Catalina is here. It fixes many things, among them iTunes. On the other hand, it drops support for 32-Bit MacOS applications.
Consider the upgrade carefully.

Anything listed with
64-Bit (Intel): No will stop working after the
upgrade. Check before you upgrade, and consider what you will be losing
access to if you perform the upgrade.
On my box:
- Apprentice Alf DeDRM Plugin for Calibre
- Civilization V
- CoverScout 3
- Google Music Manager
- Google Photos Backup
- Kindle (1.23.1, locked from upgrades)
- Microsoft Office
- SongGenie 2
Some of them are unimportant, other things are quite critical, some of them can’t be updated easily.
At this point, for me this is a hard pass, and a lot of work to be done.
