Release Notes: This is a major release with lots of new features and performance improvements. Searching is now possible, and there's a new user management section that allows granting access at the playlist level. It is also possible to give permissions for users to rate songs, which will update the iTunes database. For power users, there's a bunch of new settings, logging capabilities, and a new command-line interface for Linux and Mac installations.
Release Notes: Support for AAC (.m4a) files, a redesigned client-side user interface, and the ability to show a song's cover art. On Windows and Mac OS X, the server attempts to find the iTunes XML config file. At startup, it is checked if the firewall/router allows for incoming connections. If not, a link to portforward.com is shown for help. The minimum Java version required is now 1.5 (used to be 1.6). Memory consumption was vastly reduced. An incompatibility with reverse proxy servers was fixed along with a performance problem with the Party Shuffle and concurrency problems.
