Apple Releases iTunes 4.8 with New QuickTime and iPod-Syncing Features

Apple has released iTunes 4.8; you can download the free update from Apple's site.

(By the way, you don't have to enter an email address to get the new update. Simply uncheck the "Send Me Tons of Spam" boxes or whatever they're actually called, then click the Download iTunes for Free button.)

iTunes 4.8 can store and play QuickTime movies, and even provides a button for playing them back in full-screen mode. Other new features provide more control over transferring contacts and calendars to a connected iPod; these enhanced syncing features require Mac OS X Tiger.

My colleague Chris Breen has written up a fine first look.
