Update: Cloud Downloader 3.1

Cloud Downloader 3.1
The weekend is almost over and I was diligent. So there is a new update for the Cloud Downloader.
In addition to some bug fixes, there are also one, two small new features this time. So it’s not a pure bugfix release.
In version 3.1 you there are inter alia the following improvements:
———————————————
New features

Songs from the Soundcloud-Charts are supported now
If you don’t like the cat gifs (animations) during the download, you can disable them by now
If you like the animations, but don’t like cats, you can switch to dogs, sloths, donkeys, fails or wins.
The searchtype “albums” is also supported by now

Bugfixes

Fixed some bugs in the song search
Lags and freezes while showing the animated gifs belong to the past
Better stability of the song search (less”no song found” = more fun)

You want it? You can get it! The downloadlink for the new version can be found (as always) in the […]

Update: Cloud Downloader 3.0

Feels like I’m having a run. Thus, today there is an update for the Cloud Downloader. This time the new version number is 3.0 – and did you get it? We have a round version number. And this means…
…tday there is not only bug fixes, but also new features. What exactly has changed, I want to summarize in the following. But first have a look at some screenshots!

From now on the search screen will show you the filesize (in megabyte) of all tracks together. Moreover it shows also the size of the selected songs. Thus, you can estimate before downloading, if your download list will fit on your favorite USB drive.

Update: Cloud Downloader 2.9.7

Cloud Downloader 2.9.7
Barely a few days after the release of version 2.9.6, a new version of the Cloud Downloader is available for download.
In version 2.9.7, there are, as also in the last two updates, no new features but bugfixes.
Since the SoundCloud API has changed a bit in the background, the ID3 tags have not been fully generated. This could be particularly noticed by missing cover art. (Thanks to you all, the diligent commentators, who drew my attention to this bug.)
Anyway. New version, new luck. In Version 2.9.7 now back with ID3 tags and album artwork.
The current version can be found in the main article about the Cloud Downloader at the following link:

Update: Cloud Downloader 2.9.6

Cloud Downloader 2.9.6The last update of the Cloud Downloader was two weeks ago. Since then I got a lot of feedback from you all by e-mail. So, among other things, two bugs could be identified. Therefore, today there is a new version.
The version 2.9.6 of the Cloud Downloader includes the following changes:

Previously, when specifying a “/likes” URL only the songs were observed. If a complete playlist was liked, its songs have been disregarded. Now all the songs, even those from “embedded” playlists, are respected.
The “/playlists” URLs from the profile pages could not be read. This works now.
The complete code has been revised in order to prevent crashes/errors.
One, two typographical errors in the GUI have been fixed.

The current version can be found (as always) in the Cloud Downloader’s main article by clicking the following link:

Update: Cloud Downloader 2.9.5

Cloud Downloader 2.9.5
Just a quick status update. Today I released the Cloud Downloader version 2.9.5. As might guess from the version number, the jump from 2.9 to 2.9.5 contains only minor changes.
So there are no new features included in the current release. Therefore I have worked on the stability of the entire application and fixed some bugs.
The current version can be found (as always) in the main blog post about the Cloud Downloader. Just follow the link below.
