64 bit beaTunes Beta for Snow Leopard

beaTunes2 logoFor a while now, Apple has handed out developer seeds of its next generation operating system dubbed Snow Leopard. Its focus lies on making OS X a true 64 bit operating system. For us developers this means that the old 32 bit QuickTime API will probably not work anymore.

And because the regular beaTunes still has some dependencies to QuickTime and is also still compatible with OS X 10.4, you can't just run it on Snow Leopard.

But! I'm working on migrating beaTunes to 64 bit. Unfortunately, as a side effect, I will have to drop support for OS X 10.4.

If you are running Snow Leopard, feel free to check out this 64 bit Early Access version of beaTunes. It still has some visual problems (e.g. the toolbar has the wrong gradient), but it should more or less work.


Feedback is very welcome!

Update: Seems like this build is working fine on Leopard 64 bit, but not yet in Snow Leopard. Analysis most likely leads to a program crash.
