Vagalume 0.8 released, now with support for Libre.fm
Here’s how it looks (click to enlarge):
We also have a new logo designed by Otto Krüja:
Many things have changed since the previous version. These are some of the highlights (read the full list here):
- Implemented the Last.fm Web Services API v2.0
- Support for Libre.fm and other Last.fm-compatible services
- Support for Maemo 5 (Nokia N900)
- New logo and other UI changes
- Sleep timer (i.e. stop playback after X minutes)
- New configuration setting to download free tracks automatically
If you are interested in Libre.fm or the support for multiple servers you should read the Vagalume FAQ.
Very important for N900 users: as you may already know, Last.fm does not allow streaming music to mobile phones. If you are Last.fm user and you have a Nokia N900 then you should really read the FAQ (and also this post).
N900 users will also notice that the UI hasn’t been completely adapted to the Maemo 5 style. That is going to happen soon, but since I didn’t want to delay this release even more, this version uses the classic UI.
A Moblin version is also in the works. Expect a release soon.
Updated 15 Dec 2009: Some users are experiencing connection problems after upgrading to Vagalume 0.8. This problem has already been fixed, so expect a new version soon.
Updated 16 Dec 2009: I’ve just released Vagalume 0.8.1 with the aforementioned fix (see changes here).
Updated 21 Dec 2009: And Vagalume 0.8.2 is out, with one more fix for another connection problem (see changes here).
