Apple Drops iTunes 7.7.1

Apple released iTunes 7.7 just before the iPhone 3G hit on July 11, and now Software Update is ready to serve us up iTunes 7.7.1. What's new in the point release? Apple provides their typical super-detailed notes:

includes fixes to improve stability and performance

Gizmodo points out that this release follows only days after Apple's FairPlay DRM was cracked for iPhone Apps. Coincidence? We'll see.

If you've already installed 7.7.1 -- like I have -- all that remains is to sit back and see if the devs find any interesting strings this time around, or if an even more welcome update -- iPhone 2.0.1 -- follows soon...
