Apple seeds iTunes 10.5.1 beta to developers

On the heels of the public release of iTunes 10.5, Apple has seeded its registered iOS developers with a beta version of iTunes 10.5.1. According to Apple’s release notes, “iTunes 10.5.1 beta 1 includes several performance enhancements and bug fixes, and is a required update for all subscribers to iTunes Match beta. iTunes Match is not included in the iTunes 10.5 GM release.” iTunes 10.5.1 beta is available now to registered iOS developers from the iOS Dev Center.

Why would anyone bother with v10.5.0 when v10.5.1 - which, given Apple’s recent track record, will be the first usable version - is so close at hand?

Hopefully 10.5.1 is out before iPhone 4S buyers receive their new phones.

10.5.0 is fine - and if you’re planning on getting iOS 5 tomorrow, you don’t have choice anyhow.

Besides, I’ve never had an *unusable* version of iTunes and I’ve upgraded to every single one of them as soon as I knew they were available. The only reason to not upgrade to the initial release is that you can usually bet the .1 fix to whatever minor bugs made their way through will be released within a few days. However, that’s clearly not going to be the case here since the first point release after today’s 10.5.0 is going to be withheld until iTunes Match is ready to launch, which isn’t until the end of the month. So, no, those 4S users will also be “forced” to use that (not) unusable 10.5.0 you felt the need to bash without evidence.
