A great WordPress plugin for podcasting, PodPress has been updated to version 4.2. I have yet to make the upgrade, but this was the major reason I made the jump to WordPress with RadioZoom. Publishing is that much easier with this plugin.
This update is a matter of days old and has gone from version 4.0 to 4.2 within a matter of days, updates fixing minor issues and bugs. Other details to the release:
– Full featured and automatic feed generation (RSS2, iTunes and ATOM)
– Auto Generation of enclosure tag
– Preview of what your Podcast will look like on iTunes
– Podcast Download stats
– Support for Premium Content (Pay Only)
– Makes adding a Podcast to a Post very simple
– View MP3 Files ID3 tags when your Posting
– Control over where the player will display within your post.
– Support for various formats, including Video Podcasting
– Supports unlimited number of media files.
– Automatic Media player for MP3, MP4, MOV, FLV, ASF, WMV, AVI, and more, with inline and Popup Window support.
– Preview image for videos
– Easy way to link to your podcast within iTunes
I hope to make the upgrade soon, but might hold off to make sure that there are not any major issues requiring a new update.
Update: As of March 31, 2006, PodPress is now up to version 4.3.
