    Apple Releases iTunes SDK for Windows

    looks promising. according to the help file, there are even methods for
    write access to rating and play count. this should allow for integration of
    these into slimserver, a feature which has been asked for quite a few times.

    I'd love a iTunes rating feature, where pressing 0-5 during playback
    sets the iTunes rating. That way I might stand a chance of getting more
    than the current tiny fraction of my songs rated!

    OS X iTunes has been able to set ratings through AppleScript for ages -
    now Windows offers a COM API too there's a chance of a cross-platform
    solution.

    Do we have a mapping from SlimServer songs back to iTunes database IDs?

    Phil

    PS Linux users won't have iTunes at all without a Windows or OS X
    server. And I'm sure somewhere there's a remote COM interface from
    Linux to Windows, maybe even from inside Perl... or was I dreaming?
