News for February 2011

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.

Improved scrobbling

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.

Flattr support

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.

You can see an example of this in action on the page for paniq’s song ‘Heavy Working Robot’ which was featured in this month’s podcast.
