Open Beta Test: SquareDeskPlayer V0.8.1 (Mac/Win) is now available!

We’ve reached a new milestone! Everybody can now participate in an Open Beta Test of SquareDeskPlayer V0.8.1 .  Since the last version, we’ve fixed a bunch of bugs, added some new features, and it’s ready for anybody to download…

This is still a Beta release, so it’s likely to have bugs, and some of the features are incomplete.  If you find any bugs, please let us know!

Download SquareDeskPlayer V0.8.1 for Mac OS X (.dmg, 32.5MB)

Mac OS X users:  I have not paid Apple for a Developer Certificate, so when you try to run the application itself, you might get a warning dialog.  Here’s how to open the application anyway.  You’ll only need to do this once.

Download SquareDeskPlayer for Windows (.exe installer, 18.3MB)

Windows users:  I have not paid Microsoft for a Developer Certificate, so when you try to run the installer you might get a warning: “SquareDeskPlayer… is not commonly downloaded, and could harm your computer”. You can just click “Run” here to go on.  If you get a second warning “Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. This might put your PC at risk.”, you can click “Run Anyway”, then it should run the SquareDeskPlayer installer correctly.
