OSX is still not supported, sorry if you’re on OSX. I don’t have a machine to test on, and I need to be able to test before I feel comfortable making an actual release for that platform. I think it would be relatively easy to do, but I have to find a machine.
There is still a lot of work ahead of me. My next big focus is probably the decoder back-end. Flacs work great, but I don’t have full coverage of the other formats. I’d also like to get it minimizing to system tray, but that’s hard to get working on both linux and windows. Finally, the global hotkeys for windows are a little finicky, I hope to fix them up in the next release.
