Apple releases iTunes 10.5.1 beta 2, supports iTunes Match on Apple TV
It looks like despite the "end of October" launch estimate at the iPhone 4S event, iTunes Match still isn't quite ready for public release. Apple has released a second beta of iTunes 10.5.1 so developers can further test iTunes Match.
The update addresses the usual "stability and performance improvements," but it also enables support for iTunes Match on the Apple TV. Beta testers have claimed that the previous iTunes 10.5.1 beta still had quite a few problems with regards to iTunes Match, so we should probably be happy that Apple "missed" its deadline instead of releasing iTunes Match to the public before it's fully baked.
When iTunes Match is ready for public launch, the service will cost US$24.99 per year and allow users to store their music libraries in the cloud, including songs not purchased via the iTunes Store, with easy access to the entire music library from any device associated with the user's iTunes account.
