menus that should have been radio buttons and a dialog with yes/no action buttons. It's like an intern got ahold of the build and had some fun...

More importantly, why isn’t iTunes sandboxed? We, as developers, have to sandbox our applications to the extreme, but Apple can release a (mediocre) music player that screws up the OS?
