I've been seeing that alot. iTunes has some HUGE memory leaks now. I had 500MB active memory before a reboot I just did with nothing running.

How about inactive and wired memory?  OS X will keep used memory around for a time as inactive if you exit an app.

I had to downgrade. iTunes 7 was crashing every time I changed songs. I wonder how long it will take for 7.0.1 to be released.

Safari is the big hog there.  Still, lots of memory usage isn't a bad thing or a memory leak, per se.  It could be that the VM manager just doesn't want to swap stuff to disk right now.

Brixton--Corripio asks you before adding or replacing artwork.   Did you uncheck that particular option via the preferences?

Well, you were absolutely correct re: the source of the problem, although I don't recollect looking in the prefs before so maybe that was the default?

It would be nice to be able to manually add a URL to the source list, so that (for example) us chaps from the Old Country could add Amazon UK or similar..

Personally, feelin' big love for iTunes 7.0 but I do think it requires a minor point release for a few irksome issues, specifically that untidy RAM usage.

Yeah, there seem to be some major problems concernings iTunes memory usage. I have heard reports of people with 2 GB RAM to get error messages for insufficient memory...

I noticed something weird: is it possible that iTunes 7 not only adds covers to the tracks, but also completes missing ID3 tags?

I have some tracks with incomplete tags, for example "Epic" from Faith No More, that was included with my original dual USB iBook (yes, Apple actually bundled music with their computers in the past...) or "Symphony of Destruction" that I ripped off a sampler. To be more precise, these were tracks with incomplete tags, because suddenly most of the tags are suddenly completed.

If your willing to deal with a few qarks for now sure. However, if your on a slow internet connection I'd say wait for 7.0.1.

The only thing I don't like about 7 is if you have a black desktop picture, and are using the coverflow view, there is no defined edge.

Also -

Where's the 'import' button gone when you've got a CD inserted? Sure the menu command is still there but it's less straightforward. It's almost as if Apple want you to get all your music from, I dunno..The iTunes Store or something..

Plus. The search field is greyed out when you're in Radio. I'm sure it used to work in ye olden days.

No, it just moved to the lower right corner, adjacent to the "Eject" button, and became a little less obvious.

Something had to given since Apple put the view buttons on that level.

I think this is because in the Library, that button would become browse. They would prefer us to use coverflow, so they push that button off to the side.

They finally updated it so that the versions now include iTunes 7. Submit your feedback.

Anyone else having problems viewing the equalizer ?  It's either invisible or a solid white block that doesn't move/do anything [but responds to cmd-w].

And how do I erase the "Music" selection in the library listings ?  All I want it to display is my playlists....it's obvious that it's music..it's an mp3 player !!  It's a waste of space and makes it cluttered at the top.
