Hey all -
I just barely discovered a field visible on iTunes called the Release Date. I love this because there are some artists I love to have a playlist play in the order of when the song was released. Anyway, I got all excited in iTunes to update this field on many albums...but, it turns out, I can't edit it. I can't even seem to edit it by clicking twice on the field when viewing my library in "Song" form.
So my next thought - beaTunes! I bet that can change the data because it changes everything iTunes won't let me. But alas, I searched all over beaTunes for Release Date and could not find it.
So, my official suggestion - let's get the Release Date field in beaTunes and make it editable! Can it be done?

the release date exposed by iTunes in unfortunately read-only (r/o) as shown in the Script Editor screenshot attached. I know this is macOS, but Windows support is worse.

Dang it. Dang it all. How silly! I hope it will one day be writable.

Apple has pretty much abandoned the scripting interface for iTunes on Windows. While this might be supported at some point for macOS, I have my doubts that it will ever be supported on Windows.
Even on macOS, this would probably depend on someone filing a bug report/feature requests.
