Airtime 1.8.2 - June 8, 2011

Full changelog is here.

  • Improvements:
    • You can now download audio files from the search screen and from the "Show Content" screen.
    • The "Now Playing" screen now shows whether a show is being recorded.
    • In the "Playlist Builder" screen, you can now edit the title of the playlist and the description inline, without having to switch to another page.
    • When you click on "Add Show", the cursor is placed on the show title field and a default name is automatically filled in.
    • It is now possible to cancel a show that was recording.
    • An new command-line program was added to verify an installation and help identify where problems are: "airtime-check-system"
    • Airtime now runs on Ubuntu 11.04 (though we do not offer support for this).
  • Bug fixes:
    • Fixed serious problem with the upgrading and installing process.  The Airtime install will now automatically detect if you should upgrade or install and take the appropriate action.  Reinstalls cannot happen except by using a specific command.
    • "Show Contents" screen will now display properly on smaller screens.
    • Install/uninstall now works on Debian without needing the "sudo" command.
    • Editing a playlist name or deleting a playlist now reflects immediately in the media search window.
    • In the "Add Media" page, the "start upload" button vanished after upload.  Now it remains there after upload so it is possible to upload again.
    • When canceling a playing show, the currently playing audio file still showed as playing.  This has been fixed.
    • Audio files greater than 100MB were not being played.
    • Fixed various editing show problems
    • Fixed airtime-pypo-stop/start causing playback problems
    • Fixed incorrect information being occasionally shown in the top panel
    • Fixed problem with Record Check box occasionally being greyed-out when creating new show
    • Fixed a problem with default genre not being applied to recorded shows
    • Fixed a problem where shows repeating bi-weekly or monthly did not update properly when edited.
    • Fixed problem when a user changed the name of a recorded show right before it started playing would cause the recorded audio not to be linked to the show.
    • and many more...

Airtime 1.8.1 - May 2, 2011

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed issue where an track's progress bar would keep updating, even if the track was no longer playing.
  • Fixed problem where editing a show would only update some of the show instances.
  • Fixed an issue related to editing a show that had instances scheduled in the past.
  • airtime-clean-storage command-line utility should now work properly
  • Fixed an issue related the "airtime-import" command-line utility
  • Fixed an issue with the Airtime Debian package overwriting configuration files
  • Fixed some database install issues on Debian
  • Fixed an issue with show names and foreign characters causing the show to not start (temporarily disabled allowing the usage of these characters)

Airtime 1.8.0 - April 19, 2011

  • The biggest feature of this release is the ability to edit shows. You can change everything from 'Name', 'Description', and 'URL', to repeat and rebroadcast days. Show instances will be dynamically created or removed as needed.  Radio stations will be pleased to know they can now have up to ten rebroadcast shows too.
  • Airtime's calendar now looks, feels and performs better than ever. Loading a station schedule is now five to eight times faster. In our tests of 1.7, if the month calendar had shows scheduled for every hour of every day, it used to take 16 seconds to load. Now in 1.8 it takes two seconds.
  • It is possible to have up to ten rebroadcast shows now, in 1.7 it was only up to five.
  • Airtime's new installation script has two options for increased install flexibility:  --preserve to keep your existing config files, or --overwrite to replace your existing config files with new ones. Uninstall no longer removes Airtime config files or the music storage directory.
  • New improved look & feel of the calendar (thanks to the "FullCalendar" jQuery project).
  • Installation now puts files in standard locations in the Linux file hierarchy, which prepares the project to be accepted into Ubuntu and Debian.  Also because of our wish to be part of those projects, the default output stream type is now OGG instead of MP3 -- due to MP3 licensing issues. This configuration can be changed in "/etc/airtime/liquidsoap.conf".
  • You now have the ability to start and stop pypo and the show recorder from the command line with the commands "airtime-pypo-start", "airtime-pypo-stop", "airtime-show-recorder-start", and "airtime-show-recorder-stop".
  • Bug fixes:

    • Recording/rebroadcast status of a show is shown in "Now Playing" and "Calendar"
    • Can rebroadcast a show at multiple times and dates

  • Frontend JQuery widgets for public-facing websites to show your visitors what's playing and the upcoming schedule
  • Ability to over-book a show and automatically cut and fade out song if it goes beyond the show time
  • Ability to delete audio files
  • Ability to cancel the currently playing show
  • Any changes to the schedule are immediately seen by the playout engine
    • In version 1.6, you had to make sure that your show was ready to go 30 seconds before it started.
  • Upgrade support (should be able to upgrade from any version, unlike 1.6.1 which required an uninstall of 1.6.0 first)
  • "Now Playing" list view:
    • audio items are now grouped by show.
    • If a show is not fully scheduled, the user is notified how many seconds of silence are at the end of the show in this View.
    • Audio items that play past the show's end time have a visual notification that they will be cut off
  • Ability to change metadata tag display format for web streams
  • Config files moved to /etc/airtime.  This means all config files are in one convenient location and separated from the code, so you can upgrade your code independently of your config files.
  • Redesign of Preferences screen
