Listen downloads all podcasts of a new podcast feed instead of just the most recent one

Bug #305376 reported by Jim Campbell on 2008-12-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
listen (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: listen

In Listen version 0.5-5ubuntu2 (on Xubuntu 8.10), setting a new podcast feed url in the player causes the player to download all available podcasts for that feed. This can result in several hundreds of megabytes of files being queued for download.

The player should be able to identify only the most recent podcast in the feed, and begin downloading just the most recent files. Prior podcasts could be downloaded at the user's discretion.

The Banshee music player is able to implement this functionality. It would be great if Listen could take this approach, too.
