The Airtime calendar view for Sourcefabric FM, our team radio station.

Airtime 2.3.1 is out now and provides a stability and security upgrade to the last version released in February.

Airtime allows radio stations to be programmed and streamed through an easy web interface and can be downloaded and installed on GNU/Linux platforms like Ubuntu and Debian,  or used via Sourcefabric's web-hosted Airtime Pro service.

Airtime 2.3 was released for World Radio Day and has an interface translated into 11 languages and the option for users to add new translations. Icecast and SHOUTcast listener statistics are now available too, as are automatically set cue-points and ReplayGain improvements.

Huge thanks to the amazing Airtime community who have been helping to test and zap bugs.

What's new?

  • Multiple bug fixes
  • Security fixes with running unescaped shell commands
  • Fixed backend services not coming back online if RabbitMQ crashed and then restarted
  • Uninstall now properly cleans system
  • Improved Services watchdog (test whether Services are running and responding, not just running)
  • Much faster library import (Silan analyzer runs in background)
  • Fixed zombie process sometimes being created
  • Upgraded to Mutagen (tag reader) 1.21

Airtime has four live-assist modes, an intelligent audio library and calendar, and a Now Playing dashboard that allows tracks to be dragged-and-dropped on-the-fly into a playing schedule. Professional needs are catered for with WAV, FLAC and AAC support, plus ReplayGain which helps to normalise volume output.

Check out all the Airtime features.

In addition to those, the Airtime 2.3 series offers the following improvements...

  • The interface is now available in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Russian, Polish, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Czech.
  • Stations can now translate the interface themselves.
  • Listener Statistics allow stations streaming on the web via Icecast & Shoutcast to track how many people are tuned into the station.
  • Airtime scans newly imported tracks for leading/trailing silence and automatically sets cue points to avoid silence.
  • ReplayGain, a tool that enables all audio to be broadcast at a consistent volume level can now be switched on and off, plus offset in real-time.
  • Liquidsoap memory footprint improvements mean better streaming performance.
  • There is a new user management page for non-admin users.
