This App is no longer supported, as you can read on the developer's site:
http://www.sillybit.com/libra/

“Libra is no longer supported

I am unfortunately unable to continue developing and supporting Libra. After careful consideration, the more recent versions of iTunes brought changes that would require a significant rewrite of Libra. This would require time and resources that I do not have. It is therefore with sadness that I must retire Libra. (…)”

The developer recommends using starting with option key (or keep using older iTunes) as an alternative…

Libra has worked flawlessly from the getgo. i find it much easier to maintain mulitiple libraries with this application than any other...including the new "option-shift" that itunes has integrated.

libra is set to open up at login. with the click of two buttons i can have the library open that i desire.

easy. simple. (yes, again, even more than the "option-shift" methond).

Thanks for the update creator!

Want to use multiple iTunes libraries for free? Hold the option key when launching iTunes 7. Ta da. (Same thing works for iPhoto.)

An excellent application. I use it all the time to switch between my iPod / AAC and Home Stereo / Apple Lossless libraries. And it now remembers preferences for both. Highly recommended

It would be nice if this app was released as a Universal Binary. It's been 3 months now...

Seems to work well! One thing, though: Libra seems to reset iTunes prefs back to the factory defaults. That is pretty bad behavior for a Mac app. The least it should do is warn about it.

I love this app! It's stable and has never given me any problems. I have the main music library on an external harddisc and two smaller libraries on the powerbook: one for my own music and one for my girlfriend's (so her music doesn't mess up my collection). It's well worth the money!

Very swift reply to iTunes compatibility issues. This application is indispensable to me as I house over 130 GB of music sorted in multiple libraries (Albums, Singles, Livesets, ...).

Hi there. I like Libra a lot, but it doesn't work for me anymore. I have the latest iTunes version and libra 2.1.3 doesnt work with it. No liobrary change no matter what I do. Everything was OK with libra 2.1

Can anyone send me the older version?
Thanx!

When Libra is running and you would like to make a new LIBRARY you can not see any window. It is hidden off the screen, I noticed that when using the EXPOSE feature, when all windows are shown. You are able to just type the name of a new LIBRARY and hit ENTER. A new library has been made. But when launching iTunes you don't see the new library.
