Airfoil 4.9.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Rogue Amoeba has released Airfoil 4.9.2 [1], which updates the Instant On component to version 8.1.5 with some minor fixes. (Rogue Amoeba notes that Instant On is now required for most Apple apps in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, other than iTunes.) The wireless audio broadcasting app also fixes a bug that would prevent Airfoil from cooperating with Airfoil Remote, and fixes an issue where reconnecting to a speaker could fail if that speaker added password protection when already receiving audio. It also includes backend updates to improve compatibility with a new application — Airfoil Satellite for iOS [2], a free app that turns your iOS device into an audio receiver for Airfoil and supersedes the old Airfoil Speakers Touch for all recent iOS devices; learn more in this Rogue Amoeba blog post [3]. ($29 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members [4], free update, 15.5 MB, release notes [5], 10.9+)
