    Well if you're fussy like me you'll want to re-convert everything that you ripped while this absurd issue existed. And then send Apple an invoice for the amount of your time that they wasted.

    Impoted a few tracks and the size is exactly the same as before!

    Nice to get Smart Playlists sorted by bit rate functional again. Not too many discs to add again:-P

    Anybody heard any differences? I think it's just something within iTunes, not the AAC-codec.

    I haven't listened, but I compared the waveforms of aac and mp3 files encoded with 7.5 and 7.6. The result: Both codecs haven't changed between 7.5 and 7.6.

    As such, you shouldn't notice anything by listening either . This whole thing was just a matter of putting a '320' in the file-header instead of the actual bitrate.

    What's fixed? What are you all talking about?

    Do the new versions (of iTunes and/or QuickTime) make it possible to do either of these things:

    - true, unvarnished Constant Bit Rate (not ABR like we have now), or

    - unconstrained VBR?
