This release doesn't add much in the way of new features to the application itself, just the ability to save displayed images in formats other than Windows Bitmap. However, the big change is that it has been ported to the Qt framework so it can now run under Linux as well as Windows.
Additionally, there are
.msi installable packages available for download for Debian-based Linux distributions and Windows respectively.

I've finally made another update to the 8-Bit Software
Magazine Online Conversion, after a gap of nearly 5 years! Oops, where does the time go?

I've just released version 0.28 of Radio Downloader. Unfortunately, the main change in this release is the removal of the BBC Provider but there are also a couple of small bug fixes.
I have also taken the opportunity to move the source code from a Subversion repository on my desktop to a git repository on GitHub to make it easier to contribute. My plan is to also move the bugs from Bugzilla to use the GitHub issue tracker (if feasable), so please bear with me while I make these changes.
