Now Playing 2.2 Plugin for Windows Live Writer

Posted in Music | Now Playing at Tuesday, 27 February 2007 22:00 W. Europe Standard Time

Yet another post about Now Playing. Some day ago I finished version 2.2 that has one major new feature: Component update capabilities. Since it will eventually become a hassle keeping track of plugin updates, I've implemented a simple updater module that will search the plugin author's web site for new versions.

No personal information will be submitted, not even the version you're currently running. The updater simply downloads an XML file conveying information about the latest version. You may try it on your own by downloading the Now Playing API update file.

This time it has taken just a couple of days to get the new version accepted by the Windows Live Gallery team.

New features in Now Playing 2.2

  • Implemented auto-update capabilities for Now Playing core components and plugins.
  • Added sample plugins with lots of comments to jump-start plugin developers.
  • Re-architected internals, plugins reference now NowPlaying.Api.dll (instead of NowPlaying.Core.dll). You need to recompile your own plugins against this assembly.
  • Fixed an inconsistency about plugin properties.
  • Added more unit tests.
