The team has published a collection of improvements related to the Beta Library which brings it closer to meeting or exceeding parity with the traditional Library. Playlist contents now appear in the Beta view, and you now have the ability to add/delete content, view and change playlist details, including privacy level. In the new Library you can now see folders and playlists that have been shared with you through the Authenticated user privacy method.

At this point there should be little need to switch out of the beta view and back to the old Library interface. (Hidden playlists are still a bit wonky - let us know how often you use them.)With the added search and sorting improvements in the new Library, we hope you find it more efficient and comfortable to use the new interface instead of the old. If not, let us know!

Along with a few bug fixes, the length of an iTunes RSS feed is now unlimited. You can now host your iOS-centric content on, and distribute that content through iTunes without worrying about hitting a display limit.

Finally, we upped our Flash player limit to 10.1. We know there are still some holdouts still using the version 9 series player (less than 1% of all viewers), but we are experiencing compatibility issues with Microsoft's Internet Explorer and the old Flash players, which is forcing us to increase our minimum player version.

Let us know what you think here or another Get Satisfaction topic and if you have a technical problem, creating a ticket and working with our technical support staff is still the fastest way to get help.

Some folder descriptions I use have long names which I cannot see in the left panel of the beta version. If there was a drag handle added so a user could re-size and/or reset this column width that would help. I seem to find that the beta file directory is slow to load and the original is faster.

Micheal Morrison,

To leave the Library Beta view, in your browner click the link shown below.

See a screencast tutorial on how the Library Beta view works here:

Both work just fine. You still have two viewing choices. The Beta view allows metadata key word tags which is very handy to search your content.
