iTunes 9 troubles

beaTunes2 logoYes, iTunes 9 is finally out. Unfortunately, Apple does not make pre-releases of iTunes available to developers (AFAIK), so there are (almost always) problems. In some cases beaTunes seems to show a NullPointerException. I'm working on it...

Update 9/13/2009: It seems the NPE only happens when using beaTunes 1 - it's due to the fact that iTunes 9 no longer exports the Library playlist in its iTunes Music Library.xml. Some problems in beaTunes 2 remain and will be solved in the next update. I'd also like to advise Windows users to restart their machines before using beaTunes after the iTunes 9 upgrade or installation.

i get the NPE with beatunes2 95% of the times that i try to create a matchlist. matchlist dialogue opens, but the error is displayed as soon as i press okay. osx 10.5.8; itunes 9 (not 9.1).

a NullPointerException is a very generic error that can mean all kinds of things.
I believe the one that can happen when creating MatchLists is fixed in the latest beaTunes 2. Please update to 2.0.16.
If it still does not work, please contact support.
