GrowLCDproc 1.3.8 Available

Growl Claw

GrowLCDproc 1.3.8 is now available for download.

GrowLCDproc 1.3.8 adds true coalescing support, iTunes ratings support and improved display format. This means you will no longer get multiple screens for different songs if you skipped a song once it started. Also, the number of stars you have given a song will be translated by GrowLCDproc into asterisks. A marquee scroll is now used to improve readability for longer single-line messages. Finally, vertical scrolls have had the speed reduced and horizontal scrolls have been sped up slightly.

See it in action.

Take a look at the documentation.

Download the latest version now.

Why don't you just make an LCDproc driver for the display? It should be very easy and much more flexible than the client you have. I dealt with the same issue with my Mac OS X LCD Kit, witing a small command-line client which I was constantly having to update to deal with formatting, etc. I ended up just writing a driver for LCDproc. I would be happy to help you out with it if you need.
I am not releasing the source to GrowLCDproc at this time. I have released a lot of source to the LCDproc project though, and I would encourage you to do that also.
