I am pleased to announce the stable release of Podcast Manager, a suite of extensions for Joomla! designed to allow you to host and manage a podcast feed from your Joomla! 1.6 site.
Changes since Beta 2
Since the second beta release last week, the following changes have been made:
- Filename not retained - There were a couple reports of the filename not being retained when a file is selected after the page refresh. To mitigate this, in the same function that pre-fills the podcast form, the filename is re-populated with the information from the cookie that is used to call the function.
- Front end podcast selection - Selecting a podcast via the podcast button when editing from the front end wasn't possible previously due to an oversight on my part to ensure this was working. This functionality is now present.
- Bug fixes and code cleanup - A couple of small bugs were fixed and unnecessary code was removed from the package
Update from Beta 2
In Beta 2, the functionality was added to use the Joomla! core update process to handle updates between versions. Users with Beta 2 can go to the Extension Manager and update their installation immediately! Those who have the Hathor or Minima HTML overrides will need to download the package manually to ensure they have the most recent changes, but the ability to update these files through the Extension Manager has been added with this release.
