App updates and Itunes 11 (PC)

So I stupidly installed itunes 11.

Luckily, it isn't terminally broken. There is one huge problem, though, and this post serves as a warning to anyone considering "upgrading".

In itunes 10, if I a) followed the store link from an app in my library, or b) looked up an app I own in the store, IF it jad an upgrade, the "downloaded" button would change to say "update".

Not anymore. Sure, some apps show up as having updates, but only a very select few. Otherwise, I have to KNOW that an app has been updated, delete it from my library, and re-dl...no doubt many of my apps will disappear from the store before I get a chance to have the updated .ipa.

Unless this gets fixed, I recommend anyone with large app collections to stay on itunes 10.

Oh, there are lots of other issues, mostly involving music. But everyone who's been following the tech sites probably already knows about those.
