What's new in version 2.1

The first thing I did is stop compiling for 32bit architectures like the first Intel-Macs, because Mountain Lion is only running on 64bit architectures anyway, which means less to download. Then I replaced the old-style code signing with Developer ID, which works in conjunction with the new Gatekeeper security mechanism. I also removed support for Growl Notifications to replace it with support for the new Notification Center in 10.8. Growl has been the source of problems in the past and I am taking this opportunity to remove the dependency on a what seems to be an unreliable 3rd party product. Another thing I had to remove is built-in support for AirPlay. Snowtape's implementation was build on reverse-engineered algorithms and deprecated cipher algorithms, which made the feature flaky and best and sometimes quite unreliable. I was also incompatible with a lot of 3rd party devices. The good news is that Mountain Lion comes with system wide built-in support for AirPlay. All you have to do is switch the audio output device in Sound preferences to the AirPlay enabled audio device of your choosing. I also went over the code and replaced deprecated functions with new and modern implementations and were also able to improve reliability and performance a bit.
