iTunes 4.9 Update Enhances Podcasting Features

At TUAW, opinions on Podcasting are split, yet it appears Steve Jobs has a clear stance.

According to Engadget, Jobs showcased iTunes 4.9 at the D Conference recently, introducing a significant new feature: podcast support.

This update will allow users to subscribe to podcasts of their choice directly through iTunes, and content creators can submit their podcasts to be potentially included in the iTunes Music Store, pending a selection process.

According to O’Reilly Radar, the anticipated iTunes 4.9 update should be available in about 60 days.
