Announcing TheLastRipper development discussion group/list
Filed under: English,TheLastRipper by jonasfj at 11:04 pm

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been actively developing TheLastRipper, even though I’ve been promising myself I’d find time for it over and over again…
But since there’s other people who have shown interest for the project, I’ve decided that it’s probably best if project coordination happens in an open forum instead of just sending mails between developers. Therefore I’ve created a TheLastRipper development discussion group for discussion of project direction, features, technical matters etc. without always having to create an issue in the issue tracker.
I’m not leaving the project, just realizing that with my current activity or just in general, it’d probably be good for a project with multiple developers to have a development list for discussions of all the stuff we can’t fit in the issue tracker.

So if you’re interested in TheLastRipper development join today

Update: I’m happy to announce that Andreas Langmann is also a project owner now, so that I’m not the only administrator…


  1. When will there be a new version of thelastripper?

    Would love to run multiple instances on one box…

  5. I don’t think there is a package for mandriva…

    I’ve just made 1.4.1 available as a tarball here:

    However, it requires a bit more experience to install tarballs…

  6. Is it possible to make TheLastRipper Compatible with the Rhythmbox-player and it’s Last.FM extension?

    that would be wacked men!!

  7. No reason to make it compatible, I’m sure that adding a save-song hack to Rhythmbox would be easy.

    But I’m no longer maintaining TheLastRipper, nor do I have any intentions to pursue projects in this area.
    I’m too old, and have way too many other projects 🙂

    Anyways, writing TheLastRipper wasn’t exactly rocket science. I’m sure a high school student with too much time could pull it of.
    (That’s what I did)

    Best of luck, Jonas.

    By the way, if you plan to undertake such a project and need help getting started, feel free to drop me an e-mail.
