Apple just released a new version of iTunes that comes with a couple of unexpected new features. The 11.0.3 update includes a new MiniPlayer, an improved songs view, and finally support for multi-disc albums along with some bug fixes.
New view for MiniPlayer from iTunes 11.0.3 update
The update for the MiniPlayer is by-far the biggest new feature. There’s a new MiniPlayer view that showcases album artwork much more prominently. The new view is quite a bit bigger than the original MiniPlayer view, but you can toggle between the two if you want.
Here are the full release notes on the update:
“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.”
