To give it a try, first read the instructions and then head over to the download page. Be sure to read the FAQ if you have any problems.


October 3, 2010 - New version is out! Not only does this (hopefully) fix all problems with non-Latin characters in song titles, but it also uses more dynamic memory allocation so that there are no arbitrary limits on profile or status message size.
