New version of Podfriend out.

Now with support for <podcast:location>

Here's an example:

I plan to do a bit more with the location tag, like showing a preview of the map before you click. But I'm pretty happy with how it works on both mobile and desktop right now.

@martin That's beautiful Martin! I should have started with location instead of person. Person is somehow harder, which is counter-intuitive to me.

@dave @martin Castopod implementation for <podcast:person> is finished!
Just need to review code before releasing it officially. (I may deploy it early to for testing purpose…)

@Castopod @dave I'll be ready to implement it one of the next days as soon as you have it in a feed!

@dave @Castopod lol, either something is very wrong in the Podfriend world or you defined the coordinates for Austin Texas being in China :D

@martin @Castopod Did I? Well, crap. That's what we call "winging it". Will check.

@Castopod @martin Please do. I need more feeds to test the aggregator against.

@dave @martin It is 00h01 here in Paris so we are yesterday's tomorrow: has <podcast:person> tag up&running.

@Castopod @dave @martin
Looks great, functions well. One minor thing noticed on season 4, episode 4, a single person with two credits shows an avatar for both writing and art.

@derek @dave @martin That was not a bug, that was a feature… 😁
But I corrected it. 😉

@martin Just noticed an interesting bug. The HTML title shows a different podcast than the one I'm viewing. Maybe cached somewhere in local storage?

@dave Actually it always shows the title of what you have playing, not what you are browsing.

I'm unsure if it's counter intuitive - the reason is that (and I guess this is mostly for windows) I want the title in the taskbar (and on the window) to be that of what you're listing - a bit like Spotify/iTunes/etc.

But of course this mostly comes from the desktop version. I'm unsure if it should behave like this in the browser.
