    Will iTunes recognise that I am running the beta software?
    Are there any differences between the final release and the GM?

    Thanks

    I had the 4.2 GM and my iTunes is now downloading 4.2.1 official release. It recognizes that you're running a beta version...

    So does that mean there are no changes in the final release?

    I know in the past I have had the same problem with iPhone's and ended up just doing a restore because iTunes didn't think it needed an update even tho I wasn't running the latest copy.
