Filed under: English,TheLastRipper by jonasfj at 4:35 pm

Like I wrote yesterday, a release of TheLastRipper have been in the workings for a while. Now the final details have finally been solved and I’ve released TheLastRipper for both Linux and Windows. Among some of the most interesting changes are:

  • ID3v2 support (Issue 5)
  • International characters (Issue 4)
  • Perfect clipping of songs (Issue 6)
  • Fix tab-index and improve UI (Issue 41)
  • Handle exceptions when launching browser on windows (Issue 45)
  • General exception handling dialog (Issue 46)
  • Support for http proxies (Issue 44)
  • Better overall stability

You may download the new release of TheLastRipper from our project page now!

  3. The failing login is my problem, take a look at issue 63:

    But it seams as if has closed stream by use of the old 1.1 protocol. I can’t get to play in any of the other 1.1 players… So I guess it’s a server bug (Don’t know if it’s a mistake, but I’d assume it is).

  4. hi,
    thanks for the program, exactly what i was looking for!
    it’s great you support 1d3v2 now – but why ist the tag “genre” not filled?
    so, if i record rock one day and jazz the other, how can i get it divided, if i want to listen to rock only? couldn’t you put the station i’m recording into the filed “genre”? so i can search by this field. TIA!

  5. There’s a lot of the features in id3v2 tags that not used yet (embedded image etc.). But it’s only possible to detect genre when recording from tag radio, if you record from a personal radio it would be fairly difficult 🙂
