Since the introduction of episodes embedded images in Podcast Generator, one of the most recurring questions has been why iTunes and the iOS Podcast app don't show the artwork associated to single episodes yet keep displaying the main podcast artwork/cover art.
The short answer to this question is that, at the moment we write, the iOS podcast app and iTunes do NOT seem to implement the <itunes:image> tag (artwork) for single episodes, and they keep showing the main podcast artwork (see also discussion here).... read more

Podcast Generator 2.3 is here, it's lighter and faster than ever and it includes new exciting features:
Podcast Generator 2.3 is on its way... It took longer than expected but
this upgrade will be great!
Lighter and faster than ever, it includes brand new HTML5 audio and video players! We just added a bonus feature that our users have been requesting for a while: it is now possible to call PG via a cron job to automatically index new episodes uploaded to the media folder. This feature opens a series of new use scenarios. For instance, we implemented the possibility to publish an episode in a future date: upload multiple episodes at once, and release them in the iTunes store automatically on a given date or periodically.
PG 2.3 coming soon! Check out the beta http://tinyurl.com/podcastgenSVN
Ampps is a free software stack (Apache, PHP, MySQL, Perl & Python) that makes it easy for anyone to create a new web site using an existing open source application, customize it, and then publish it on the internet. Ampps is cross-platform (hence it can replace WAMP, MAMP and LAMP) and comes out of the box with Softaculous auto-installer, that allow to install a pool of great web apps (including PODCAST GENERATOR!) in one click. Check it out: http://www.ampps.com/
A new "About" page was added to Podcast Generator official website, with a description of the features and benefits: http://podcastgen.sourceforge.net/about

I just released a new version of podcast generator (1.4). This solves two vulnerabilities and features some minor upgrades:
If you upgrade from previous versions (e.g. 1.3) follow these instructions:
IMPORTANT: If you want to continue using version 1.3 Stable you MUST upgrade two files applying the following security fix: http://tinyurl.com/5vn3duv
Podcast Generator has been downloaded nearly 60.000 times since 2006 (over 14.700 times just in 2009).
The possibility of customizing Themes (or Skins) was introduced since version 1.0. However Podcast Generator currently comes with just two simple themes.
There are possibly thousands of users out there adopting this open source web framework (http://tinyurl.com/y9h98mf) and the majority of them still use the simple default theme...
That's a pity, new flavors are needed!... read more
A new version of Podcast Generator (1.3) has been released. It doesn't feature big changes compared to the previous release, however some bugs have been resolved and the upgrade is recommended.
Here is the Changelog for version 1.3:
- Solved multiple bugs if server has Register Globals ON (anyway, never enable Register Globals in your server!)
- Solved a bug (handling of "ampersand" character) in categories_add.php and categories_remove.php (thanks to Garrett Vogenbeck)... read more
