What's New

Version 1.6.7:
  • Fixed a bug where Play Sound, on Mac OS X 10.5, was not handling sound file paths sent as Unicode text strings.
  • Fixed a bug where Play Sound would return a "player status" of "quitting" if you sent a quit command, but sounds were still playing. Now, Play Sound will return "playing" until all sounds are done playing, and then return "quitting" just before quit.


Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later
