HomePodI am sure that the AirPort Express has probably stolen a little of their thunder, but MacSense is not sitting idly by while Apple gets all the attention. Macsense has posted a new firmware update (Release 2 Beta) for their HomePod device (which I reviewed in March 2004):

In an effort to timely provide new software for interested HomePod users to try, we’re offering beta release software here. Any bug report is welcome. Please direct any issues and functional enhancement requests to support@macsense.com.
Release 2 is the biggest release since HomePod’s debut in January 2004. We have worked hard in the last 6 months, adding new functions and fixing bugs. We appreciate those of you who took the time to write us to tell us about what you like and don’t like about HomePod. There are more than 40 major new functions and numerous bug fixes added to Release 2. We listened and made the HomePod better. Here is a sample of what’s new in Release 2:
