Apple releases iTunes 8.0.1; Apple TV 2.2

In other software news Apple also released an Apple TV software update (version 2.2) that adds the new Genius playlist feature from iTunes 8 and the last round of iPod to Apple TV. To use it, hold down the play/pause button while playing a song and you'll see a dialog to "Start Genius," or add to an on-the-go playlist (pictured).

Apple TV 2.2 also fixes a vulnerability that could allow a "maliciously crafted movie file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution." You can get the Apple TV 2.2 update from Settings > Update Software or just by waiting for the weekly software update check.
