Rogue Amoeba has released Fission 2.2 with support for importing more audio formats. The audio editor can now import MPEG layer 1 and 2, AIFF-C, Ogg Vorbis, Shorten, RealAudio, Windows Media Audio (WMA), AMR, QDesign Music, WavePack, and Monkey’s Audio. The update also fixes several crashes with the Batch Converter, reports file sizes in powers of ten (matching the Mac OS X Finder), removes outdated references to QuickTime importing, and now always displays the Start window at launch (and if the window is manually closed, Fission will remember not to open it until the next launch). ($32 new from Rogue Amoeba with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 14.3 MB, release notes)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
