Apple says this about the new version of iTunes:
”This update adds a new Composers view for music, improves responsiveness when syncing playlists with a large number of songs, and fixes an issue where purchases may not show up in your iTunes library. This update also includes other stability and performance improvements.”
In other words, except for Composers View, all the improvements are under the hood. But Composers View is cool.
To activate Composers View, you go into Preferences. This gives you a new button along the top, between Artists and Genres. When you click on this button you'll see all the songs composed by the person you're interested in.
For example, many country singers (like Kenny Rogers) use the works of composers. Suppose you liked the song “The Gambler” and were looking for more songs composted by Don Schiltz. Composers View now gives you an easy wall to find what other songs in your library were composed by him.
To update your current version of iTunes to the new version of 11.0.2, just click Help and Check for Updates in the Menu Bar above the Music button. If the Menu Bar is not visible (which it isn't by default), click the little down-arrow in the upper left corner of the screen, then click Show Menu bar. If you run into any trouble, click iTunes Support.
By the way, this update is free!
