Apple has released new versions of its iTunes media software for Mac OS X and Windows computers, addressing various issues and making stability improvements throughout.
iTunes 11.1.4 for Mac weighs in at 232.7 MB and requires Mac OS X v10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or later.
“This version of iTunes adds the ability to see your Wish List while viewing your iTunes library, improves support for Arabic and Hebrew, and includes additional stability improvements,” according to the company.
iTunes 11.1.4 for Windows deals with a different set of bugs involving the equalizer and libraries with a lot of content in them. Apple explains:
“This version of iTunes resolves an issue where the equalizer may not work as expected and improves performance when switching views in large iTunes libraries.”
System requirements include Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, 32-bit editions of Windows Vista or 32-bit editions of Windows 7 and Windows 8, or 64-bit editions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8.
You’ll also need 400MB of available disk space to install the Windows version of the software.
KB article HT6001 on Apple’s Support site also highlights a number of vulnerabilities addressed in these updates, most of which affect only Windows customers.
The only flaw affecting both Macs and Window PCs is “an attacker with a privileged network position may control the contents of the iTunes Tutorials window.”
The bug affects Mac OS X v10.6.8 or later, Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, and XP SP2 or later installations, and is described as follows.
“The contents of the iTunes Tutorials window are retrieved from the network using an unprotected HTTP connection. An attacker with a privileged network position may inject arbitrary contents. This issue was addressed by using an encrypted HTTPS connection to retrieve tutorials.”
