This year GNU FM and Libre.fm are proud to be taking part in the Google Summer of Code under the GNU banner. Interested students can find a list of our suggested ideas here:

Improved artist tools
It’s now possible for artists to add their tracks directly to Libre.fm themselves, rather than having to rely upon our imports from other services.
More artist images
A lot more artist pages should now also show a picture of the artist in question.
A number of bug fixes have been made which should result in even more robust scrobbling, with better support for very long track names and improved support for forwarding scrobbles on to Last.fm.
The largest change recently has been the addition of support for flattr, a micro-donation service that makes it very simple to “tip” your favourite artists. Artists can easily associate a flattr username with their Libre.fm account, after which flattr buttons will automatically appear on both their artist page and on each individual song page.
Additionally the html5 audio player will now display an appropriate flattr button whenever a flattrable artist is played on our radio streams.
