New version 0.3.6: Song name and artist are back in Open Pandora

After a short research, I found out how to display back the song name and artist, after they where removed from the title by Pandora (see previous post).

Just install the new version 0.3.6a .

Pandora hides song name and artist

The guys in Pandora are making harder to find what song is played.
Current version of their flash player is .

The title remains always the same: "Pandora - Find New Music, Listen to Custom Internet Radio Stations".
Even the java script used to notify on next played song, now contains only the song id.

My guess is that they did this after some guys created application to automatically save played songs to mp3 files called 3Tunes. Actually I just checked and their site is down, sort of.

Update: Not everything is that bad. PandoraFM allows to submit played song in Pandora to Last.FM, and it is still working.
