Downcast 1.1.6

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Jamawkinaw Enterprises has released Downcast 1.1.6 [1] with added support for a variety of playback speeds from 0.50x to 3.00x (but, strangely, not 1.75x as that speed isn’t supported [2] by Apple’s framework). The podcatcher app also fixes a problem with displaying podcast and playlist settings more than once when running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or 10.9 Mavericks, resolves an issue that prevented continuous play from working, restores the Command-L shortcut for locking episodes, fixes a bug with using keyboard shortcuts on all lists, and fixes an issue with the Pause/Resume/Retry button on rows in the Downloads view. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store [3], free update, 20.6 MB, release notes [4], 10.8+)
