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.

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.

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.

Radio Downloader 0.14.2

I've just released a minor update to Radio Downloader. This release does not include any new features, but fixes the most commonly reported crashes in version 0.14, along with a number of other issues.

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

Radio Downloader 0.14

I've just released an update to Radio Downloader. This resolves the AAC stream download issues experienced by non-UK users since the 20th May, and the problem of older downloads hanging and blocking newer downloads.

This release also brings customisable, sortable columns in the Downloads view which remember their chosen order and widths, as well as an optional new 'Duration' column. Status information is now displayed in Windows 7 using taskbar overlays.

There are quite a number of fixes for a range of other bugs, which are listed in the changelog.

Radio Downloader 0.12

I'm pleased to announce the release of an update to Radio Downloader. This resolves the MP3 download issues experienced by UK users over the last few days, as well as a number of other bug fixes and improvements.

This version has had considerable internal refactoring to make much greater use of threads for long-running operations (among other things). The result of this is that although the application appears the same, many of the actions that previously caused the interface to pause or hang now do not. This also lays the foundation for future enhancements such as configurable columns and sorting.

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

Radio Downloader Status Update

No sooner than I had posted the news yesterday I started finding out that most of it was wrong. I believe that I have now tracked down the problem, which as far as I understand is only affecting MP3 direct downloads, and doesn't look like it was intentional.

I hope to release an update in the next few days (all being well) to resolve the problem.
