Radioshift 1.5.2

by Adam C. Engst

Rogue Amoeba's Radioshift [1] 1.5 snuck out at the very end of 2009, and has subsequently been followed by a pair of bug-fix updates. Major new features in Radioshift 1.5 include support for thousands of previously unsupported streams (including ones previously available only to Web-based players), better error-handling with faulty streams, easier installation of third-party players, an overhauled interface, independence from crashes in external audio playback engines, and auto-wake support for FileVault-protected home folders. Fixes in 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 resolve a problem with live listening of programs from the guide, properly preserve the listening history between launches, and address a number of cosmetic issues. Full release notes [2] are available. ($32 new, free update, 11.2 MB)
