Apple has released an update to iTunes that will supposedly fix stability issues that some users have been experiencing. This emergency bug fix update follows a recent trend in which Apple releases software that is seemingly not ready for release, such as in the case of OS X 10.4.1, which was released just days after Tiger became available. The update is available via Software Update.

    iTunes 5 features a new even more powerful instant search, including the new Search Bar which helps you find exactly what you are looking for in iTunes or from among 2 million songs on the Music Store, folders for organizing playlists, and new Parental Controls for music, music sharing and podcasts. iTunes 5.0.1 features several stability improvements over iTunes 5.
