Apple has just released a significant update to iTunes, version 11.0.3, featuring a completely redesigned MiniPlayer, a gorgeous new “Songs View” that highlihgts album artwork, better support for multi-disc albums, and more. My favorite part is that the new MiniPlayer can be expanded to show an entire playlist (screenshots below via 9t05Mac)!
