First look at Mac OS 10.15 and Yate

Mac OS 10.15 beta 1 was released today and I decided to jump in for a quick look.  Surprise … there are issues. A relatively simple bug to fix is the fact that Yate preferences can’t be imported.  This is easy to get around and will be in the next release...

Yate v4.7 Released

Yate v3.17 has Been Released

Loves & Dislikes, changes to the Editing State and various other feature requests have been implemented. When I was first asked to implement iTunes Loves & Dislikes I quite frankly couldn’t see the need for them. However, at some point I realized that...

RIP Leonard Cohen
