iTunes and Outlook Plugins

In line with our policy on preferring in-line or plug-in support for Snarl rather than hand-cranking intermediary apps, I'm chuffed to be able to announce a new Add-In for Microsoft Outlook (tested and working on at least Outlook 2007 and 2010) and a new Plug-in for iTunes (tested and working on iTunes 10).

I'm particularly impressed with the iTunes Plug-in as this is my first foray into C coding since 1992 and, after a remarkable number of buffer-overruns, it's actually doing what it should - i.e. not crash iTunes immediately.

Both can be found here:

And will make it into the Applications page shortly.

SnarlMail and SnarlTunes should be considered deprecated, however I'll leave them available from the site in case anyone prefers to use them.  In the interests of open-ness, the iTunes Plug-in doesn't currently support displaying the album artwork so that might be a reason to continue using SnarlTunes for the moment.

As always, feedback very much welcomed.
