Without further ado, Elpis is back! Download Here!
It’s be a long couple of weeks for me, as I know it has for many of you that are used to using Elpis every day. I not only rewrote a vast majority of the code that communicates with Pandora but snuck in a number of bug fixes and new features along the way (see previous posts).
Here’s a brief rundown of the new stuff:
- Elpis specific Volume control. (New volume button on the main control bar)
- Track rating from the tray icon context menu
- Purchasing songs/albums from Amazon. Go to Song menu (Right arrow between thumbs) > Purchase
- Basic proxy support. See this post for details.
One thing, however, has been removed… Force SSL. In the past this would fix some connection issues but with the JSON API all it does now is break everything. Therefore, it has been removed from the options and the config file. If you used Force SSL in a previous version, it will revert to the normal method after upgrading. For those of you outside the USA for which this was an easy fix to get things working, I’m really sorry but it will not likely be coming back. To get back up and running again, please visit the post about proxies listed above.
Other than that, everything should work exactly as it did before, if not even a little better. I really hope that everyone enjoys this new version. Please let anyone you know that uses Elpis know about the update. I hope not to have lost too many users because it took longer to get things working again, so please let them know that all they have to do is download and install from here or simple run the old version of Elpis again and be prompted for the new version.
Last, but surely not least, thank you everyone for all of your amazing support!
