The new version of Pie (new name still pending) is out.
Uninstall any previous version first from Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
Report any bugs and suggest ideas to email@example.com or leave a comment here.
For the power users out there, the system event log will contain any errors that occurred when reporting it’s helpful to include them.
My podcast viewer currently runs standalone and as a plug-in for Windows Media Player.
How would people prefer to use it? I would love to make it a ClickOnce application that can be installed without being admin. This however would limit the ability to install the WMP plug-in. On the plus side, you receive automatic updates.
I am investigating ways to make the app ClickOnce install and then register the plug-in later. The problem is that the uninstall would not remove the plug-in for you.
In addition, I need a funky name for the app. PIE is a bit abstract and confusing with other products.
I quite like “PodBouncer”, but I’m open to options. The only real constraint is that the .com domain needs to exist.
Due to hard failure at the hosting company I use, my domain equin.co.uk is offline.
This means all my email is probably not working either. I’m as annoyed as you are, but these things do happen! They are restoring from back-ups at the moment. I hope everything is back to normal soon.
