Downcast 1.0.11

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Jamawkinaw Enterprises has released Downcast 1.0.11 [1], which adds an option to switch to audio-only playback of video podcasts. Selecting this option in the video context menu closes the video but continues playing the audio. The podcatcher app also squashes a bug that caused file extensions to be dropped for imported episodes, fixes priority play for playlists, ensures that statistics for partially played episodes are properly refreshed, fixes a problem that prevented the selected podcast/playlist from being reselected after a restart, and fixes multiple bugs that could cause crashes. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store [2], free update, 6.4 MB, release notes [3])
