beaTunes 4 is out!
I'm very happy to announce that after a year filled with lots of work beaTunes 4 finally saw the light of day today. Compared to version 3.5 there are a bunch of changes—most are improvements of existing features. Please note, that after multiple years of free updates for 3.x, the upgrade from 3.x to 4.x is not free. However, owners of beaTunes 2 and 3 licenses can count on significant discounts.
When updating, please let the database re-organization run through to the end to avoid database corruption. Even if this takes a while. Should you run into any problem, please let me know.
You can download the release from the brand new website.
Most important changes in 4.0.0
- Semantic music player
- Completely rewritten BPM, key, and color algorithms
- Acoustic dupe detection (requires prior calculation of fingerprints)
- Configurable playlist visualization
- Last.fm scrobbling, tag import, and mood inference
- Playlist import
- Completely overhauled UI
- Find and replace in textual metadata
- Improved scalability
- 64-bit support for Windows
Thank you for your continued support!
