New RagTime 6.6.4 for Mac and Windows
The update to version 6.6.4 brings significant internal technical changes that ensure that RagTime will continue to run flawlessly on future Mac and Windows operating systems. These are general improvements, updated image libraries (JPEG, PNG, PDF), and security enhancements (immunity against viruses in image formats).
A detailed list of changes can be found on the RagTime 6.6.4 installation media, in the “Read Me.pdf” file.

Icon preview of RagTime files under Windows and Mac
Since RagTime 6.6.2 we have been supporting Mac “QuickLook” as well as the Windows Explorer file preview, which both display document content in the Finder and Explorer, repectively. While many users appreciate this new feature, there is still the wish to display just the RagTime icons, as was the case in previous RagTime versions.

In the Mac's Finder menu go to “View” > “Show View Options”. The “Show icon preview” option allows you to specify whether icon previews, or the generic file icon is displayed.

Under Windows this switch is not required because the RagTime icon is always displayed with the file, which is not the case on a Mac:

Music paper with 4, 6, or 8 systems
You want to quickly write down an idea as a sketch or write down a rhythm, a melody, a chord sequence (for improvising) or some practical exercise for students in the classroom and what is missing: the appropriate “music paper” for it.
