On Sunday a few people noticed a "Download Now" button in the middle of Apple's iTunes page which, if clicked, linked to a download for iTunes 8.0 rather than the usual 7.7.
Others noticed download button as well, but the file it linked to had been removed.
One user who successfully downloaded the update tells AppleInsider that the build appeared to be an unfinished release candidate but he won't share it because he's concerned about repercussions.
"I’m not sure about the legality of releasing it to you guys yet," he explains. "I don’t want any trouble from Apple."
