Versoin 0.5.0 - Last.fm support

Finally OpenPandora has Last.fmsupport.

This is the main feature added to version 0.5.0. Song submitting can be done automatically or manually. By default in automatic mode, skipped songs are not submitted, but this could be changed in settings.

Settings control was changed and has tabs to reflect additional options.

All links now are opened in default browser and you can't change this behavior from settings.

Some bugs where fixed. If you encounter a bug, please report it via Contact link.

My PandoraPlayer-Project (not released and won't be, cause u can dump all mp3s) features a Flash-ActiveX Control which eliminates the need for a browser control thereby eliminating those nasty "clicks" on track change. Maybe u should try experimenting with that to still improve.

I had no luck in debugging the flashplayer to find out some kind of external API to control the player via FSCommand(), have you found out something about that?

Greetings, Lucas

The disadvantage of the ActiveX-control is that you lose control over the player, u can't receive javascript events and the FSCommand-event does not work because the player does not trigger it with GetURL("FSCommand:...") but with GetURL("javascript....") which never reaches the outside of the player.
Found that out by experimenting for hours and looking at the actionscript inside the flash-player.
There is no way to read variables from the flashfile oder catch events without hacking the flashfile to change the actionscript, and that goes too far for me, I don't want legal difficulties.
If you want, we can chat a little about our developments, just drop me a comment with your msn/e-mail.
What I got working so far is:
-Retrieval of current track infos(Name/Artist,Album,Cover)
-Saving of current/previous track(s) as mp3 (which i really won't publish, it would harm Pandora, a great project)

Greetings, Lucas

very good job

if it would send the "now playing" info to the clipboard with the album name, it would be perfect.
