Apple released iTunes 8.1 today. It was needed in order to have the new iPod shuffle work with iTunes. It also closed a security loophole that was a possible opening when subscribing to a malicious podcast that could lead to the disclosure of your iTunes username and password.
iTunes 8.1 is now faster and more responsive. Apple says you will enjoy noticeable improvements when working with large libraries, browsing the iTunes Store, preparing to sync with iPod or iPhone, and optimizing photos for syncing.
In addition, iTunes 8.1 provides many other improvements and bug fixes, including:
• Supports syncing with iPod shuffle (3rd generation).

• Allows friends to request songs for iTunes DJ.

• Adds Genius sidebar for your Movies and TV Shows.

• Improves performance when downloading iTunes Plus songs.

• Provides AutoFill for manually managed iPods.

• Allows CDs to be imported at the same sound quality as iTunes Plus.

• Includes many accessibility improvements.

• Allows iTunes U and the iTunes Store to be disabled separately using Parental Controls.
