iTunes 11.1.5 is out with bug fixes, improved iBooks compatibility on Mavericks

Thanks. I've noticed some weird behavior such as iTunes just freezing up, requiring a forced quit. Not that often, though.

Downloaded and installed 11.1.5 from itunes.com, but after installation the about screen on itunes shows 11.1.4. I'm running windows 8.1 64bit.

edit- 11.1.5 is now showing up.

For Macs why would they not have just included this in the big security update for OS X 10.9.2 instead of another separate update? This seems redundant to me & maybe speaks to all of the teams in Apple not quite on the same page sometimes? Regardless I installed it.

iTunes isn't part of Maverics. It may come pre-installed on your Mac, but it's not part of the opperating system.
So I wouldn't say it's like right hand not knowing what the left is doing, it's just they are separate and unrelated things. It would be like the mechanic replacing your stereo when you bring the car in for an oil change

I said nothing at all about iTunes being part of the OS. I'm well aware it is an application & not embedded. My point was it could just as easily have been included in the update that was released a few days ago. Simple.

How can it be released with the OS update when it's not part of the OS.

I don't think you understand what you said.

But then the iTunes application update would have had to been in the Maverics update, and as you said, they are not combined or embedded. It's not the same code, nor is it even addressing the same bugs.
But if it seems redundant so be it; its installed already and all is well.

Exactly, there's always redundancy when we are talking security threats that affect multiple forms of communication but run on separate code.

One more time Wyatt & we'll leave this alone.

Updates are nothing more than a packet of software the OS unpacks & installs as necessary agreed? If you don't understand that no worries it's not going to end the world. Separate code or the same it could have just as easily been packaged together into the single update & distributed once. 81 MBs would not have been a much bigger chunk to add to the 500 MBs for the security fixes in 10.9.2 Apple released a few days ago. OS X could handle distributing the code to whatever bits of software needed it. That is a core functionality of UNIX & always has been. Small bite size morsels or large buckets of code are not a problem for UNIX as it can handle & unpack/distribute it as necessary for patches, security, or features.

My point, more an opinion really, is why not just release it all at the same time? OK? We good now? OK. I stated my opinion, like in the beginning that is all. Good day.

I'm really glad I can get notified of updates from iMore because I had to depend on Apple's update notifications I'd get them 2 or more days late!
... You might check into that Apple.

still waiting for the "info" tab sync to iOS device back to iTunes, so i can sync my contact just by group, not all of them with iCloud.
