gPodder 3.4.0 for MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan

As promised, following the 2.20.3 release for Maemo 4 and Maemo 5, a new version of gPodder 3 has been released today. This release brings some new improvements to the QML UI that should make scrolling in the episode list faster, as well as align a bit more with the Harmattan UX Guidelines.

As always, updated packages will be available via Nokia Store once the QA process has finished. As there have been problems with recently (3.3.0 isn't even out of the staging area yet, after 3 months), we now provide a package of gPodder for MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan on for those who want to avoid or can't use Nokia Store (you have to enable packages from unknown sources, and you might have to uninstall the previous version if it came from Nokia Store or Apps For MeeGo due to the Aegis security policy). The source and packaging is available in the "harmattan" branch in Git, as has always been the case.

I hope you like the new UI changes. If you are missing the feed update button in the lower left corner, try "pull to refresh" on the podcast list (this avoids accidental updates when pressing the back button twice). I'd like to create a nicer "pull to refresh" implementation, but the limitations of Qt 4's QML Flickable prevent me from creating a better one (if you have a better implementation than gPodder's PullDownHandle, I'd love to hear from you). Scrolling the episode list should now also be faster (than before), and some unnecessary animations were removed in the process.

gPodder 2.20.3 for Maemo 4 and Maemo 5

A new release of gPodder 2.x for Maemo 4 (aka Diablo, N800 + N810) and Maemo 5 (aka Fremantle, N900) is out, fixing YouTube-related issues (again ;).

Packages have been uploaded to Maemo Extras, but as people have reported problems with the autobuilder, and as seems to be moving these days, anyway (to the Hildon Foundation, apparently), we also provide for the first time since.. well, since a very long time I guess.. binary .deb packages for gPodder on Maemo 4 and Maemo 5 :)

You can find the download links on the gPodder download page - you can directly download gPodder 2.20.3 from the web browser in both OS versions, and choose to open the .deb file with the Application Manager. Be sure to choose the right package for your device (N8x0 users choose the Maemo 4 version, N900 users choose the Maemo 5 version). Enjoy :) Next up: A new release of gPodder 3.x for Harmattan. Soon!
