Popular developer, Rogue Amoeba, is out today with an update to its Airfoil and Farrago applications for Mac that brings Dark Mode, Text to Speech support, and more.

Rogue Amoeba announced the updates in a tweet:

We’ve posted two updates today:

Airfoil for Mac 5.8.5 brings Dark Mode support, as well as easier capture of the Finder, Text to Speech, and more.

Farrago 1.2.5 also adds Dark mode support, as well as a slew of fixes.

If you’re unfamiliar, Airfoil supercharges your wireless audio output options on Mac. Meanwhile, Farrago is described by the developer as offering “robust, rapid-fire soundboards.”

To download the latest versions, click the Airfoil or Farrago in your menu bar, then choose “Check for Update.”

Rogue Amoeba has also noted that while it is working on making its applications compatible with macoS Catalina, users should stick to macOS 10.14 and earlier for full compatibility with Rogue Amoeba software.

Full Airfoil release notes:

  • Airfoil’s Audio Capture Engine (ACE) backend has been updated to 10.1. This update includes several fixes and improvements, for the most stable audio capture possible.

  • On MacOS 10.14 (Mojave), Airfoil now offers Dark Mode support throughout the app.
  • Smaller improvements and interface modifications have also been made to Airfoil’s Source selector, as well as the audio device icon.
  • Audio streaming to password-protected Shairport devices should now work as expected in all cases.
  • Airfoil now correctly handles multi-packet RTSP messages, which should solve some long-standing “RTSP” errors for certain rare devices.
  • A bug where the main window could get stuck on a disconnected monitor has been corrected.
  • Airfoil’s Help menu now includes a useful new Release Notes window, so you can see changes across all versions from right inside the app.

  • A new warning will appear if the Quit shortcut (Cmd-Q) is pressed while Farrago is actively playing audio.

  • VoiceOver will now correctly read the names of audio sets.
  • Farrago’s Help menu now includes a useful new Release Notes window, so you can see changes across all versions from right inside the app.
