Since they missed Friday to release it, I'm going with Wednesday. It'll give them the most time to fix anything, while still keeping their October claim. It's Halloween, so people will be out and their servers won't crash from overwhelming downloads, like what's happened before(*cough*iOS5*cough*). And looking back on past hardware releases, they release software on a Wednesday and hardware on a friday (iOS 5 - Wednesday, iPhone 4S - Friday; iOS 6 - Wednesday, iPhone 5 - Friday; iTunes 11 - Wednesday, iPad Mini/ iPad 4 - Friday) I think Wednesday is the day. I hope it's not on Wednesday and iTunes comes earlier, but I think Apple will stick to Wednesday.
Not sure about sharing (I trust that it is broken if you say so), but my iPhone and iPad also stopped syncing over wifi at some point - I think roughly when iOS6 came out . I reckon they didn't bother to fix it in iTunes 10.7 if they're releaseing iTunes 11 anyway.
Also, NewsStand was bad enough at following its promises to download new issues automatically, now it never does that. Even on superfast and reliable wifi. Even when the device is plugged in overnight (geez, just make it check every 15 minutes - we don't care about energy efficiency in this case!).
I guess I'm in a wrong thread, though, there should be one called "How iOS6 screwed everything up".
P.S. - I didn't know you couldn't say H, e, l, l in these threads - is Apple making a turn for religious purity or something? :-D

Considering the last versions of iTunes (9 and 10) were released on a Wednesday, I wouldn`t expect it before Oct. 31, which is next Wednesday... It makes perfect sense... The difference being that previous versions were released earlier in the month... not on the last day...

Alright, before we go popping off to Apple about the delay, think about this: Would you rather have a buggy, premature rushed iTunes, or a well crafted, fresh iTunes? Why not wait, and see what happens. Sure, they said October... but they put it off for a pretty decent reason. Think about it.
Actually, a WSJ article about Eddie Cue said that it's getting released on the 29th... today. We shall see..

Frankly, folks, this update s****. In order to play an Album, I have to waste 18 - no, now 36 - minutes learning to get to a Discussion forum for instructions on how to do something THIS simple?! Someone had better be capturing the valuable feedback contained in these Forums or Apple will surely fail after tripping on the simple s***. JCP tossed Ron Johnson - a bit late, IMO. Please, get your s*** together. Or, don't.
You know what? After trying all of the answers in this Forum, this crappy software is still not playing the album - only 3 random cuts. This s**** BIG time, people. Do I need a Silicon Valley napkin to do something THAT simple?!? Enough is enough where iTunes 11 is concerned. Apple shares deserve to nosedive because something THIS simple (maybe I'M just simple but ...) is just not right ...
The playing random cuts thing sound slike you might have unchecked tracks. These are skipped during track to track playback. The track names are slightly greyed out in the album view. You can see the check boxes from the songs view or change the status via the rght-click context menu.
You can restore much of the look & feel of the previous version with these shortcuts:
- ALT to temporarily display the menu bar
- CTRL+B to show or hide the menu bar
- CTRL+S to show or hide the sidebar
- CTRL+/ to show or hide the status bar (won't hide for me on Win XP)
- Click the magnifying glass top right and untick Search Entire Library to restore the old search behaviour
- Use View > Hide <Media Kind> in the cloud or Edit > Preferences > Store and untick Show iTunes in the cloud purchases to hide the cloud items. The second method eliminates the cloud status column (and may let iTunes start up more quickly)
- If you don't like having different coloured background & text in the Album view use Edit > Preferences > General and untick Use custom colours for open albums, movies, etc.
If you should feel the need to roll back to iTunes 10.7 first download a copy of the 32 bit installer or 64 bit installer as appropriate, uninstall iTunes and supporting software, i.e. Apple Application Support & Apple Mobile Device Support. Reboot. Restore the pre-upgrade version of your library database as per the diagram below, then install iTunes 10.7.
See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to scan the media folder and catch up with any changes made since the backup file was created, or just add the media folder to the library. iTFW may be able to preserve ratings & playcounts if files have been renamed and therefore moved since the backup was taken.
tt2, thank you.
It took me a few minutes to guess that your screen shots are from a Windows system! Anyway, some of the tips worked okay for me, others didn't. Meanwhile, I found this Discussion just before replying to your post:
New iTunes - how do I play an entire album without having to go into "songs" and check all the boxes?
In that same discussion, I learned from
kilima Stockholm, Sweden
Please check that you have all songs CHECKED. This is why it's not working.
There is a misleading "bug" in this verson which is catching out a lot of people in that you can actually play an unchecked song by double-clicking it or placing it in the Up Next queue.
So, once again, have your songs checked and all will work. And, once again, you should have ALL your songs checked and only uncheck those you never want to hear.
Maybe it's me, but I still maintain that this is not an intuitive UI. More importantly, thank you for helping!
