Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has updated Audio Hijack Pro to version 2.10.6, which also updates the Instant On component to version 6.0.2 in order to improve audio capture from VMware Fusion (as well as other unspecified apps). The latest version Audio Hijack Pro also improves capture from the Zoiper and Bria 3 softphone apps, adds ID3 tags to AIFF recordings for viewing in iTunes, fixes a bug that caused future timers to fail to be scheduled, addresses multiple AppleScript support issues, corrects display of the 4FX plug-in in the Effects area, and restores audio capture from iSight cameras. ($32 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.6 MB, release notes)

Thanks for letting your readers know. This is one app I've never regretted purchasing.

I have v2.9.9 installed, and when I ask it to check for updates, it tells me I have the most current version installed.

Any thoughts, anyone?

I'd recommend just going to Rogue Amoeba's site, downloading the trial version (which will be 2.10.6, I imagine), and installing it over the version you have. It should pick up the license details fine.

Thanks. I'll give it a try!
