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
As always, a detailed changelog is available at gpodder.org/changelog/3.9.0.

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.

gPodder 4 coming to Android

Yesterday, I've ported gPodder 4 to Android. This uses Qt 5 and Python 3, as well as the latest development version of PyOtherSide. Since then, I've also fixed some bugs related to font rendering. This means that gPodder 4 will be available in Google Play in a few hours. This is an early port, and gPodder 4's UI is still missing some features and platform integration, but the basic functionality works. What is known to not work (and what I'd like to see fixed in future versions):
  • Notifications / playback integration (so you can pause/skip from your lock screen)
  • Headphone disconnect notification (so gPodder pauses playback on disconnect)
  • Back button integration (so hitting the back button navigates between pages inside the app)
  • Text input fixes (depending on input method, this is a bit spotty at the moment)
  • Activities / URL schemes / intent integration (open gpodder:// URLs, feeds, etc...)
  • Opening of video files with external applications (like on other gPodder 4 platforms)
The source code is of course also available: https://github.com/gpodder/gpodder-android
