iTunes 6.0.2: Do Not Auto Delete podcasts

The most recent update to iTunes (6.0.2) brought a minor addition that podcast fans have been drooling over for quite some time now: the ability to customize the auto deletion of podcasts. As you can see in the accompanying image, if you right click a podcast in iTunes, you now have a new option near the bottom of the context menu: "Do Not Auto Delete." This can override any settings you've enabled to clean out podcasts after X number of episodes, which can be handy for hanging onto episodes of things like podcast novels such as Ancestor (iTMS link) and EarthCore (iTMS link). Since not all podcasts are time-sensitive episodes about 'what's going on this week,' it's nice to see this flexible level of podcast management arriving in iTunes.
