It's been requested many times, but so far there just wasn't time. Now it's finally built-in: Configurable key formats.
This means, that beaTunes can now display the tonal key in several different formats (traditional, OK-Notation, Wall Clock, etc). And for those, who are still unhappy with the built-in formats, there is an API that allows you to create custom renderers.
For those of you, who use the KeyToComment-plugin, please note that there is an update available via the beaTunes plugins preference pane. The plugin now features the ability to choose a key format.
To avoid misunderstandings: beaTunes still writes the same standard information to Id3 tags—exactly as it is defined in the specification. But it is now capable of displaying this information in multiple different ways. In other words, the Id3 TKEY frame will not suddenly contain information formatted in OK-Notation, just because it is rendered as such in the beaTunes user interface. This is to ensure interoperability between different applications.
