Microsoft has just launched launched a new update to its Windows Phone 7 Connector software for Mac, Its still in ‘beta’ version, but it brings new features, other minor tweaks and numerous bug fixes. The present “Critical” update now allows users to ‘sync media content’ they’ve purchased from their WP7 handset to their computer and it also has a ‘new set-up procedure’, and brings new features to the file browsing tool, including ‘delete files on the device’, ‘previewing files’ that are on the handset and ‘manual file imports’ from the handset. But Apple Lossless encoded files still need to converted if necessary. It’s made using Apple’s guidelines for UIs, so it’s pretty good like iTunes.

# Performance improvements in sync/transfer process of media content
# Better handling of photos with Apple’s iPhoto and support for iPhoto 11
# Improved video preparation process
# Better support for pin lock and unlock of device
# Improved meta data transfer settings
# Fixed issues where some AAC/MP4 files doesn’t play on the phone
