  • Grooveshark fixes. Grooveshark changed stuff. Musicality broke. I fixed it. Enjoy!

Version 1.2.7 | Release Date: 2011-04-12 | Download
  • Pausing Last.fm. Last.fm recently added the ability to pause the music (before, you could only stop it), breaking Musicality's play/pause controls. This is now fixed, and you can pause and resume Last.fm all you want.

  • Last.fm Growl fixes. If a song didn't have cover art, its Growl message would appear very late. This has been fixed.

Version 1.2.6 | Release Date: 2011-03-23 | Download
  • Grooveshark fixes. Grooveshark now stores information about your music collection on your computer, rather than downloading it every time. This is a nice change, allowing Grooveshark to start up more quickly. Unfortunately, it broke Musicality, which could no longer find the information it needed to show the Growl messages. This has been fixed, and an updated version has been submitted to the App Store.

Version 1.2.5 | Release Date: 2011-03-17 | Download
  • Coming soon to the Mac App Store!. Musicality has been submitted to the Mac App Store. If all goes well (and why wouldn't it?) it should appear after the usual 7-10 day review process. Those of you who purchased Musicality already (thank you!) have no fear: updates will continue to be delivered through the usual channels. And, for those of you who prefer to roll old school, our Fastspring store remains open for business.

  • A new icon! Yes, that last one worked but was rather uninspired. This handsome new bird was designed by Rossy Topalova.

  • Visual enhancements. In addition to making things look better, I've cleaned up the landing page and the keyboard preference screen to make room for upcoming new features.

  • Bug fixes. Most notably, Musicality's song tracking is now more resilient to Safari updates.

Version 1.2.4 | Release Date: 2011-02-14 | Download
  • Improved the reliability of Last.fm scrobbling, particularly for Grooveshark.

  • Added a new keyboard shortcut option to redisplay the Growl message for the current song; find it on the Keyboard preference pane. Now you can see what's playing without having to switch back to Musicality.

Version 1.2.3 | Release Date: 2011-02-01 | Download
  • D'oh! I broke the song tracking for Grooveshark's "My Music" and "Popular" playlists, causing Growling and Last.fm submissions to stop working. Here's a fix for you.

  • While I'm at it, the toolbar state (hidden or visible) will now be remembered for you.

Version 1.2.2 | Release Date: 2011-01-31 | Download
  • Your Grooveshark theme and preferences will now be properly saved.

  • Last.fm will now restart correctly after being stopped. You no longer have to open the application and pick a new station first.

  • I now do a little better job of sharing the media keys with other applications, like VLC or QuickTime.

  • Adobe Fireworks has a bug that causes its mouse selection features to stop working when an application is running (from someone other than Apple) which needs the media keys. To work around this, Musicality will now stop listening for the media keys while Adobe Fireworks is running.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented song plays from being rated if Grooveshark's song queue pane was closed.

  • I removed the minimum window size, so you can really dial it down if you want. I'm still planning on a proper iTunes style mini-player view at some point.

  • Got rid of the "failed to access Apple remote" console messages.

  • Added separate Growl notifications for playing a song, and for playing a song which you've previously rated up (liked), so you can use different notification styles for each.

  • Some minor improvements to how control events are sent to Pandora.

Version 1.2.1 | Release Date: 2010-12-04 | Download

No sooner do I get Grooveshark into Musicality then they go and roll out a spiffy new design and break all of my hard work. The humanity! Here's a new version to make it all better.

Version 1.2 | Release Date: 2010-11-28 | Download

Grooveshark! Musicality now supports the excellent Grooveshark music service, in addition to Pandora and Last.fm.

Version 1.1.3 | Release Date: 2010-11-19 | Download

Last.fm made some changes to their site which caused Musicality's keyboard shortcuts to stop working. D'oh! This release gets them working again.

Version 1.1.2 | Release Date: 2010-09-29 | Download
  • Last.fm logins are working again. I may also have fixed the issue where Last.fm spins indefinitely and never starting playing—or maybe they pulled the ad that was causing the problem. If you run into it again, please let me know.

  • Finished working around the visibility issues (Flash widgets don't redraw after window has been minimized or hidden) introduced by Flash 10.1.

  • Control of the Apple remote is now properly handed over to iTunes when it starts playing.

  • Now pauses iTunes playback before Musicality starts playing.

Version 1.1.1 | Release Date: 2010-08-26 | Download
  • Mostly worked around a Flash 10.1 bug that causes the Flash movies to disappear when the window is minimized or hidden. It can still happen if you close/hide/minimize the window before the Flash window has had a chance to draw; if it does, just scroll the window a bit and the movie will redraw.

  • Fixed a bug that would cause Musicality to crash if Last.fm submission failed.

  • Plugged a few memory leaks.

Version 1.1 | Release Date: 2010-07-06 | Download

  • Now works with ClickToFlash out of the box; you no longer need to whitelist the Pandora and Last.fm websites.
  • Last.fm song tracking has been improved; Growl notifications should no longer miss songs.
Version 1.0.2 | Release Date: 2010-06-10 | Download
  • Fixed a bug that caused Musicality to intermittently crash for registered users.
