Introducing the Pod Race

Podcasters and Podracer users, now is your chance to get your podcasts into Podracer's sample subscription file. Visit the Podracer homepage at
<http://podracer.sourceforge.net>
for details on how it works and how to enter. If there is enough of a response to this pod race, I plan to hold pod races prior to release of each new version.

Podracer 1.4 is here

This is mostly a bugfix release with a couple of minor feature enhancements.

Podracer will no longer hang on a stalled download. It also follows redirections when retrieving feeds and enclosures. All URLs are now retrieved from a feed that has no line breaks. The subscriptions file now accepts and ignores blank lines and anything that doesn't start with a URL so that the initial `#' is no longer needed to specify a comment. There is also a new option to display the version number. See the changelog for other bugfixes in this release.

Debian finds Podracer

Podracer has now made it into Debian unstable
<http://packages.debian.org/unstable/sound/podracer>. A big thanks goes out to
Hamish Moffatt <hamish@debian.org> for helping Podracer become one of the first
podcast aggregators to become part of a major Linux distribution.

Also, some bugfixes and upgrades are on the way. Keep a watch on the Podracer
homepage, this news feed and Debian apt over the next week for these fixes.... read more
