2012-03-27 - gPodder 3.1.0 "The Discipline of D.E." released

A new release of gPodder is out. This version brings the new extensions
system, with already quite a few of the old "hooks" ported. The
extensions framework will also be used to bring back MP3 player sync
capabilities in future versions, but this feature didn't make it into
3.1.0. Other changes include a re-designed and improved QML UI for MeeGo
1.2 Harmattan (with the ability to lock the screen into portrait-only
mode), and various improvements to the Gtk UI, including a live
"progress icon" in the episode list for downloads in progress. Windows
users will be happy to know that gPodder now checks for updates and
offers to download a newer version when one is available (this feature
can be disabled in the configuration). The configuration is now saved in
a JSON file instead of a .ini-style file to accomodate for the flexible
configuration options of the new extension modules.

For packages in distributions, see the downloads page. A special thanks
to Bernd Schlapsi, who has devoted much of his time getting the
extensions framework ready and the hook scripts ported.

Please note that the Desktop version of gPodder 3 does not yet contain
the MP3 player syncing feature. This is also the reason why the Ubuntu
PPA won't be updated to the 3.x releases yet. Users depending on MP3
player syncing are recommended to stay on gPodder 2.20.1 until we get
MP3 player syncing into the 3.x releases. When MP3 player syncing lands
in 3.x, we will start updating the Ubuntu PPA again. Ubuntu users not
requiring the MP3 player sync feature can use gPodder 3 packages from
Debian Experimental in the meantime.
