iTunes 8.2 Update Fixes Bugs, Prepares For iPhone 3.0

Windows/Mac OS X: Apple's popular digital media player iTunes updated to version 8.2 today, most notably preparing iTunes to play nice with the upcoming release of the much-anticipated iPhone 3.0 operating system (you know, the one that's finally adding copy-and-paste, MMS, and notes sync). Apple doesn't offer much in terms of a change log on this one, other than:

iTunes 8.2 now supports iPhone or iPod touch with the iPhone 3.0 Software Update. iTunes 8.2 also includes many accessibility improvements and bug fixes.

I wasn't able to grab the update through the traditional Check for Updates dialog, but you can get the latest through the iTunes download page. [iTunes 8.2]

    I so look forward to each new point update of iTunes deleting all the apps and ringtones off my iPhone.

    After installing the iTunes update, I did a check of "about iTunes" just to confirm the verson number, and instead of the normal screen showing the version number, I got the "jewelcase 1.8" window with a link to their web site - how strange is that - did this happen to anybody else?

    Update 8.2 is very annoying. I usually use iTunes DJ, and now whenever I look at any of my playlists, it totally renews the songs in the DJ, which I don't want to happen. I'm going to rummage around in the preferences to see if I can turn this off.

    And oh yes, dozens of songs were removed. I wouldn't have known this if I hadn't synced my iPod and it reloaded all of the songs...well at least I _hope_ it reloaded all of the songs.

    after update I can't open itune... tells me I don't have permission or folder is locked. I have made sure every folder is shared and not locked, reloaded itunes and same issues - thanks APPLE.
    Nothing but problems with my MAC wish I had stayed with my PC now.....

    well after updating iTunes version from 8.1 to 8.2,that is wat required for iPhone software 3.0 updtae. I connected my iPhone to iTunes 8.2 and click on software update for my iPhone but it doesn't found any new updates for it.....

      Update is only just due to go live, and I suspect international customers will experience quite a bit of lag.
