re: ssc removal:
Yes. The ssc code is not in this. This is basically 0.2.1.1 with the updates strictly for iTunes 5, so it doesn’t have ssc or anything newer than 0.2.2.
Nightlies currently work with iTunes 5.
If you were using the last nightly before the sqlite migration, the patch for 0.2.1.1 should still apply.
