KRadio 4.0.0 released. Finally, KRadio4 4.0.0 has been released! About half a year ago the porting of the original KDE3 application to KDE4 started. Now, about 6 months, 400 subversion repository commits and tons of fixed bugs later, KRadio4 is now ready for release.

KRadio4 brings some new features such as Internet Radio, RDS support, DBus interfacing and Keyboard Shortcuts. Furthermore, almost all issues known from the KDE3 release should be fixed in KRadio4. For details please have a look into the ChangeLog.

KRadio4 has been made possible last but not least due to the extreme patient debugging of many users, due to the continuous effort of translators with ever changing translation strings and due to support by many others.

Thanks a lot to everyone!

Source code and translation packages as well as binary packages for Debian/unstable and OpenSuSE11.1 (both 32 and 64 bit) can be downloaded from the KRadio homepage: http://kradio.sourceforge.net/download.html

If you are looking for KRadio4 binaries for Fedora, please have a look at atrpms.net.Paulo Roma Cavalcanti is so kind to maintain KRadio in Fedora: http://www.atrpms.net

Please test and give feedback about bugs but also success! Have fun with the new KRadio!

KRadio 4.0.0-beta1-r664. Finally, KRadio 4.0beta1 for KDE4 is ready! This release is basically the long awaited port to KDE4. Additionally a few features have been added. KRadio has now support for RDS and shortcuts. Furthermore, the support for PVR cards is now better documented and hopefully working. Of course, this release comes with many additional bug fixes. Since the start of the KDE4 port 163 change sets have been submitted. About 60 entries in the ChangeLog document the fixes that have been done, mostly additionally to the pure KDE4 porting effort. I hope, that this beta release now animates a broader community for testing. Please test and give feedback about bugs but also success!
2009/02/20
KRadio Snapshot-2009-02-20-r649. Progress on KRadio4 accellerated much since the long delayed initial KDE4 port published with the previous snapshot. This snapshot is now hopefully really usable, the ChangeLog lists a quite long set of fixes of minor and major bugs, even including two new features: RDS and shortcut support. Furthermore, the settings ncessary for PVR cards are documented much better now in the config dialog, the WWW-FAQ and a readme file. I hope that KRadio4 is now really usable. A first beta release will be published very soon if no more sever bugs pop up.

Finally, after some really busy time at work and shifting appartments, etc., I managed to spend some time of my vacations on kradio again. The result: KRadio Snapshot-2006-10-29, a new plugin for basic streaming support (currently only raw format, but hopefully easily extensible for internet radio) that now allows PVR radio cards to be controlled completely by kradio, including /dev/video24. Furthermore, some important bug fixes have been included, particularly one for the station editing configuration page and a fix for the high CPU load problem which was caused by broken LIRC pipes. For details about the changes please have a look into the ChangeLog file. Please be aware, that from this release on, kradio will only compile properly using unsermake.
2006/06/06
Eventually managed to move to my new appartment and to transfer the web site to a new server: https://www.nocabal.de.
2005/11/27
KRadio Snapshot_2005_11_27 provides few small bugfixes for nerving bugs like the tooooo big configuration dialog and high memory consumption. I'm sorry for the long delay since the last releases, I'm currently very busy at work. Might be, that a few snapshots with very little changes will follow before the first 1.0rc release. For details have a look into the ChangeLog.
Please test and report errors!
2005/08/28
kradio-1.0beta3b provides a few important fixes. A bug prevented that changes in the station list were recognized/saved. Furthermore, kradio should now recognize the session end and power off / save the state properly. The Mute/ZeroVolume behaviour on power off is now configurable (some radio card's do not mute automatically, but not all users like muted/zeroed mixer channels ). For details have a look into the ChangeLog.
Please test and report errors!
2005/08/22
kradio-1.0beta3 provides quite a bunch of bugfixes, with special respect to LIRC, ALSA, buffer handling in general as well as usability improvements during the first startup and two new features called "active playback" and pre-recording. For cards that don't use the line-in loop, active playback captures the sound from a special device which is played back on the sound card. With pre-recording, you no longer need worry about starting recording too late: The last <configurable> seconds before the decision are captured, too!
2005/08/13
kradio-1.0beta2 provides a new ALSA plugin, lots of fixes, with special respect to the makefile build system. Thanks a lot to Marcus Camen and Dirk Mueller.
2005/05/21
kradio-1.0beta1 After a long time of slowed down development and major sound backend and plugin management rework, here is finally kradio-1.0beta1 with new features. For details see KRadio Homepage. The CVS module on SourceForge is now called kradio3 to reflect the major changes.
2004/08/28
Patch against xosview-1.8.2 that improves the cpu-meter. Timers for IO/Wait, HW-IRQs and SW-IRQs that are provided by linux 2.6.x are supported now. The disk-meter block size problem is adjusted for my personal configuration, here block sizes are 1k (ext3, linux 2.6.8.1).

I'm happy to announce that Charles A. Edwards is maintaining KRadio packages for Mandrake! You can now download up-to-date Mandrake packages from his home page on http://www.eslrahc.com

Thanks to a lot to Stefanos Harhalakis for the patch that fixes compile errors with gcc-3.4

2004/02/23

2003/09/14
KRadio 0.3.0-alpha2 released
2003/08/16
KRadio 0.3.0-alpha1 released after long lasting rewrite.
2003/07/19
Quick&Dirty Hack for xosview 1.8.0, this one should be able to run under linux-2.6.x (but only under 2.6.x, not 2.4.x or earlier, as I said: a dirty hack;). It fixes the hang caused by missing input.eof() conditions and displays CPU IO Wait time and disk stats correctly.
2003/05/15
KRadio 0.2.8pre1b released. Minor bugfixes.
