A Christmas gift for you

I’m pleased to announce the availability of new Debian and Ubuntu packages of the the latest version of the Last.fm client for x86 systems.

New versions have been released by the Last.fm team, being the current one. However the only official download for GNU/Linux is still several months old and lacks the newest features and bug fixes.

I have been combining efforts with John Stamp and we have prepared packages for Debian and Ubuntu. We’ll try to keep them updated with every new release from Last.fm (you can subscribe to this blog’s feed for announcements if you want to).

Go here for downloads and more information.

These packages are unofficial and they haven’t been tested thoroughly, so comments and suggestions are welcome.

Merry Christmas for you all!

P.S.: I’m sure that some of you know where I took this post’s title from. Highly recommended, of course, and not just for these dates 😉

    Thanks for your comments and support!

    Modesto, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this package because I know that you’re a Last.fm fan too 😉 Boas festas! (but why would I think that your comment is spam?)

    muesli, it’s you who deserve our appreciation for making the Last.fm client available as free software! And I’m sure that many people will thank a statically compiled binary 🙂

    cartman, we’re using the public repository and I don’t think that it’s months old. Version was made public 20 days ago:

    $ svn log svn://svn.audioscrobbler.net/client/tags/
    r2122 | erik | 2006-12-06 17:35:17 +0100 (Qua, 06 Dez 2006) | 2 lines

    new import – latest

    Just converted to Linux (hallelujah!) and I must say I was extremely pleased when I came across this. I’m a Last.fm addict so having something like this definately made the switch a lot more pleasurable for me. 😀
    Great looking out.
