    Smashed Bugs, which caused following cases:

  • When number of posts in one subscription exceeds 300, Ziepod started to show already deleted entries
  • Sometimes Ziepod failed to load existing playlists from iTunes at start-up
  • In specific cases, when you set download schedule, it caused crashes
  • When resume was not supported, Ziepod didn't cared about that and tried to download what it was left.
  • After selecting multiple podcasts, and then selecting "Run Post Sweeper" option on those, Ziepod crashed
  • Some problems related to redirected downloads
  • Sometimes Ziepod failed to automatically overwrite ID3 tags of MP3 files
  • Failed at global setting of "Add downloaded file into the playlist"
  • After suspending auto-synch for a podcast, and then syching it manually, Ziepod turned on the auto-synch again for that podcast
  • For some visual/display modes, content of the wizard and properties dialogs were not be totally visible/accessible. Now they are.
  • When setting download schedule, in some cases, it caused crashes
  • When one episode was moved into another place inside Ziepod while they were being downloaded, Ziepod canceled its download
  • Ziepod couldn't have played some of *MP3* files and showed "Failed to open" message. Now this case is mostly removed for downloaded episodes. In case of streaming, instead of saying "can't open", in most of the cases new Ziepod takes more time to open those failed files.
  • When there were both media and image enclosures associated with one posts, Ziepod sometimes choosed the image as a primary enclosure and discarded actual enclosure in media format.
  • In some cases, Ziepod failed to save downloaded file because of the invalid file name.

    Special Notes:

    * Some of the bugs listed above may not be removed completely since they occur very rarely. If you encounter any, please let us know. Plus, there are also other tiny bugs that are not listed above.

    * We'd like to thank all Ziepod users who helped us by sending their feedbacks and suggestions.
