Podget is a simple podcast aggregator optimized for running as a scheduled background job (i.e. cron). It features support for downloading podcasts from RSS and XML feeds, for sorting the podcasts into folders and categories, for importing podcast URLs from iTunes PCAST files and OPML lists, automatic M3U and ASX playlist creation, and automatic cleanup of old podcasts. It also features automatic UTF-16 conversion for podcasts hosted on Windows servers and includes the ability to handle authentication for premium podcasts.

Release Notes: This release adds the ability to handle authentication for premium podcasts by the user, adding a couple of tags (USER: and PASS:) to the podcast description in their serverlist file.
Release Notes: Several updates, including the ability to disable playlist creation, a filename format fix that should support feeds hosted on Apple iTunes, fixes for some date format issues for the playlist name, and a few others.
Release Notes: The filename format fix checks were updated so that they do not produce an error if that fix is not defined in your podgetrc. filename_formatfix9 was created to address issues with the Audioboo feed URL format. "?keyed=true&source=rss" was removed from the enclosure URL. String matches were made as generic as possible so that they might work for other feeds.
Release Notes: The default contents of the configuration file (podgetrc) was updated to further explain the SModcast updates.
Release Notes: A SModcast issue was fixed using a filename format fix that works in conjunction with filename_formatfix4. All but one of the filename format fixes were moved to a new function. This cleans up the main loop, making it easier to understand and maintain.
