Under The Microscope

Public Betas of Our Apps for Use With Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

As discussed on Tuesday, not all of our apps are certified for full compatibility with Mavericks. We always provide information on OS compatibility on our Status page. As you can see there, Fission and Intermission are already fully compatible with Mavericks, but updates are needed for Airfoil for Mac, Audio Hijack Pro, Piezo, and Nicecast.

The good news is, we’re almost ready to provide public releases of these four apps, with full compatibility with Mavericks. As this requires major under-the-hood changes, however, we want to get the updates tested widely before we release them to all of our users. That’s where you come in, if you choose.

Update (November 14th, 2013): We’ve got some newer betas, and more details, here.

Waiting To See

If you’re wary of a public beta, that’s alright. Though we’ve tested heavily, anyone with a mission-critical setup is wise to be cautious. If that’s you, just stay tuned for official updates, which we hope to provide very soon.

    I installed the Nicecast beta and updated Instant On, and it did NOT ask me to restart. That’s the first time I’ve been able to update it without having to restart, and it’s a welcome change.

    Audio Hijack Pro…..Records! ….GREAT….But….instant record does not stop recording when button pushed…have to stop Hijacking…??? Recordings go into Finder and when opened right into iTunes but they cannot be deleted…..!!!

    Ron Gomes: We’re glad you like that. Unfortunately, we’re tracking a bug in OS X itself which may force us to require that restart as we have previously – we’ll have to see.

    Marc Barnes: I’m not sure what you’re seeing – hijacking will continue if you only turn off the Record button, but the recording itself will be stopped. That’s to be expected, and how it’s always worked. Hijacking from a source means its audio is coming into Audio Hijack Pro, while Recording means that audio is being saved – recording requires hijacking, but hijacking can be done without recording (to add effects to audio, for instance).

    As far as iTunes goes, that sounds like an iTunes issues. If you double-click and the file opens in iTunes, that’s a setting on your specific machine (you can configure what application handles file types by selecting “Get Info” on a file of a particular type). Deleting the file in iTunes is definitely an iTunes issue.

    If you’re having additional issues, you’ll want to get in touch via support.
