Erhnam tipped us that a new version of the controversial program Napster is out. A lot of improvements have been made to the software to track down MP3s, below is an excerpt from the Beta 9 FAQ†
Click on the CDNOW button that has been added to the application to quickly and efficiently purchase music of your choice.
And don’t forget about the Exclude Option we added to Napster Search. Just use a minus sign (-) before any terms you would like to leave out of your search results. If you want to exclude more than one term, make sure to use the minus sign (-) before each of those terms.
We’ve also added a Rename function in the My Files area so you can change the names of your MP3 and WMA files from within Napster. Just right-click on a file name within the My Files area, select “Rename File,” and then type in the new file name. (Notice that you do not need to retype the .MP3 or .WMA extension after the file name. The extension will be added automatically.)
