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!

Can you please describe the problem in more detail on my support page and perhaps provide your logs?
