beaTunes2 logoAdmittedly, it took a long time. But with with its brand new Spanish user interface, beaTunes 3.5.16 finally shows a friendlier face to Spanish speaking folks. Localization wasn't done by myself (that would have been awful), but by a small San Francisco-based translation studio. I really hope you like it! As always, please let me know, if something doesn't feel right.

Note that there is no special download for Spanish—just download the regular version. It will show up correctly, as long as your operating system is set to Spanish.

Other changes in the 3.5.16 release are:

  • Added support
  • Fixed issue for files without default player
  • Moved to MFSampledSP 0.9.3
  • Fixed NullPointerException issues with empty tags


Java 7 on OS X, Round 2

beaTunes2 logoBack in April I posted a Java 7 version for OS X, believing that it was about time for Java 7 to shine… Well, unfortunately I was proven wrong.

Back then version 1.7.0_21 was current. Recently Oracle release Java 1.7.0_40 and it seems to address a number of the issues that made Update 21 so bad: Files with Umlauts can now be opened, and the file open dialog can now be used to select directories as well. That's why today I again release a beaTunes version with a bundled JRE 7. If you are unsure what this means, please simply download the regular version. For those of you interested in Java 7, please give this a go. Subjectively it seems faster. What do you think?

You can get beaTunes for OS X with Java7 here: beaTunes-3-5-16-jre-osx.dmg

Please let me know, if you encounter any problems!
