Hi. Not sure if it's related to 10.8, but my Beatunes now beach balls when hitting the Next button in the Beatunes info window if the song is playing. To be clear: info window open, song playing, hit next button while song is still playing, Beatunes crashes.

    That is not good.
    How does beaTunes crash?
    Does it simply not respond anymore or is there actually some sort of crash report?

    Hi Hendrik.
    I have a Console crash report. Do you want it as a copy and paste in an email?

    If you can paste it into a TextEdit document and simply attach that - that would be swell!

    Also, in theory, upon the next beaTunes start, beaTunes will offer to send a crash report my way...

    thanks! Is this issue repeatable?
    Any chance you had an iTunes dialog open, while this issue occurred? E.g. the Get Info dialog?

    since foolishly downloading and installing Mountain Lion on the first day of release..... I've had nothing but trouble.... I don't know what everyone is raving about?.... sure it has some good features, but program after program.... don't work no more..... beaTunes is one of those.... I click the icon from my app folder and it tries to load.... I see the splash screen momentarily..... then....... nothing..... I'm downloading the 3.5.5 version right now in the hope it may fix things.....

    Thanks Hendrik,

    so far, so good..... at least it has opened and is running now....

    I ran into the VM Java memory thing and it crashed and I just found out how to downsize the parallel option.....

    it's currently analysing again so I may have to wait for it to freeze again before I can change this preference....?

    I've just managed to pause it, and reset the preferences to 2.... I'm restarting now...

    will let you know if I have any other problems..... thanks
