Zune Desktop Software 1.3 Released
In the rush to get the 1.3 firmware for the Zune, some people seem to have missed the fact that the Zune desktop software was also updated to version 1.3. I wouldn't have known myself if Vista hadn't told me about the update - I'm not sure what it fixes/improves (why is the Zune team so secretive about this?) but the upgrade went smoothly for me. If want to force the software to update itself, click Options > Help > Check for Updates. It takes a surprisingly long time, but after a minute or so it should come back with an alert that there's a new version of the software and the update process will begin.
