Zekr 0.7.5 beta 2 Is Available
Saturday, 07 November 2009 05:14

Zekr 0.7.5 beta 2 is now quickly available after beta 1. New features are: 

  • Old audio recitation files are auto-converted to the new format.
  • Keyboard shortcuts can now be customized through a file res/config/shortcut.xml.
No need to mention again that we compile against Java 5 and our Mac OS X package is using Cocoa.


Zekr 0.7.5 beta 1 Released
Saturday, 31 October 2009 10:47

We are happy to announce a new version of Zekr: 0.7.5 beta 1. It's more than a year with no new releases, so it's my pleasure to make the project active again. From this version, we need a Java 5 or higher.

In this release we replaced flash-based mp3 player with a pure-Java mp3 player. In addition, we now support ogg, speex (.spx) and wave. Supporting newer formats is now done seamlessly by simply adding one or two .jar files to [zekr]/lib folder.

Recitation files (.properties) are fully re-designed and made so simpler. As a result older recitation .properties files are not recognized anymore. Zekr comes with 7 online recitations. More can be downloaded from resource page. Please note that you do not need to remove or re-download whole mp3 files. You should just update your .properties file (which is usually less than 2kb).

Zekr now supports proxy for accessing network, although no GUI yet. You can set proxy details in config file for all network accesses: e.g. check for update, playing online recitations, etc.

From this version, our Mac release is using Cocoa. 

Zekr 0.7.1 is Available
Friday, 05 September 2008 20:57

Zekr 0.7.1 is available for download. This is a bug-fix release over 0.7.0. There are some bug fixes and a new feature introduced in this release. Online recitations are now playing more smoothly, as a buffering scheme is added to prevent lags between playing two subsequent ayas. This pre-fetching method is mainly inspired from Tanzil.net JavaScript pre-fetching code.
