There was a small problem with PM123 beta-3, that would cause an innocuous error message upon closing PM123 if the MP3 file was not selected from a Playlist. I'm happy to report that Dmitry has already corrected the problem, and refreshed beta 3. In my own testing, it is now working
perfectly. In fact, don't be misled by the incremental version number given to the 1.32 releases. Most developers would have called it 2.0 by now. :-)
If you downloaded PM123 before this morning (PST), please download it again (same link below). If you haven't downloaded it yet, what are you waiting
for? This is one damn fine bit of OS/2 PM programing!
My original post follows:
PM123 is an excellent open source PM based digital audio player for OS/2.
It is capable of playing MP3's, WAV-files, Ogg Vorbis audio files, and audio CDs. PM123 supports audio streaming, plugins, skins, visualization and more! There is also excellent documentation in .INF format.
Originally developed by Samuel Audet and Taneli Leppa, it is now being developed by Dmitry Steklenev. Credit is also given to Marcel Muller for several fixes, and new features.
This latest version includes MANY new features, fixes, and improvements over version 1.31. See the history file for details.
