Airfoil 4.7

Rogue Amoeba has released Airfoil 4.7, adding a menu bar-only mode to the popular network audio streaming app for the Mac. By default, Airfoil appears in both the Dock and the menu bar, but you can now choose to have Airfoil appear exclusively in the menu bar and eliminate its icon from the Dock. The update also brings remote control support for version 2 of’s desktop app, corrects a conflict with Sibelius, and displays metadata in the Airfoil Speakers menu. It also now correctly displays output device names containing the @ character. ($25 new, free update, 9.7 MB, release notes)
