The appstore users have all been stuck on 1.2.9 for ages and ages so it is with no small celebration that 1.2.11 is out and is an update via the app store. If you're a MixTape "classic" user, you can download a new disk image.
In addition to the epic change list below we can now add some more bullet points:
Retina graphics. (oh yeah, this looks great)
Timer for live stream now shows time to playhead.
News items can be delivered directly to desktop.
Tune height clamping now works properly.
Problem with delete key not working on library fixed.
Problem with deleting last mix fixed.
Problem with control key being 'stuck' after a context menu fixed.
Plastic removed from album art view (speed and OSX UI changes).
First added track now displays preview.
Various behind the scenes fixes.
Some late breaking sadness is that it appears MixTape suffers from the Amazon S3 RequestTimeout bug (for which we are not the only sufferers). Obviously I'll be getting my head down and writing a chunked upload / retry kinda thing that will go in the next release. It does, indeed, never stop :)
The new MixTape release, 1.2.10 has been released for those who bought through the web (AppStore versions are currently in review). In many cases the auto-update mechanism won't work (long story) but there's a simple workaround:
MixTape has gone AppStore only. This means that any "in the wild" copies of MixTape will not be able to create trial users nor pay for existing trials - please pay via the AppStore.
Users who previously bought MixTape via the web will continue to be supported and, in fact, will be receiving bug fix updates sooner than AppStore users (because of the hideous delays in getting AppStore approval).
