Steps:

1. Open iTunes and Mini-Player, use it successfully

2. Close and Re-open iTunes holding down the Option key to switch libraries

3. Switch to another library on the same machine

4. Open mini-player, press Cmd-R

-- it looks like it's refreshing, but it doesn't. the mini player is still using the old library information --

 

Work around:

5. Quit and Restart Aflred

7. Open the mini-player, Cmd-R to refresh

-- the mini player library information is now refreshed properly --

 

Notes:

- The path to the current iTunes library is *always* correctly shown in Alfred's preferences.

- Refresh seems to simply always refresh the library that was in effect at the time Alfred was started

I can understand why this is happening as Alfred caches the iTunes library XML path at startup for performance reasons. Reviewing the code, this may not be strictly necessary, so I've added a ticket to look into removing the caching which should fix this issue.

 

Cheers,
