Iconic Languages

beaTunes2 logo

Oddly enough, EA17 combines some pretty visible and some not so obvious changes. Starting with the obvious:

beaTunes has a new icon (designed by Jordan from OneToad Design)! After quite a while with the same (stock) icon, I felt it was time to get one that expresses better what beaTunes is all about. And since beaTunes is not a music player, a loudspeaker always seemed like a bad choice to me.

Additionally, I updated some of the other icons used throughout the application.

The second change is not visible and might not be visible for a while. It's localization. Yep, I started taking on the gruesome task of extracting all the strings so that beaTunes can finally speak to more users in their native tongue. At first it's probably just going to be German and (of course) English. Perhaps French will follow.

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: EA17 isn't even a beta version (actually, we are getting really damn close to that, though).

And here are the download links:

Note for EA16 users

There shouldn't be any problems.
