gPodder updates for Nokia N9 Harmattan
Editor: Andrew Olmsted
Thomas Perl announced he has packaged and released gPodder for Harmattan. Highlights of 3.2.0 are an improved UI (e.g. cover art in the "All episodes" list) and Flattr integration, so you can now support podcast authors via micropayments (you'll find the Flattr button below the shownotes for podcasts that publish a Flattr URL). There was a packaging issue that may have lead users upgrading to 3.2.0 to see a failure, but it was quickly caught and fixed in 3.2.1
Socialty Facebook client updated
Mohammad Abu-Garbeyyeh's social network client, Socialty, has been updated to v0.4.x. Features include: Added basic animations to make Sociality a better looking experience; Fixed "<3" statuses breaking checkin tags; YouTube links can now be opened in internal media player; Allow albums of other users to be opened by tapping profile picture; Group posts now open up individually, rather than the whole group page; Tapping a photo link in the news feed opens the photo in Sociality.
The first post in the thread links to a binary package and the gitorious source. Existing users should be notified automatically, but can also do "About > Check for Updates".
