gPodder 3.9.2 "Canyonero" released

A new release of gPodder is out. This release improves UI startup performance as well as introduces our own podcastparser library that we use in gPodder 4 to the gPodder 3 releases -- this should improve the feed parsing performance and allow for better support of podcast-specific features like Podlove Simple Chapters and Paged Feeds in the future (some of these features are already in gPodder 4's codebase).

Here's what's new:
  • Fix tagging download extension (#148, patch by Eric Le Lay)
  • Improve YouTube cover art resolution (patch by Hiltronix)
  • win32-launcher: Fix crash when Python is missing
  • Sync UI: Update podcast list after sync (#136)
  • Port from feedparser to podcastparser
  • Set UI upper limit for episodes per podcast based on current value
  • Cache cover art thumbnails in SQLite database
  • Load/update the episode list model in the background
As always, a detailed changelog is available at gpodder.org/changelog/3.9.2.

gPodder 3.9.0 "Helium Levitator" released

A new version of gPodder is out! This release removes some old, unmaintained code and fixes some bugs and adds a new translation.

Starting from version 3.9.0, the N9 port is not supported anymore; the code is still available in the "harmattan" branch in Git if you need it or want to backport fixes yourself.

Flattr support was broken with the recent changes to Flattr's website, it is recommended that you use gpodder.net's Flattr integration instead if you want to use this feature.

For the Windows build, due to some Norton false positives, the auto-download feature for Python and PyGTK has been removed and replaced with a link to http://gpodder.org/dependencies, so users can manually download the dependencies.

Here is the list of changes:
  • Added Korean translation (by Byeongkeon Kim)
  • Device sync: Only fail if we can determine free disk space (bug 2052)
  • Enqueue episodes after download (Closes #133)
  • Ubuntu AppIndicator extension: 'visible' config option
  • gpodder.download: Ignore non-ASCII content-disposition header (bug 2059)
  • Win32-launcher: Remove download feature (works around Norton warning)
  • Remove WebUI, QML UI and MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan support
  • Remove broken Flattr integration (use gpodder.net's Flattr support)
  • Redesign about dialog
  • Preferences: Move video services to separate tab
  • Vimeo: Fix Vimeo integration

gPodder 4.6.0 now available on BB10 and Playbook

The Qt-related issues that prevented us from doing a BB10 build on release day were fixed, so the Blackberry Playbook and Blackberry 10 builds of gPodder have been uploaded and are now available in Blackberry World.

gPodder 4.6.0 "Industrial" released

A new version of gPodder 4 is out for Android, CLI and Sailfish OS. The Blackberry version didn't make it for this release (yet), due to some Qt 5 layout issues on Blackberry 10 that I haven't yet looked into.

Among the usual UI improvements, this release changes the previously JSON-based database for a SQLite3-based database on top of minidb. Migration from the old database to the new database is automatic the first time you use the new version. As always with changes like this, it could be that the migration doesn't work for some reason - in this case, let us know in the issues tracker.

Packages for Sailfish OS are available on the downloads page and the package for Android has been uploaded to Google Play.
