New version in progress.

I am currently working on version 2.0 after not doing anything on pnr for a long while.

The new version will:
* require ices 0.3 (and therefor icecast 2.0),
* be a complete rewrite,
* support multiple playlists (playlist load, save etc.),
* contain a web and Windows frontend
and maybe more.

Stay tuned.

An icecast how-to is planned.

Stay tuned.

Web Frontend 2

The web frontend for admins is nearly finished.
Song browsing is finished and artist browsing is in progress.
The code is not very clean and needs some organization, but the first goal is to release the frontend for everyone who wants to play around with the database.

Stay tuned.

Web frontend progress ('n stuff)

The web frontend progresses well.
After some difficulties, all admin functions are implemented or in sight.

The first releases of the frontend will not be very flexible. Configurable colours, pictures and buttons, multi language support and configurable layout will be implemented later. The focus is now on the basic functions.

With the database, the maintenance programs and the admin frontend running, the focus will be on icecast and the ices perl module.... read more
