Release notes 

This release introduces a gui for setting the preferences for Streamtastic, thus manual changes to the configuration file should no longer be necessary. The whole configuration framework has been reworked and the pre-run checks were removed. The minimum required streamripper version was increased to 1.64.5, so that all recording parameters from the preferences gui are supported.

Furthermore there were some minor changes to the general GUI. A column selection popup menu is now available on the table headers in Downloads and directory views. Some more substance skins are available from the look and feel menu. The About dialog was redesigned and got now 2 tabs one for genreral infos and one dedicated to copyright. The error dialog which informs about failed rips was reenabled. It accidentally disappeared when the code was adjusted to reflect the streamripper status output switch from stderr to stdout. There is also a warning dialog displayed in case Streamtastic is going to close with still running rips.

The icecast directory has a new configuration parameter, that allows to exclude some genre/tags from the listing. This excludes just the tags, the stations are still available at least through the special genres "---OTHER---" or "---ALL--". The icecast directory contains errornous encoded utf8 chars, that probably originated from multiple applied utf8 encoding with special control chars filtered out. There is a filter stream added, which is at least able to fix some 2 byte encodings.

The external player invocation can be customized, thus for example supplying switches that prevent vlc to open new instances on every invocation.

The were new custom build files added and a debian folder which contains all neccessary files to build debian/ubuntu packages. So there will be packages available through a launchpad ppa soon.

The launchpad translation interface is now enabled and open for everyone who is interested in localizing streamtastic to their language.

Have fun with the new release!
