I have updated Podcast Tool – a lightweight program for managing podcast subscriptions. The major new feature is it now includes playback functionality. I have also made many optimisations, so working with shows that have hundreds of episodes no longer causes a slowdown. The reason for adding playback functionality is so I can keep track of the playback position, meaning you can pause a podcast, close the program and when you come back to it, Podcast Tool will resume from where you left off.
Shows are listed along the left side of the screen, with individual episodes on the right.
