iTunes 4.9 released, includes podcasting support

It’s official, iTunes 4.9 is out and available for download. As widely discussed, it includes podcasting support — it works very easily, though it’s obvious that podcasters will want easier ways to categorize their podcasts. Apple’s podcast specifications are here, which includes specifics on Apple’s RSS extension for adding meta data about your podcast.

Its ease of use is a big plus — this will dramatically increase the listenership of podcasts, which is most definitely a good thing.
