            Release Notes: This release is confirmed to work on Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger." It uses the system-supplied version of rsync on Tiger, which fixes an important bug. Now a choice is offered when multiple iPods are present at launch. Ownership is now automatically enabled on the destination volume. Settings no longer have to be redone when creating a new backup. The app is now better qualified to run on OS X 10.2. Slight speed improvements and tweaks were made to the code. The app was built with Platypus 3.1. It now features a slick new icon.
