The recent KRadio4 snapshot is one more important step towards the first KRadio4 release. Now the debian build mechanism and localization is working again.

KRadio4 (KDE4) snapshot 2009-02-20-r649

One more iteration step towards the first beta:) The previous snapshot has already been really usable, this one only improves some cosmetic stuff and a few minor bugs. For details please have a look into the ChangeLog.

I hope that KRadio4 is now really usable. A first beta release will be published very soon if no more sever bugs pop up.

Please test and report success and problems!

KRadio4 (KDE4) Snapshot 2009-02-18-r630

Progress on KRadio4 accellerated much since the long delayed
initial KDE4 port published with the previous snapshot. This
snapshot is now hopefully really usable, the ChangeLog lists a
quite long set of fixes of minor and major bugs, even including
two new features: RDS and shortcut support. Furthermore, the
settings necessary for PVR cards are documented much better
now in the config dialog, the WWW-FAQ and a readme file.... read more

KRadio KDE4 port (snapshot 2009-02-08)

After a long time of silence, kradio-snapshot-2009-02-08 has been released. This is an initial port to KDE4. It is not intended for productive use, however for developers who want to contribute fixes/patches and brave users who want to report excessive errors ;-). Please test and report problems and patches!

snapshot 2006-09-20 released

Finally, after some really busy time at work and shifting appartments, etc., I managed to spend some time of my vacations on kradio again. The result: A new plugin for basic streaming support (currently only raw format, but hopefully easily extensible for internet radio) that now allows PVR radio cards to be controlled completely by kradio, including /dev/video24. Furthermore, some important bug fixes have been included, particularly one for the station editing configuration page and a fix for the high CPU load problem which was caused by broken LIRC pipes. For details about the changes please have a look into the ChangeLog file. Please test and report problems, errors but also success ;-)

kradio-1.0beta3 released

kradio-1.0beta3 provides quite a bunch of bugfixes, with special
respect to LIRC, ALSA, buffer handling in general as well as
usability improvements during the first startup and two new
features called "active playback" and pre-recording. For cards
that don't use the line-in loop, active playback captures the
sound from a special device which is played back on the sound
card. With pre-recording, you no longer need worry about
starting recording too late: The last <configurable> seconds
before the decision are captured, too! ... read more
