Last week, we posted about an incompatibility between the 6.0 software update for Apple TVs and our audio streamer Airfoil. Today, we’re happy to say that issue has been resolved in Airfoil for Mac. Airfoil 4.8.1, just released, works fine with the new Apple TV update (and all other AirPlay-compatible devices).
All Airfoil for Mac users should update to version 4.8.1 immediately. You can select “Check for Update” from the Airfoil menu, or download it directly from the Airfoil for Mac page. Once you’ve got the update, you’ll be safe to update your Apple TV to version 6.0 as well.
Airfoil for Windows Update in the Works
Airfoil for Windows 3.5.2 has now been released, and restores the ability to stream to Apple TVs.
The Apple TV 6.0 update also broke the ability of Airfoil for Windows to stream to the device. Airfoil for Windows 3.5.2 is also in the works, and we hope to have it out shortly. So, Windows users, watch for an update very, very soon.
We need to take a moment to thank Jason over at Industrious One, makers of the Pandora/Last.fm/Grooveshark audio player Musicality (which has great integration with Airfoil, Airfoil Speakers, and Airfoil Remote). Jason clued us in to the fix here, and we’re terrifically grateful.
If you’re a Pandora, Last.fm, or Grooveshark listener, give Musicality a whirl, with a free trial right from the Industrious One site.
