  • The path control to select the tape library directory now lets you choose directories properly again in Mac OS 10.6.
  • High-Quality recordings are now recorded using the Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC) format. These recordings may be exported to popular uncompressed formats with no loss of the original recording's fidelity. Medium-Quality recordings still record at 128kbps AAC.

  • Lots of little visual tweaks to spruce up the UI.
  • Added some new search terms: 'quality:', 'date:', 'month:', and 'year:'
  • Beefed up the help documentation
  • TapeDeck no longer fails to record when the device set in the preferences has a different sample rate than the system-default recording device.
