For packages in distributions, see the downloads page.

Please note that the Desktop version of gPodder 3 does not yet contain the MP3 player syncing feature. This is also the reason why the Ubuntu PPA won't be updated to the 3.x releases yet. Users depending on MP3 player syncing are recommended to stay on gPodder 2.20.1 until we get MP3 player syncing into the 3.x releases. When MP3 player syncing lands in 3.x, we will start updating the Ubuntu PPA again. Ubuntu users not requiring the MP3 player sync feature can use gPodder 3 packages from Debian Experimental in the meantime. See this blog post for more information and add your use cases and offer for volunteering to this wiki page. Thanks for your help!

  1. I'm using this version on Ubuntu 12.04 and while there are many areas in which it improved over 2.x line there are also some big problems.

    The new gpodder moved many of my files to unknown folders. Why it interfere in the content of the folders is beyond me. Who the hell thought it was good to add that thing.

    The files that were moved are mostly cuesheets and if those are in other folder then the file (.mp3, .wav, or other) they become useless. My podcasts are mostly EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and I'm downloading cues from cuenation.com to add tracklist and possibility to play tracks from the set. I ask you to reconsider dropping of this stupid behaviour in next version of gPodder or atleast adding option.

    In the old 2.x I could enable autoupdating podcasts on the start of gPodder it would be nice to have it back.

    Besides these two problems the 3.x line is definitely a good update to the one of the best programs that I'm using on Linux.
