New TinCanJukebox Release 20100224 with Skins

Skins! We've finally added proper skinning support to tcj. All you artistic types, please show us how to properly design a site :) See the howto for details. We'll include any decent submissions in future releases. Also in this release; PLS playlist support, the most excellent JWPlayer (non-commercial only) with visuals, improved logging and art import logic. Enjoy!

Format support release of Tin Can Jukebox.

We have completely re-architected the streaming logic to make down-sampling more robust and to en-able transmorgification of other file formats (flac & ogg to start). You can now play flac and ogg natively, or have TCJ transmorgify them to mp3 on the fly, downsampling as needed to fit your bandwidth limitations and to be playable on all players. Enjoy!

Summer's almost done, new coding has begun! TCJ 20090817

Google may have the 'summer of code', but we practice the summer of sun. and beer. and bbqs. and, well, anything outside. Which means development work has been slightly slower than a sloth, but much faster than a drunken three legged monkey. Here's a release to grease the wheels (of the computer chair) and lube the brain with something other than alcohol. It's actually important, because among some minor enhancements there's a fix for a security hole found by a white capped script junkie.
While we've been slow, the request list continues to grow, so rest assured that more features are on the way, with a slight delay (as summer hasn't completely gone away :)
