Key features include playlist filtering, keyword searches, an integrated songs browser, scrobbling, full screen mode with Apple Remote control, a status bar menu, global, fully customizable hotkeys, Apple-flavored bezels and Desktop Artwork.

"We are really thrilled by this update and think our customers will be too", says Fabian Kowalski, product manager and developer at "It adds many new exciting features and improvements, some of them frequently requested by our customers."
