Radio Tray 0.3 released
Yesterday I released a new version of Radio Tray. Slowly, it’s getting to the point I want Radio Tray to be. In this version I wanted it to support most of the playlist formats used by online radios. This includes M3U, popularised by winamp, and the ASX, WAX and WVX formats (used by windows media player). Keep in mind that, although Radio Tray can interpret those playlist formats, the GStreamer libraries, on which it is built, may not support the media stream itself. If it gives an error about missing codecs, it’s probably a missing gstreamer plugin.
I’m happy that by version 0.3, Radio Tray now supports every format that I intended to implement. However, I plan to improve playlist handling a bit. The current implementation is a little naive and it needs some work to become more stable. I’ll be working on that for next version. I also plan to add some gui improvements for v0.4.
I’m also quite happy to see the acceptance of Radio Tray. It has received some very nice reviews, and being such a new and small project this really means a lot. I’ll continue to develop and improve Radio Tray, always by the principle that I like so much in Linux: do just one thing and do it well. So, let’s hope it keeps working well 🙂
