Support for firmware 2.x

SharePod 3.8.8 will support the new iPhones and iTouches!! This is largely thanks to a lot of hard work by a couple of very smart people.

It will also be able to add your copied music into iTunes automatically - no more importing the SharePod_iTunes_Import.xml. This also means that ratings and playcounts will be shown correctly in iTunes.

I hope to release 3.8.8 next week - and at the same time clean up the forums.

Thanks Jeff, did you add the iTunes copy to the library export function or is it external? Looking forward to writing to my iPhone 3G :-).

Hi,

I did implement auto-add to iTunes yes. But not using the iTunes SDK. Its slow and makes iTunes open its main window (and sync connected iPods/download podcasts etc), when all you want is to add some tracks/playlists behind the scenes.

So I spent last week writing the iTunes LibraryEditor which updates the iTunes library file directly. It won't be part of SharePodLib but will be available to buy separately. Will send a link when its ready.

thanks jeff. using the com method is really painfully slow. I'll wire you the money as soon as I get the link.

This looks like a big step. I can't wait to see it in action.
