iPod-last.fm bridge update

Yoda, Darth and a shuffle by yinyang from flickr (CC-NC-ND)Good news for all iPod-owning last.fmers (doesn't it sound cool to be an "iPod-owning last.fmer" ...). New version of iPod-last.fm bridge just got released and can be downloaded here.

Changes in the new release:

  • Config moved to a separate file
  • Timezone handling fixed - it should now work automatically as long as timezone on the computer and on the iPod are set correctly
  • Much more readable data format
  • Official client id from last.fm
  • A script to extract song ratings from iPod
  • Some compatibility issues fixed
The things that's still missing is a decent README file. I hope comments in config.rb are enough, but if you have any questions, problems, or praise ;-), don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for throwing this together.
It doesn't work with the ipod-shuffle though, since it doesn't keep track of the playcount. You might want to point that out somewhere in the readme.
