Okay I whapped another 512Mb of RAM in my XP box that runs Slim Server so
now I have:

P4 2Ghz with 1Gb of RAM running on a Gigabyte board with 5.1.1 on it.

Commit/Charge on Task Manager shows as 214M/2305M, Slim was using >700,000K
and running constantly above 90% of CPU usage.

The box was dead this morning. Will changing to the latest nightly make any
difference or help?

"Apple's recent release of an iTunes SDK for Windows provides the
ability for third party programs, such as WinAmp and Windows Media
Player, to support the AAC file format. Ars Technica has additional
commentary. The SDK uses the COM interface and supports iTunes 4.5 only."

Would this ever be any use to us ? I have been trying to decide if this
is going to give us any advantages for intergration :)

I think certain cache changes were made after 5.1.1 which would halve memory
usage if you are using the Tag Database. The cache routines have been
extensively worked on in recent CVS as well so that may also help.

It should certainly be different and I'd like to thing it would help! :)
