iTunes podcast redirect bug fixed

Jerry Stratton, March 2, 2006

My iTunes RSS subscription to the overall Mimsy RSS feed just picked up the New Grub Street PDF file without losing the Mimsy podcast URL. It appears that either the February 15 or the March 1 update to iTunes fixed iTunes’s redirect bug.

In response to iTunes updates podcast URL incorrectly on redirect: iTunes will update a podcast URL if an enclosure URL redirects to another URL.
