Beta release 2.1.6

There has been lots of refactoring and bugfixes in the latest releases - without changing much of the interface or behaviour. It's still considered beta quality release, because of some crucial internal changes.

  • The plugin system has been remodelled to simplify extensions.
  • New channels for,, UbuntuUsers were added.
  • Playlist parsing and conversion has been completely redone. Which now permits more practical exporting of whole station lists. In particular the a new "Export all" plugin simplifies exchanging streams.
  • An experimental RadioTray plugin allows direct bookmarking to another application.

  • Documentation and project infos have been updated.
  • Version 2.1.6 also fixes a few bugs with the bookmarks and search feature.... read more

Streamtuner2 first stable version 2.0.0

Streamtuner2 is an internet radio browser. It displays mp3 streaming stations by genre from SHOUTcast, live365, Xiph and Google directories.

Apart from the new logo, this release finally adds a nice search function. Context menus now make most station features available. Also there's now an editor for entries, and the bookmark handling was fixed, allows to delete radio stations.

Internel APIs have been simplified. And caching and settings data are now really stored in JSON format, even though that's slower. SHOUTcast category refreshing has been fixed. The redundant directory provider homepage button was removed.... read more

streamtuner2 beta version 1.9.9

Streamtuner2 is an internet radio browser. It mimicks the older C-based StreamTuner, but is written in Python. It's a simplistic interface to browser directory services, music genres and MP3 streaming radio stations.

The beta release finally adds favicon support. Though it turned out not all radio stations have one.

Overall the application is more stable now, because it works around the Gtk+ threading problem. Shoutcast and Live365 browsing is fixed now, and even slightly faster than before.... read more
