Airfoil 4.5.5

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has released Airfoil 4.5.5, a minor update to its popular remote audio transmission app. The main focus of the new version is the correction of several issues related to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, one of which is a severe crash. In addition, Airfoil now sports improved compatibility with Google Talk, Muse Controllers, and Radium (although the latter requires an as-yet-unreleased version of the Internet radio player app). ($25 new, free update, 11.3 MB, release notes)
