Zoom The new version of the media player introduces podcast support
Source: Clementine
The latest major update to Clementine, version 1.1, expands the open source media player's streaming support and adds long-awaited podcast functionality. Clementine is a cross-platform program that, its developers say, is designed to be both fast and easy-to-use, and was inspired by version 1.4 of Amarok (the current release is Amarok 2.6). It supports playback of local music libraries and streaming of online radio stations, and can be used to transcode music into MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Speex, FLAC and AAC files.

One of the most notable changes in Clementine 1.1 is the addition of support for podcasts, a feature much-requested by users. To make it easier to find new shows and synchronise podcast collections, the media player also includes integration.

In addition to support for the Spotify and Grooveshark music streaming services, which was added in version 1.0, users can now also stream content from Soundcloud and, as well as any music stored in their Google Drive accounts. Other changes include updates to the global search user interface, mono playback support and the ability to load cover art from mp4 files. Support for moodbar visualisations has also been added.

A full list of fixes and new features can be found in the change log. Clementine 1.1 is available to download for various Linux distributions, Windows and Mac OS X from the project's site. Source code for Clementine is hosted on Google Code and is licensed under the GPLv3.
