Among other things, this currently allows Rockbox to tell iTunes we can support WAV files recorded at frequencies not normally able to be synced to an iPod. This comes on the heels of (and as an extension to) the new USB stack inside Rockbox. The image in the article may not prove anything, but the code is available on the Rockbox patch tracker for any to play with. This, among other things, allows iTunes to sync to players without specialized scripts. For those who wish to use the iTunes music store to buy their newly DRM-freed music but want a little more choice in the hardware department, this could soon be the answer.
