Airfoil 5.1.1

Updating the Instant On component

Rogue Amoeba has released Airfoil 5.1 with preliminary support for macOS 10.12 Sierra thanks to the updated Instant On component (version 8.3), which Rogue Amoeba also added to the recent update of Audio Hijack (see “Audio Hijack 3.3.1,” 11 July 2016). The wireless audio broadcasting app also ensures the Advanced Speaker Options window reloads correctly, enables you to overwrite a custom EQ preset if you choose the same name, and makes sure that the companion Airfoil Satellite iOS app detects when iTunes changes its AirPlay selector. ($29 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, $15 upgrade, 13.8 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
