Not much new
EA18 provides some fixes for things that went wrong in EA17 - mainly localization issues, better database lock management, a fixed Vista uninstaller and a couple of other things. Not really much that's new...
And here's the obligatory warning: Before downloading and installing this, please make sure you understand what Early Access means:
- Absolutely no warranty for whatever
- Features may or may not work, appear, and disappear
- It may not be possible to migrate data to future versions (even though I make a reasonable effort)
- This version will cease to function 2 weeks after its release
- You cannot buy this version
Just so that there is no doubt about it: EA18 isn't even a beta version (actually, we are getting really damn close to that, though).
And here are the download links:
Note for EA17 users
The first time you start beaTunes 2 EA18, a message might pop up, saying that the database appears to be locked. It's safe to not unlock it.
