Rogue Amoeba has updated Airfoil audio transmission utility to version 4.8.2 with initial compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks, though Mavericks compatibility for the Airfoil Video Player is still in progress. (A Rogue Amoeba blog post offers more details on Airfoil Video Player compatibility.) The audio capture engine has also been overhauled to support Mavericks, and Rogue Amoeba warns that some audio capture sources may behave differently. (If you experience problems, you can submit feedback with this handy support form.) The release also updates the Instant On component to version 7.1 to improve System Audio capture and audio capture from Safari, supports enhanced metadata and remote control of Vemedio’s Instacast for Mac as well as iTunes Radio, ensures that Airfoil and App Nap play nicely with one another, and fixes an issue with the Airfoil menu bar icon not appearing at launch on Mavericks.
