Release 0.0.7: Let there be Mini support!

A few changes in this release: Support for GMA950-based video hardware, like Mac Mini and some MacBooks. Until this point you’ve had to live vicariously through your larger-mac’d brethren. No longer. Scott kindly helped me out with a remote Screen...

Audio hardware poll

I’m looking for some input into the names of audio outputs on different Mac models (e.g. “Internal Speakers”, “Line Out”, etc.) I’m especially interested in the names of your digital outputs. If you could post them in the comments I’d...

Fix for video problems on ATI

For those of you who experience a green screen when viewing videos, download this new version. I’ve disabled the ATI-specific OpenGL renderer, since (a) I’m not quite sure what its raison d’être was and (b) it was causing trouble on...
