KPodder started life as BPConf is a simple KDE configuration frontend for BashPodder by Linc Fessenden (http://linc.homeunix.org:8080/). KPodder has evolved a bit more since then but is basically the same thing with more options and a more flexible script.
KPodder is for collecting podcasts from across the web. Simply select the feeds, where you want them saved, and it will collect the files for you. You can check what casts are available from a feed, and alter what casts are marked as already downloaded.
You can ask it to check on your feeds by simply hitting check Now, or ask the program to set up a cronjob to do that for you on a regular basis. All the feeds can be checked at the same time or individually.
What's New in This Release:
· Changed the name, Added sub directory types and individual feed intervals. Changes to script for new features, and also moved script to be in path. Changed around configuration files so they sit in KPodder's kde user direcory rather than the data directory.
