I don't see it on the Apple Developer website.

Not felling the new itunes design. The interface looks quite... amateurish.

It doesn't feel too different from iTunes 11. It does open quite a bit faster for me, but the design is more a refinement rather than something new. The new "Get Info" window is nice, although it still doesn't really add anything new, except for what appears to be custom fields.

 

Also note that iTunes 12 seems to be hard-coded to Blue even if your system is set to Graphite.

You mean style wise? I am fairly indifferent to it.

 

But iTunes 12 seem to refine the interface for the better.

I agree. it's not all that different from iTunes 11 beyond the "flattening" effect I mentioned earlier. And the underpinnings feel identical, which can be a good or bad thing, depending on how you look at it.

Dark Mode activation is now done via a check box in General rather than the drop-down from last DP. It also appears to work almost perfectly, minus third-party menu bar extensions.
