CHANGES

Release Name: 0.13
  • Added option allow_stream, which will allow scrobbling of http streams if set to true (default false). Feature untested.

  • Fixed bug in password submition (thanks joeblow1102)

  • Added support for password@host value in MPD_HOST

  • Searched, without success, for memory leak. If anyone wants to help, uncomment the Storable lines and start looking into it...

  • Added (documented) support for Proxy server

Release Name: 0.12
  • Fixed bug that sometimes prevented Music::Tag from working at all. Added some level 4 debug messages.

Release Name: 0.11
  • Added musictag_overwrite option. This is false by default. It is a workaround for problems with Music::Tag and unicode. Setting this to true allows Music::Tag info to overwrite info from MPD. Do not set this to true until Music::Tag returns proper unicode consistantly.

Release Name: 0.1
  • Split off all scrobbling code to Music::Audioscrobbler::Submit

  • Added an error message if file is not found.

  • Added use warnings for better debugging.

  • Started using Pod::Readme for README and CHANGES
