Radio Downloader 0.20.2

I've just released a minor update to Radio Downloader. This fixes the most commonly reported crashes and adds a small number of minor enhancements.

For full details of the changes in this release, please check out the changelog.

Radio Downloader 0.20

I've just released version 0.20 of Radio Downloader.

The main change in this release is that the entire application and its providers have been converted from VB.net to C#. This due to better support for C#, to enable compilation on other platforms (with Mono), and to encourage contributions (as C# is more popular).

The release also brings some small enhancements and bug fixes. Notable among these are fixes / work-arounds for two issues with downloading episodes from the new BBC station Radio 4 Extra. For a full list of what has changed you can check out the changelog.

Please Note: Upgrading to version 0.20 from 0.18.2 or earlier will reset any application or provider options - this is due to the switch to C#. Your favourites, subscriptions and downloads will be unaffected.

Radio Downloader and Radio 4 Extra

Since BBC Radio 7 was re-branded to BBC Radio 4 Extra, there have been problems downloading episodes broadcast on this station in Radio Downloader. This isn't caused by anything hard-coded within the application, but by some of the metadata that the BBC generates altering for programmes on this station.

I have fixed the main problem which was causing all downloads from Radio 4 Extra to fail with an "Unknown Error". This fix is available in beta version 0.19, which I'm making available for the moment while I investigate the other issues.

I'll try and make another news posting at some point over the weekend when I've got a clearer idea of how easy the other issue(s) are to fix and rough timescales.

Radio Downloader 0.18.2

I've just made a bugfix release of Radio Downloader available.

This fixes the recent problems with the BBC Radio A-Z programme listing, as well as a couple of other small issues. For full details, see the changelog.

Issue 51 added to 8BS Online Conversion

I've made a further update to the 8-Bit Software Magazine Online Conversion. I've added disc 1 and disc 2 of Issue 51 to the conversion.

Radio Downloader 0.18

I am pleased to announce the release of version 0.18 of Radio Downloader.

This release brings two main new features - a 'Favourites' tab, which gives a place to store a list of programmes for quick access (without having new episodes downloaded automatically), and a word wheel type search against title and description in the Downloads list.

Additionally, a number of bugs have been fixed, including BBC Radio downloads no-longer being truncated at approximately 3:22 for some users, and a couple of resource leaks. For a full list of what is different you can check out the changelog.

Issue 52 added to 8BS Online Conversion

Another update to the the 8-Bit Software Magazine Online Conversion. This time I've added both disc 1 and disc 2 of Issue 52 to the conversion.

Site Tweaks

I've made some small adjustments to the site header to improve the layout, made the news pages more consistent, and adjusted the stylesheet to help the whole site work better for users who prefer larger fonts.

Also, I've added an additional stylesheet which should improve the browsing experience on mobile browsers, as they are becoming much more popular. This should make the site work much better than before on mobiles, but I've still got some more testing and tweaks to do.

Radio Downloader 0.16

I'm pleased to announce the release of version 0.16 of Radio Downloader.

The most visible change in this release is that the main views bar is now styled to display tabs instead of buttons, which makes the application more intuitive. The styling updates also include changes under Vista and Windows 7 to make the application feel more integrated.

This release also makes having Radio Downloader run on start-up per user and optional, and includes a number of other bug fixes and changes. For a full list of what is different you can check out the changelog.

Issues 53 and 54 added to 8BS Online Conversion

I've made another of my semi-regular updates to the 8-Bit Software Magazine Online Conversion - adding Issue 53 (disc 1 and disc 2) and Issue 54 (disc 1 and disc 2).
