iTunes has received a small yet noteworthy update in the form of version 11.0.3 on both the Mac and PC, featuring a new MiniPlayer, the ability to view album art while in the Songs view, and a condensed view of multi-disc albums for those that still use CDs.

Apple shares that the new MiniPlayer includes a “beautiful new view” which displays the album artwork related to whatever song you’re playing. The MiniPlayer also now includes a song progress bar.

In addition to the above updates, Apple details that this version offers “performance improvements when searching and sorting large iTunes libraries” — surely a welcome change.

For the full change-log, look no further than below.
