So if anything it will be iTunes 4.9.5. I think we are a little off topic now.
Since when is 10 less than 9?Captain Code said:In math 4.10 would be the same as 4.1 which is less than 4.9. However, the period is not used as a decimal place but rather to separate major and minor version numbers.
4.10 signifies it's major version 4 and minor version 10. Minor versions being minor tweaks and enhancements and major being anything that would be a huge change to the application.
And...there's a difference? Says who? Where did this numbering convention come from if not math? It looks like a number and it sounds like a number, so I say it's a number! Not two or three. And that's the last I'm going to say on the matter (promise! )Pengu said:ok. quite simply. as it was stated. this is version numbers. NOT maths. clear and simple.
i'm not saying i don't like the iTMS, merely stating that, IMO the basic MP3 playing and organising capabilities are being shunned from improvement by all this adding of major new, almost unrelated features. the video thing needs to be seperate from iTunes. you wouldn't use your dvd player for playing cds - you'd use your cd player, so why use itunes for video - i want, in iLife '06, an app, like iPhoto and iTunes, dedicated to video. it's the massively lacking element in MacOS. sure you can use VLC or similar, but it's not apple is it? if there was a way of effectivley ripping my dvd library to my computer (decent image quality, multichannel encoding and tagging), then maybe i wouldn't use my dvds any more, like my cd library has become sort of redundant since adopting itunes. i'd use iVideo or whatever. it shouldn't be part of my music library. it has always felt awkward.Browni said:Major, I disagree, iTMS was arguably the best thing that has happened to Apple in quite a while, it was best to integrate it with iTunes, if you don't like it turn it off, as for Radio, it may not be used by every one, i know i use it quite a lot. Video in the iTMS, well its another enhancement. of iTMS. Plus the only reason it is in there is because it is not possible to play a quick time movie full screen unless you have pro, silly idea personally. Podcasts, are in my view just and extension of RSS for audio, plus its a thing that is going around the world right now, so it made sense for Apple to go with the flow. I agree that a major part of software development is the advancement of existing features as well as adding new ones, but there is only so far you can go on your own. Thats what the software is open source. If you want to add a new browsing feature, I'm sure that it can be done in either code or script, just a matter of seeing how.
(sorry if this seems like a rant, just voicing my point of view)
That would cascade forever... How does this look: 18.104.22.168.1fryke said:Hm. Apropos numbers and maths. 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound is 5 PLUS 1 and 7 PLUS 1 surround sound. *cough*... They wanted to make _that_ sound like a version number!
And back to the 4.10 > 4.1 thing: If after 4 comes 4.1, then after 4.9 should be 4.9.1.
