Campcaster 1.2.0-Beta Released

Bookmark and Share

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.

The following instructions are for Ubuntu users only.

You can install it by adding this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://code.campware.org/~fgerlits/ubuntu dapper main

then run:

# sudo apt-get update

If you have Campcaster 1.1 installed, then run:
