Solving the problem of updating iTunes from SongKong on OSX

Hots on the heels of SongKong 1.19 we have SongKong 1.20 because I have just discovered an important bug in a code library SongKong uses on OSX for talking to iTunes.

SongKong uses Applescript to inform iTunes of changes, however because of an oversight later versions of the library SongKong uses no longer have the necessary calls to talk to the Applescript library. However if you have earlier versions of the library (as all my test machines do) then SongKong can talk to iTunes without problems..

Until today I wasn't aware of the seriousness of this issue, I thought the problem was only on a few isolated installations. If previously you have have been unable to update iTunes from SongKong on OSX this release should solve that issue .

Linux and Windows users there is no real need to update to this release as it only contains the OSX Applescript/iTunes fix and some minor modifications to debugging output
