What happened to ian's iBeat?
Well, good things take their time - ian's iBeat is *not* dead! I'm still there, and I'm developing this fun tool in my spare time - and spare time is something I didn't have for the past three years... But now the time has come: The final version 2.0 will be soon available for download, including all features and functions You waited for so long! I'm currently testing the final version which still has some ugly bugs on Win XP. As soon I have removed these bugs, ian's iBeat 2.0 will be available! In the meantime, please take a look at the beta version, though it lacks the finest features...
