8.0 – 2007-06-01 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_8.0}]

  • Changed: Player system so it no longer uses AJAX calls, but does everything client side from the podpress.js file. This reduces player load times, and server load as well- seek3r
  • Added: Forced download of locally hosted files, as well as tracking if files are fully downloaded. This ONLY works when podpress stats are enabled, podtrac not enabled, and the files are hosted locally.- seek3r
  • Fixed: RSS2 UTF-8 problems. New solution is cleaner, faster, and properly encodes the content- seek3r
  • Improved: Performance/load issues. With WP2.2 its still possible we will push PHP over its memory limit, but I have made more reductions and hope it will work in more environments. I also improved the podpress_showmem output to give details of how much additional memory consumption podpress is imposing- seek3r
  • Added: Support for OGG and SWF file, with included players- seek3r
  • Changed: Config screens so that disabled sections become hidden- seek3r
  • Changed: the podpress_themes.php has been reduced a bunch. If you have a custom one, you should make sure you can migrate your tweaks to the new ones layout. It should all be fairly easy to understand the changes- seek3r
  • Moved: the players into a subdir, since Im starting to gather quite a little collection- seek3r

  • Expanded: feed controls by file type. There has been format=EXT for awhile (which gives preference to the file extension you specify, and now there is onlyformat=EXT So if you wanted a feed with ONLY the m4v files showing up in your feed you would do site.com/?feed=rss2&onlyformat=m4v

7.7 – 2007-03-22 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_7.7}]

  • Added: readme.txt and some screenshots. These are part of the switch to the wordpress.org plugins hosting service. Check podPress out over there http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/podpress/

7.6 – 2007-03-15 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_7.6}]

  • Fixed: Podcast feed mechanism.This feature broke along the way somewhere, so I redesigned the way I was doing it to be more fully functional and make better use of some features in the wordpress framework – seek3r

7.5 – 2007-03-05 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_7.5}]

This release includes some new stats graphs that macx has been working on for a couple of months. They look amazing and lay a foundation for many more graphical reports to come with podPress.

  • Added: Sweet new stats graphs that were developed by macx.
  • Fixed: More feed content stripping issues
  • Fixed: WPMU 1.1.1 support
  • Fixed: slash problem with the blog title (only in certain cases)
  • Changed: RSS copyright so that users can set the value. Its in the feed settings
  • Changed: Default max media file limit. The default of 20 that I had before would make installs break when running on servers with Suhosin setup to secure PHP.
  • Changed: feedcache support to avoid gzipped feeds.
  • Changed: podpress.css to use !important which should help the preview framing box from getting screwed up in various themes.

7.4 – 2007-02-15 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_7.4}]

  • Fixed: Loss of category casting settings when a post is edited.

7.3 – 2007-02-07 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_7.3}]

  • Fixed: Problems with category casting support, which broke after WP 2.07
  • Added: Support for two sidebar widgets. 1) Feed links, which includes the iTunes button. 2) XSPF Player. podPress has long supported generation of an playlist.xspf but no one seemed to notice or care. Maybe this will improve things
  • Fixed: Finally figured out how to protect the feeds from having bad characters (non-UTF8) that frequently cause feed validation problems for users. podPress was never to blame for this, but since people count on podPress for controlling their feed, I have decided to protect users from themeselves

7.2 – 2007-02-01 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_7.2}]

  • Fixed: Problems with compatibility with WP 2.1 that still screwed up users after 7.1

  • Updated: iTunes Preview to most recent look and feel. (seek3r)
  • Added: Preview for the PodcastAlley.com and Yahoo podcasting directories I think this gives users a real sense of how things look to the outside world. (seek3r)

6.9 – 2006-12-06 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_6.9}]

  • Changed: Seperated the itunes:new-feed-url setting from the feed URL, so that users can set the feed URL but have to seperately enable the potentially dangerous itunes:new-feed-url. (seek3r)
  • Improved: Added feedurl and itunes:new-feed-url into category casting support (seek3r)
  • Fixed: Support for WordPress 2.1. (seek3r)
  • Added: Support for WordPress MU. Im sure there will still be a few bugs here and there, but overall it should be in much better shape. I have it working on a dev install at http://wpmu.mightyseek.com. (seek3r)
  • Improved: Alternate feed support (podcast, premium, atom 1.0, and torrent) which will work out of the box for WP 2.1 users. For 2.0.x users I still have the older working versions of the files. (seek3r)
  • Fixed: Duplicate enclosure bug when using default wp-rss2.php. I figured out a way to trap the enclosure WP wants to add, and just let mine thru. (seek3r)
  • Improvements: Improved stats support. (macx)
  • Fixed: 100 day graph bug. (macx)
  • Fixed: removed language attrib from script tags so that websites can validate with w3c-validator. (macx)

6.8 – 2006-09-10 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_6.8}]

  • Added: M3U file support.

6.7 – 2006-08-01 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_6.7}]

  • Changed: Top level podPress menu will go right to stats if they are enabled.
  • Added: Added new graph based stats (Coded by David Maciejewski) .
  • Improved: Stats view to be paginated now (next/prev) (Coded by David Maciejewski).
  • Changed: In 6.6 the field for ‘iTunes Feed URL’ was misleading and caused HEAPS of problems with feeds. I’ve learned my lesson, labled this better and blocked the problem from happening again.
  • Added: Button to feed validator.
  • Added: Button to Ping iTunes. This is a temporary feature, soon I will have podpress ping iTunes when you add/edit a post. Im waiting on them to fix part of their ping service.
  • Fixed: Problems with some html tags in itunes:subtitle and itunes:summary RSS2 feed.
  • Fixed: Problems with saving settings. This seemed to only affect WP 1.5 users.
  • Added: will add podpress content to the_excerpt now.
  • Added: versionchecker will now cache for a day, so that your admin screens will not be slowed down as often.
  • Added: Mimimum value for ttl is now 1 day. Services such as iTunes are having a hard time keeping up with feeds that have low TTL values.

6.6 – 2006-07-13 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_6.6}]

  • Added: Audio Comments support using the mobatalk.com/mychingo.com service.

6.4 – 2006-07-08 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_6.4}]

  • Fixed: iTunes Categories to the new ones Apple changed to, and includes automatic conversions to the new ones.
  • Fixed: Some issues with podtrac
  • Added: another solution for gettings stats to work (in optional files the podpress_trac dir can be copied into the main wordpress dir)
  • Improved: memory consumption used during install and upgrades which may fix some of the blank screen bugs people using PHP5 are dealing with.
  • Added: Ability to always have a fake enclosure in the feed when the content is protected (premium podcasting feature). This allows even protected posts to show up in iTunes, but the downloads will not function. I will soon add a way to define a default mp3 file to be used to let users know about your premium content.
  • Added: Link to our frapper map. Another way to support podPress at no cost to you.

6.3 – 2006-06-23 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_6.3}]

  • Fixed: invalid function memory_get_usage
  • Fixed: bug in version checker
  • Removed: a few unneeded files

6.2 – 2006-06-23 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_6.2}]

  • Fixed: Some blank page occurances bug caused by exceeding memory limits. Accomplished this by breaking the admin code into seperate files. podPress admin code was consuming a little more than 2MB, but is now under 1MB. However, in PHP5 there are still potential problems because some PHP5 versions appear to consume twice the memory compared to PHP4. Best solution is to increase the memory_limit in the php.ini
  • Added: Support for setting the itunes:new-feed-url in the feed so that iTunes can be updated.
  • Added: Support for disabling player for individual media files.
  • Added: Support for setting max number of media files.

  • Fixed: Serious bug that caused enclosures to be missing in some situations.
  • Improved: Cleaned up the admin javascript to function like the category casting page (much cleaner).

  • Fixed: Extra pipe displayed on second media file labels.
  • Added: Option to allow you to choose if the player/preview will be visible by default.
  • Moved: default text strings for each media type into the theme file.

5.6 – 2006-05-30 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_5.6}]

  • Fixed: Upgrade bug that could have some installs lose their per post iTunes tag settings during upgrade. oops, Sorry.
  • Fixed: Include file path bug.
  • Fixed: call-time pass-by-reference.
  • Fixed: security bug in the wp-feed.php file I include in optional_files.

5.5 – 2006-05-30 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_5.5}]

  • Fixed: Missing resetplayersettings function bug during activate.

5.4 – 2006-05-29 – (archive) [Downloads: {podpress_downloads_5.4}]

  • Performance: I did a major re-structuring to the code base to accomplish some major performance improvements. podPress is at the stage where its nearly functionality complete and it was time to solve performance issues. Im going to list out some of the key aspects:
  • Performance: Seperated out the admin functionality to a seperate extends class which is only loaded/compiled when doing admin tasks. So that is about 2000 lines of code no longer loaded/compiled to serve up web content and rss feeds.
  • Performance: Seperated out the upgrade routines to a seperate extends class which is only loaded/compiled when doing upgrades. So that is another 500 lines of code no longer loaded/compiled to serve up web content and rss feeds.
  • Performance: Streamlined the loading of podPress data so that it is available sooner but was able to reduce the database requests from 9 per Post to 2. This should have a noticable benefit.
  • Added: Stats support tester.
  • Fixed: itunes:duration tag bug which would allow some unusual values to be displayed.
  • Fixed: Browser crash bug with media media player.
  • Fixed: support for M4A and M4V files, so they now play inline in the browser.

  • Added: Help text at various points
