beaTunes 4.0.23 - New Mood Plugin
Now, that the BeatGauge smoke has settled a bit, it's time for an overdue beaTunes update. Frankly, I would have posted this a while ago, but Apple recently messed up something in their
codesign tool, that prevented me from properly signing the OS X version. It's not that they have actually fixed this yet, but I'm glad I've found a workaround (the link unfortunately requires an Apple dev account).
For those of you who are importing mood data via Last.fm tags, this release offers an alternative. The AcousticBrainz project offers some calculated mood data, which can now be accessed via a beaTunes plugin (Preferences -> Plugins) as long as your songs are associated with MusicBrainz IDs (MBIDs). After installation, the plugin shows up as an additional analysis option. If you decide to install and use the plugin (sources here), please consider contributing to the project. They're doing cool stuff and deserve your support!
Anyhow. As always, you can download the update for beaTunes from the download section of the website.
