Apple Computer in the coming weeks is expected to introduce a new version of its iTunes jukebox software for both the Mac and PC.
The new version will pack a maintenance and security update and may also contain added support for a new wave of international music stores, now seemingly overdue.
Additionally, company documents indicate that iTunes 4.8 will take over the responsibilities of transferring contacts and calendars to a user's iPod. Previously these functions were handled by Apple's iSync application.
According to sources, the software could debut as early as the first week of May.
