Airtime 1.7 introduces one of the most-requested features by our users: the ability to record a live show and automatically rebroadcast it at a future date. A live show that broadcasts at 8 am every Monday, for example, can now be automatically rebroadcast at 2 pm on Wednesday and 6 pm on Friday.
Airtime 1.7 comes packaged for the first time with a pair of standalone JQuery widgets for public-facing websites to show your visitors what's currently playing and the upcoming schedule.
Airtime now automatically cut shows to fit within time blocks. Following user requests, it's now possible to overbook a show and Airtime will automatically fade out what is playing and start the next show at the proper time. A show can also now be canceled with a click of a button, addressing the most common feature request of those who were trying out Airtime 1.6 - the ability to stop a show once it was started.
Users who take advantage of the OGG and MP3 streams will be happy to hear that the streams now include the station name, show name, and song information. Since a number of users have single-button Apple computers, Sourcefabric have swapped a number of right-click operations for left-clicks instead. And, though there haven't yet had any requests to support it, Airtime now works under IE8.
