Munich (Germany) / San Mateo, CA (USA) – September 6th, 2006: The
overall application functionality within CoverScout 2.1 has been
optimized. CoverScout 2.1 now offers an advanced search function, an
integrated size slider as well as new contextual menu items.

The search function has been extended now allowing the user to search
not only for artists but also entire albums. This enables the user to
be even more flexible. The inlcusion of a size slider, located
between the library browser and the artwork inspector, allows the
possibility to shrink and expand the preview size of the artwork
found. (The library browser lists the iTunes library content, devided
in a list of albums on the left and a list of all tracks of the
selected album on the right. The artwork inspector displays the
applied artwork for the selected album or lists artwork results.)
Additonally, equinux has added a few new minor features designed to
increase the usability of CoverScout – it provides new contextual
menu items to let the music play or to view the source of your music
files in the Finder. To conclude the 2.1 update a couple of bugs have
been exterminated. The issue causing covers to be displayed upside
down in 10.3.9 and 10.4 has been eliminated. Additionally, the issue
resulting in an Apple Script error when assigning art to multiple
albums has also been extinguished.

To enjoy CoverScout 2.1 and all new features iTunes 6.0.2 or higher
has to be installed. CoverScout users will be asked for the update
the next time they start the application. CoverScout is available for
purchase at
