iTmsBackup0.8.3

10 August 2004

Backup iTunes Music Store purchases.

Overview

iTmsBackup backs up audio files purchased from the iTunes Music Store. Purchases can be backed up to a hard drive or other removable media, allowing a more flexible backup solution than the CD-only backups of Apple's iTunes.

What's new in iTmsBackup

Version 0.8.3
  • Fixed bug where application would exhibit weird behavior when choosing menu items with main window closed.
  • Added menu item "Show Main Window" to "Window" menu.
  • Allowed main window to be made smaller than starting size.
  • Added Preferences panel.
  • Added checkbox in Preferences panel to allow application to remember the location of the last backup across launches.
  • Added ability in Preferences panel to restore application settings to factory defaults.
  • Main window now remembers its size and location across launches.
  • Version 0.8.2

    1. Added a progress indicator and label during location of the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file.
    2. Disabled "Choose..." and "Backup Purchases" buttons during location of "iTunes Music Library.xml" file.
    3. Added caching of location of "iTunes Music Library.xml" file.
    4. Edited online help to prompt user to remove old "iTunes Music Library.xml" file in the event the user changed the location of the file's parent folders.

    Version 0.8.1

    1. Fixed a bug where the application could not locate the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file if the path to the file contained an Alias.

    Version 0.8

    1. Rewrote code parsing "iTunes Music Library.xml" file in Objective-C (replacing Java code), resulting in faster parsing and a smaller file size for the application.
    2. Implemented automatic location of "iTunes Music Library.xml" file.
    3. Redesigned GUI, removing button, menu item, and field for choosing the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file, to reflect the change in the application's functionality (see above).
    4. Rewrote parsing code, fixing a problem for non-English localizations receiving an erroneous "No purchased music found" error.
    5. Implemented an integrated AppleScript causing iTunes to generate a new "iTunes Music Library.xml" file in the event the file is missing.
    6. Edited online help files to reflect changes in the GUI and application workflow.
    7. Edited tool tips for clarity.
    8. Removed Apache Xerces library and associated Java code from the application's bundle.
    9. Removed menu item to Apache Xerces license.

This app does exactly what is is designed to do. Nice job on an 0.7 release!

This beta version does not support localizations other than English. Running it will result in an error message: An error occurred parsing "iTunes Music Library.xml"! It is likely something is wrong with the file. (No purchases found in file!) I am looking for people to help with translation so the application can support other localizations.

What's the difference between this and just opening the "Purchased Music" playlist, selecting it all, and dragging it to a folder in finder?
