I still experience troubles with Dockart
I have to click on the options in iTunes and the enable dock art panel. Than the current album shows, but won't change with the next song from a different album.
I run Mavericks, iTunes 11.1.3 and dockart2.2.
Any suggestions?

Great to have this Back in itunes11. This is a great visualizer with a great developer who is gracious in every way. I donated to this developer but he refused saying he wants the money to go to his favorite charity so I donated there. He is one very special guy!!

I was wondering. I have `dockart for a couple of years now, but it doesn't work anymore on iTunes 11.0.5.
I downloaded Dockart 2.2. But I cannot find the Plugin folder where I'm supposed to copy the bundle.
Any suggestions? I really miss it.

DockArt does not work on Mavericks. Hopefully, an update is or will be in the works.

If you select options for Dock Art and click ok it will show the current album playing. But if you change album the last album stays there unless you go to options again and choose ok then again the current album cover displays. Only since 11.0.3

I hope it gets fixed. This app is literally the only reason I have a MacUpdate profile--so I can comment on how great it is.

DockArt 2.2 which works with iTunes 11.0.3 should be available soon. Thanks Gregory!

DockArt 2.2 is now available at the link, and I've submitted the update information to MacUpdate. For those who are curious, the change in iTunes 11.0.3 is that it no longer sends "idle" messages to plugins other than the selected one and only when it's enabled. I was using those messages to manage the transition from one image to the next. The lack of responsiveness in the iTunes window if you told it to "show" DockArt was iTunes itself ignoring the clicks in the window's content area because it expected me to handle everything going on there.
