Today I released PulseCaster 0.1.10 with some under the hood improvements:
- Switch from GConf to GSettings, and include schema file
- Providing appdata for GNOME Software
- Provide hidden “audiorate” key for 44.1/48 kHz selection
- Complete GObject introspection switchover, eliminating excess dependencies and fixing bugs (RHBZ #1045717)
- Automatically provide .ogg filename extension in standard mode
- Additional translations
I’m planning some UI improvements for this little podcasting utility. I’m also hoping to do significant code refactoring for 0.2, tentatively scheduled for late spring/early summer. I’m also thinking about moving the central development repo to GitHub, since that’s where a lot of other Fedora incubated projects have migrated.
Of course, updated packages are coming shortly for Fedora 20.
PulseCaster lets you record interviews with simplicity. It pulls audio from two sources via PulseAudio, then mixes them into an Ogg Vorbis file for you. There’s also an expert mode that allows you to lossless audio in WAV format, and mix the audio yourself with post processing. For example, you could interview someone via a Voice-over-IP (VoIP) application, then include the interview in your podcast.
I used a little time between sessions (and during one session where I was completely in over my head) to push this out. It was nice to work on some free software of my own at a conference for developers! Hope you enjoy the new PulseCaster release.
