Apple today released iTunes 11.3.1, fixing two separate podcasts bugs that caused subscribed podcasts to cease updating with new episodes and that caused iTunes to freeze up when browsing a list of podcast episodes.

itunes_11_3_1

iTunes 11.3.1 addresses a problem where subscribed podcasts may stop updating with new episodes and resolves an issue where iTunes may become unresponsive while browsing your podcasts episodes in a list.

iTunes 11.3.1 comes almost a month after the release of iTunes 11.3, which added improvements to iTunes Extras, including new content for HD movies like behind-the-scenes videos, short films, image galleries, director commentary, and more.

iTunes 11.3 can be downloaded via the Software Update Mechanism in the Mac App Store or Apple's iTunes website.

I used to love the way podcasting worked in both iTunes and the old iOS music app.

Apple has slowly butchered it into complete uselessness to me. I finally went and bought the Downcast apps for OS X and iOS and while not perfect, much better IMO.

Maybe they pushed this through because they're tired of me Reporting and explaining crashes five or more times a day because of podcasts.

(No, I don't really believe that, but boy am I glad about this update.)

I swear that the older iTunes versions would list the earlier episodes that I haven't downloaded, and even after this update *some* of the subscribed podcasts still don't list earlier episodes. It seems odd that functionality would be so inaccurate...

Hope this also fixes the horrible track stuttering if you're playing tracks from an iPod though iTunes.
