Apple has released software updates for iTunes, QuickTime and Front Row. An iPod update is also available.

iTunes 7 is a full version update which ushers in all the new features Apple made available in its media browser, management and purchasing application.

These include games downloads for 5G iPods, a new way to navigate iTunes libraries using album covers, called Cover Flow, and true automated gapless playback. It also lets users sync libraries between authorised computers using their iPod.

QuickTime 7.1.3 is an important release that delivers numerous bug fixes and addresses critical security issues. This update is recommended for all QuickTime 7 users and is required for playback of content purchased in the iTunes Store.

The Front Row 1.3 update provides for improved iTunes compatibility.

The new software is available through Software Update and direct from Apple's support website.
