Banshee and Podcasts

Novell Open Audio listener Jay Martinez emailed to ask "Can anyone address how to handle podcasts on suse 10.1?" prompting me to investigate.

On May 8th, the Banshee project's Aaron Bockover posted about a podcatching plug-in for Banshee. The creator of the plug-in, Michael Urbanski, posted several screenshots, too.

[Update 1:25 PM MDT]
I IM'ed with Aaron briefly after reading his blog and got this additional information.

  • The 0.11.x release of Banshee will include an additional " banshee-official-plugins" package, which has podcasting, minimode, internet radio, and some other plugins in it
  • Since SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop has long since passed its code lockdown date, it will include Banshee version 0.10.x. We geeks will need to add 0.11.x when it's available. That's disappointing, but understandable given the care that needs to go into testing enterprise products.
  • The Banshee roadmap on the Banshee wiki now sports the latest updates for what's coming
