Looks like Apple is on an update spree, first Mac OS X Lion, then the new MacBook Air, Mini, Thunderbolt Display and now iTunes 10.4. Apple has began updating it’s music software, iTunes, on both Mac and Windows. This update is mandatory if you’ve just upgraded your Mac to OS X Lion and brings some new features and support for Lion.
The new update brings a full screen mode that is present in OS X Lion, some new design improvements and turns it into a 64-bit app. However, you will not get any of the features if you’re using it on Windows, except for some minor UI changes and bug fixes. The fullscreen mode in Lion isn’t like the normal full screen mode that you use on Windows. It uses a complete space to open the app, keeping your full concentration on the app and nothing else. iTunes 10.4 also has some features from the iOS app.
You can now use iTunes with OS X Lion’s new Full-Screen App capability, which allows you to use iTunes and other apps without distractions. iTunes is now a 64-bit Cocoa application on OS X Lion and includes a number of important stability and performance improvements. Some iTunes plug-ins may no longer be compatible with this version of iTunes. Please contact the plug-in developer for an updated plug-in compatible with iTunes 10.4
