Apple releases iTunes 11.1.5 w/ compatibility improvements & crash fix

Apple has released today a minor update to iTunes on OS X with a fix for a nasty bug that could cause iTunes to crash. The update also includes compatibility improvements with iBooks, Apple says.

The software update follows yesterday’s release of the highly critical OS X 10.9.2 release which filled an existing SSL bug that left users vulnerable to malicious attackers. Apple also introduced FaceTime Audio calling and contact blocking which debuted on iOS 7 last fall.

The update should be rolling out to OS X users through the Mac App Store.

  1. This update got rid of the option to convert songs to Apple Lossless (ALAC). Instead, it has now been replaced with “Create MP3 Version”… Really? MP3?
