3) don’t know
Will this update come
1) soon (<1 month)
2) later (>1 month)

Soon has arrived. TapTools 4 beta 2 is a Max 6.1 Package and supports both 32- and 64- bit.
You can get it through the Package Downloader ( https://github.com/natcl/max_package_downloader )
or from http://download.74objects.com/taptools/index.html

Great TIm !
I changed the link in Package Downloader so it points to the tagged 4b2 version instead which seems safer.
Since it’s a big file, Max may seem to hang when getting it with the Package Downloader but if your patient it’ll go through !

The Package Downloader is super awesome — so thank you, Nat!

Anyone know what I’m doing wrong. Just downloaded 6.1.2 and TapTools 4 beta 2
Running on MacBookPro3,1; running OS 10.6.8; running Max in 32-bit
As the error message notes below, TapTools folder is located in the “packages” folder … and Max can find it.
Under 6.0 and TapTools 3 there was an “Authorize TapTools” menu item under Extras menu. It’s not there now under 6.1 and TapTools 4 beta 2 … but I guessing that it’s no longer necessary due to the change in distribution model (thanks Tim!)

Is [tap.applescript] part of the new release? the .mxo is not in the package I downloaded (but the helpfile is…)

Tried the TapTools 4 Beta and got this

tap.jit.source seems to be missing.

Jun 17, 2013 at 3:31pm

TapTools 4 requires OS 10.7 or higher.

Any idea where the tap.applescript.mxo could be found? – It seems not to be in the new release – is there an old one somewhere?

hi all,
any news on a version for Windows?
i feel often like the poor cousin of osX maxers :-(
