Patched version 0.6.8 - Support for Pandora new layout

Patched version 0.6.8 is ready.

It fixes the layout problem after recent changes to Pandora layout.
This is only an initial fix and an official update will come later.

Remark: The OpenPandora update mechanizm will try to load this page http://openpandora.googlepages.com/download/, but due to a problem with GooglePages it will not be recognized. The correct URL is this one http://openpandora.googlepages.com/download, without the slash (/) at the end. This is a new issue with GooglePages and I hope they will fix it soon.

Enjoy your music.

Any reason the player would be shifted to the left 50px?

Very nicely done.

Originally (on the last version), my player was shifted as well. But this new version fixes that.

Messenger is misspelled. Please correct on your home page.

It's on download page. Thanks.

Can you make OpenPandora use Firefox (if the user has it installed) ? That way, there are no "click" sounds and may use reduced system resources.

oldnick said...

The OpenPandora program installs OK but when I run it all I get is a dislog box saying Pandora loading , please wait.,,,,,and I'm still waiting!
What could be the problem?

eitan said...

Possible problem is that you are located outside US. Are you?

oldnick said...

Yes, New Zealand.
But I thought that this download would allow access to Pandora from outside the US.

check this port for details http://openpandora.blogspot.com/2007/05/some-good-news.html

oldnick said...

Obviously I needed to install Hotspot Shield.
I did that and **success** , Pandora loaded and remembered my email and password, even remembered my music.
Thanks!

Minor defect: The title shows % characters.
Example:
Theme From "The Scales Of Justice" by The Tornadoes on 1963 The Soundtrack. The title showed %22 for the " characters.

eitan said...

already fixed. will be available in next release

I don't know if this is the place to tell you, but I couldn't find a more appropriate spot so... NICE WORK!

First-time user. Worked immediately upon install. THANKS!

P.S. Pandora should hire you... =)

I've reinstalled a few times and the app still shifts pandora up and to the left.

The first way I cleared it was to uninstall the latest version of open Pandora, clear everything from my IE cache and firefox cace. Then I reinstalled 0.6.8. Initially this fixed things, but the behavior returned after a day or so.

Any ideas?

In voicing this complaint, I don't want you to get the impression that I don't appreciate your hard work and this program. I love it.

Shouldn't you increment the version number when you make a change, especially a rather important one like this?

I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only person who looks at the download page for their favorite programs and decides whether there's been an update based purely on the version number shown there. In the case of OpenPandora, I haven't seen a new version number on the site in quite a while, and in this case I couldn't tell that you'd put up the fix for the new layout until I happened across this blog post.

Is OpenPandora "broken" again as of today? It was working great for me yesterday but today when I launched it, the content inside is shifted so I can't see all the Pandora controls.

digiMarkK said...

I concur with INANE, it looks like it's broken :(
I love your program and use it daily. Please fix it.
