Hey Everyone,

OpenSong Beta 2 is now available on the downloads page.
This is mainly a bug fix release.
Most notably this release addresses how OpenSong

OpenSong will now attempt to create the folders, or continue to run with limited functionality if the folders cannot be created.

However there is one exciting new feature:
Automation API for remote control purposes using REST over HTTP and/or WebSocket.
For a full description of the API see http://opensong.org/d/api. The current implementation supports all information retrieval operations (GET). (thanks to Vwout for this)... read more

OpenSong v1.7 Back Up

Hey Everyone,

The OpenSong v1.7 Release is now back up for all
platforms. They unfortunately had to be taken down due to recent attacks on SourceForge. If you downloaded any of the files prior
to them being taken down, please delete them as they cannot
be considered safe, and download the new release instead!
Thanks!

V1.7 Temporarily Withdrawn

The OpenSong development team has withdrawn the V1.7 release for all platforms after issues with downloading have been reported. We believe this is due to the work the SourceForge team is doing to protect the site and recover from an attack that was detailed in their blog entry found at http://sourceforge.net/blog/sourceforge-attack-full-report/

The OpenSong team will make the V1.7 release available as soon as it is possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
