Apple released iTunes 10.5 beta 9 to developers on Friday. Apple said the new release includes a number of bug fixes and performance enhancements. The update is required for developers currently testing Apple’s iTunes Match beta. Additionally, Apple reiterated that iCloud libraries will be deleted at the end of the beta period. Apple said known issues include:
- The scan & match feature is not yet complete. Some songs may not match (even if they is available in the iTunes Store) and will be uploaded to iCloud. Other songs may match to a different version of the same song on the iTunes Store.
- You can only add music to iCloud from one computer at a time.
- After updating to iOS 5 beta 7, your music may fail to play. If this happens, turn off iTunes Match in Settings > Music, then turn it back on.

Several Samsung devices offered by Sprint — including the Epic 4G — are set to get software updates this coming Monday, March 21st, according to a tipster. Sound familiar? That’s because Sprint began pushing out the Epic’s update to Froyo last month on February 21st. Unfortunately, things didn’t go very well and Sprint was forced to pull the update a few days later. Needless to say, users were not pleased and they’ve been letting Sprint and Samsung know about it ever since. Exactly one month later, Sprint is finally ready to give it another shot. This time around, Epic owners can expect a new build (Android 2.2.1, build EC05) to be delivered to their smartphones as an OTA update. Users will be notified of the update over the four-day period beginning March 21st, and the update should take 20 minutes or less to download and 8-10 minutes to install. Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Transform owners on Sprint can expect to be notified of OTA updates on the 21st as well; the Transform will finally be getting Froyo and the Tab will get a minor housekeeping update along with Sprint ID support. Hit the break for all the juicy details including change logs.
