With Microsoft attempting to compete with Apple with Zune from November, Windows Media Player 11 has been released to coincide with the forthcoming launch of their hardware audio player. This is the software player, an updated version of the media player that's built-in to Windows XP and will ship as part of Windows Vista, in January. Indeed, the new Windows Media Player 11 looks like a preview version of the new Vista user-interface.
What's new in the latest Windows Media Player 11? Apart from a visual re-design, it works with the Microsoft Urge service so that you'll be able to download tracks from the Internet (but not play on your iPod). Whether content downloaded via Urge and through Media Player 11 will play on Zune is another matter as that's going to use it's own proprietary system.
If you're a big fan of Windows Media Player or simply want to see the new version for yourself, download from here.
