New iTunes 9. come and get it
 
go to itunes.com

What's New:

iTunes LP
The best thing to happen to fandom.
The visual experience of the record album returns with iTunes LP. Download select albums and experience a beautifully designed, interactive world right in your iTunes library on a Mac or PC — many are created by the artists. While you listen to your favorite songs, you can dive into animated lyrics and liner notes, watch performance videos, view artist and band photos, and enjoy other bonus materials. And become an even bigger fan.

Home Sharing
A better way to share.
iTunes makes it easier to share music, movies, TV shows, and more. With Home Sharing, you can browse the iTunes libraries of up to five authorized computers in your house, import what you like, and automatically add new purchases made on any of the computers to your own library.

The Redesigned iTunes Store
Check out the new venue.
The world’s #1 music store is even better. With a beautiful redesign and refined navigation, the new iTunes Store makes it easy to explore songs, movies, TV shows, and more.

iTunes Extras
Now featuring: Special features.
When you buy select movies from the iTunes Store, you won’t get just a movie. You’ll get iTunes Extras — a world of special features you can experience right in your iTunes library. Watch interviews and trailers, view photos, and more on your Mac or PC.

Genius Mixes
Perfect mixes come automatically.
Meet Genius Mixes. This new feature searches your iTunes library, finds songs that go great together, and creates up to 12 mixes you’ll love. All automatically. These mixes are like channels programmed entirely with your music. You may discover songs you never knew you had — and rediscover forgotten favorites.

Improved Syncing

A simpler way to sync.
iTunes brings new, more flexible ways to sync your media from your computer to your iPhone or iPod. And it’s easier to organize all the apps on your iPhone or iPod touch, because now you can do it right in iTunes, right from your computer. Shop the App Store on your computer, iPhone, or iPod touch. Then go to your iTunes library to arrange (and rearrange) your apps and add (or delete) Home screens. iTunes automatically syncs your new Home screens with your iPhone or iPod touch.

Many Other Improvements
Refinements that rock.
iTunes brings you even better ways to manage and share everything in your library. You can make your Smart Playlists even smarter. You can save iTunes Store items you want to purchase later in a new wish list. You can buy ringtones of your favorite songs directly from the iTunes Store on your iPhone and assign a specific song to a contact. And if you’re an avid social networker, it’s easy to tout your favorite music, movies, and TV shows on Facebook and Twitter right from the iTunes Store.

Am I an idiot? Ok - don't answer that. How is Genius Mixes different than Genius from the "old days" and how do you get to it?

Nope ;P

Also maybe it's just here in the UK, but the iTunes store looks exactly the same to me except for the black bar across the top. No pop up windows for 'quick access' or anything here!

EDIT: iTunes store seems to have turned into to new version suddenly!

You need to click on Genius on the bottom right of your itunes page, not on the left.

Same here.

Try updating genius.

I seem to be getting quite a few errors and bugs in iTunes 9. It has crashed at least 3 times tonight, and has failed to sync my iTouch a few times as well. Updating genius prompts a Network error with the iTunes Store. Hope it smoothes itself out, I don't think iTunes 8 crashed on me once!!

Wow, there is no way to sort by Artist, Albums, or Composers from the music tab any more??? It automatically sorts by Genres... That sucks!

going back to 8...
