Retune and ejurgensen’s version of forked-daap


I would like to announce that Retune now works an improved version of forked-daap. I’ve worked with the developer, ejurgensen, to add supported.

ejurgensen’s version of forked-daap is specifically geared to Raspberry Pi’s; however, you can build it for any Linux distro. I’ve been using it with Ubuntu myself. ejurgensen has greatly improved upon the initial forked-daap implemented and has updated it to match iTunes 10.

You can find more information about it on his Raspberry Pi forum post here:

And at the GitHub repo here:

Give forked-daap a try, it works great.

Retune now in Spanish and Italian

I’ve just posted Retune v3.5.15 for everyone. This version includes bug fixes and new translations.

I’d like to give a big special thanks to both Armando Lozano Gallegos and Mario Nicolas Cappello for helping translate Retune. Armando helped with the Spanish translation and Mario with the Italian translation. I hope my Spanish and Italian speaking users appreciate their efforts.

Again thank you Armando and Mario!
