Campcaster 1.2.0 Released
Campware is pleased to release version 1.2 "Kotor" of its Campcaster radio broadcasting application. It is available for download here. If you are an Ubuntu user, see the Ubuntu-specific installation instructions. Lots of useful information about setting up and using Campcaster can be found on our wiki.  If you are already using Campcaster on a two-computer setup, please read this note.

*** What's New in Campcaster 1.2 ***
It has been only two short months since the 1.1.0 release, but there are plenty of improvements to be happy about:
  1. Radio Data System(RDS) support added: RDS messages are displayed on radio receivers which display the name of the station and the name of the song that is currently being played. You will need RDS hardware in your radio station to take advantage of this feature.
  2. Sneaker-net support: you can now easily make a copy of your audio content to removable media in order to physically transport it to its destination or simply keep it as a backup. This is useful when you have a large amount of data to share with affliate stations or when you have little or no Internet connectivity.
  3. The Live Mode audio player has been improved so that reshuffling your playlists around is less likely to create any pause before playing them.
  4. Importing of audio has been seriously improved:
    1. Importing via the command line is now faster and has the option to "link" to your audio files. The previous version of Campcaster required making a copy of each file you imported, which resulted in doubling the disk space needed to store your files.
    2. Duplicate audio files are now detected and not imported.
    3. Importing via the command line and the Web now reads the "comments" and "genre" audio tags properly.
  5. Campcaster Web search is now faster and the results show the album name and track number.
  6. Campcaster Web "Help" menu has been expanded with a link to the online manual and the Campcaster homepage.
Of course a number of bugs were fixed as well, click "read more" to see those.

Campcaster 1.2.0-Beta Released
Campcaster 1.2.0 BETA has been released! Please try installing and testing it, but please do not install it on production systems. With this beta release we want to make sure the packages are working and also check for any bugs in the software. Click "read more" to see how to install it.

The major improvements are:
  • Radio Data System(RDS) support added: Campcaster now supports RDS messages - these are the messages that are displayed on your receiver telling you the name of the station and the name of the song that is currently being played. You will need RDS hardware to take advantage of this feature.
  • Audio Player: Now it is possible to abort running Preloader instances. This helps greatly with the Live Mode, when items are reshuffled before playing.
  • Importing via the command line now has the option to "link" to music files so that you do not need to make a copy of your media files. The previous version of Campcaster required doubling the disk space required to store your files.
  • Duplicate audio files are now detected and not imported. When a duplicate is detected the user will be informed.
  • Importing via the command line and the Web now reads the "comments" and "genre" audio tags properly.
  • Fixed a bug in the Network Hub where if you tried to cancel an upload to the network hub, it wouldnt work.
  • During installation, there are no longer any problems if the database has already been installed. This will be detected properly and handled appropriately.
  • There are now much better informational messages during installation.
  • Redundant tasks that occurred during installation have been removed.
