Losing functionality with each new release

So this is a rant about the AppleTV and the new version of iTunes.
First AppleTV, the new software release that came out yesterday (2.1) has some bugs in it, one notable one is that new podcasts are not immediately designated with the blue dot if the podcasts section were selected on the AppleTV, which is annoying.
Second, iTunes loses more and more selection context with each new release. In the previous release when you had an artist selected, they remains selected and you only saw their albums when you went back to the music library after looking at the Apple music store for example (or podcasts). Now that is no longer the case, you get to see all the music in your library. And in the early days the scroll bars were not reset when you moved off a pane which they are now.
So what is it with losing functionality with each new release?
