I have just released version 0.8.4 of Radio Downloader. This is the second bugfix release in the 0.8 series, and does not include any new features.
The fixes in this release allow the most commonly reported MP3 download errors to display informative error messages. For full details, check out the changelog.

I've just updated the 8-Bit Software Magazine Online Conversion to include Issue 66. I have also tweaked the navigation to be clearer and enable navigating from an item to its parent magazine instead of just up to the index.
17 January 2010
Today I have released version 0.8.2 of Radio Downloader. This is a bugfix release, and does not include any new features.
Most of the fixes relate to direct MP3 downloads, but there is also a fix for a crash caused by a missing My Documents folder. For full details, check out the changelog.

I've just updated the 8-Bit Software Magazine Online Conversion to include Issue 65. Another update is a fix for the mapping of fraction characters and pipes in the converted Mode 7 pages.

I'm pleased to announce the release of Radio Downloader 0.8. The main feature added with this release is that BBC Radio programmes are directly downloaded as MP3 instead of Real Audio. This requires far less CPU power, and is able to download BBC Local and Nations Radio programmes again.
The direct MP3 download does not currently support re-encoding the downloaded MP3 files to other bitrates and frequencies, so I have added a setting in the BBC Provider options to disable the direct download option for users who require this.
This release also brings a small number of other bug fixes and enhancements, which you can find in the changelog.
05 November 2009
Today I have released a new version of Radio Downloader. This resolves an issue with available episodes for a limited number of BBC programmes not being found, as well as fixing the most commonly reported error encountered when downloading programmes.
This release also adds the ability to use sub-folders in the downloaded programme file name template, and a number of other fixes and enhancements, which you can find in the changelog.
Please Note: There is a data loss bug in older versions of Radio Downloader, which causes the program database to become corrupted when updating between versions. This is fixed in version 0.6, but reverting to an older release of Radio Downloader (which is normally something that I would advise against) will cause your database to become permanently corrupted!
08 September 2009
I've just released a small update to Radio Downloader. This release fixes the problem with selecting new multi-episode programmes that I mentioned previously.
This release is the first to benefit from the recent changes to the installer - just download and run the installer, and the old version will be uninstalled automatically.
31 July 2009
I'm pleased to announce the release of Radio Downloader 0.5.8. This fixes the problems with browsing for BBC Radio programmes, and adds the ability to specify the MP3 encoding options for BBC Radio programmes. It also includes quite a number of other bugfixes and enhancements which you can find in the changelog.
This release also removes the automatic update feature, as it was unfortunately proving too time consuming and difficult to support. However, Radio Downloader will still notify you of new versions, and you can be kept up to date with the new Radio Downloader news feed. To make the process of installing updated versions easier, I've streamlined the installer and laid the groundwork for future releases to be installed without having to uninstall the old version first.
26 June 2009
Today I have released an update to Radio Downloader. This is mostly a bugfix release, which should also resolve the problem selecting or downloading any BBC Radio programmes - see the changelog for full details.
This release should also fix an issue experienced by some users, which causes updates to repeatedly fail. If you are currently experiencing this problem, uninstall Radio Downloader and download and install the latest version (this will not lose the items in your downloads or subscriptions list).
If you find Radio Downloader useful, I would very much appreciate your donations to cover my costs.
25 March 2009
Today I have made available a point release of Radio Downloader. This fixes a crash when minimizing the application (sorry!), as well as resolving a small problem with the statistics in the Downloads view.
