The Instant On component has been updated to version 6.0.3, fixing several small issues including one related to the Amarra iTunes plug-in.

We've fixed a crash which could occur when the source application was quit while audio was being captured from it. Phew!

The "Add To iTunes as Bookmarkable" script would sometimes fail. Now, it should always work. Or at the very least, work more often.

Some AIFF files could not be read by iTunes 11.0.0 and iTunes 11.0.1, due to a bug on Apple's end. That bug was reported to Apple and is fixed in iTunes 11.0.2 and up. Nevertheless, we've worked around it as well.

Nearly impenetrable! But all you need to know is that audio capture is more reliable than ever.

A rare issue with Recording hotkeys has been corrected, making it possible to use Option in shortcuts.
