Controlling iTunes in Revolution Using COM and Applescript

The newsletter article in question starts with a link to the beta  
program, where you can, for a limited time, still sign up and get the  
latest beta for free to try out this tutorial. Of course, when we  
actually ship 2.9 this will no longer be an option.

Regrettably, we can't make this stack compatible with 2.6 because 2.6  
does not have the necessary feature set. We keep on developing  
Revolution to bring you the features you want. I cannot imagine the  
outcry there would be if we said ok, we're no longer adding any new  
features because this will leave older versions behind... well  
actually I can :) But it wouldn't last long because we'd be out of  
business within a month or so of such an announcement!

I hope you can find a route to getting your upgrade. If you have  
difficulty please do write to support, I'm always happy to try and  
help you find a way.

Warm Regards,


PS Its nice to get some feedback on the newsletter! At least someone  
is reading it :)
