Airtime radio software updated with new DEB packages
The Sourcefabric development team has released version 1.9.4 of its open source Airtime radio software. Airtime is a server application which allows users, from any modern web browser, to upload audio, create playlists with drag and drop, incorporate track transitions, build complete shows and then schedule them for transmission.
One of the most notable changes is that Airtime 1.9.4 is now available with new DEB packages, making it easier to install on Ubuntu and Debian systems, as well as keep up to date. According to the developers, the release also includes a new file storage system with 'watch' folders which can be used by stations to synchronise files and browse their archives. Other changes include improvements to the front-end widgets, support for SHOUTcast Radio and various bug fixes.
Further information about the release can be found in the official release announcement and in the change log. Airtime 1.9.4 is available to download from Sourcefabric.org; a quick guide and a user manual is provided. Hosted on GitHub, Airtime source code is licensed under the GPLv3.
