Where are the New Releases?

Posted on September 2, 2013 by | Posted in about LibriVox, News, site & admin | Comments: 3 Comments

Many of you have noticed that our New Releases feed hasn’t been working for some time.

We are in the middle of a major overhaul of our infrastructure. The New Releases RSS feed will resume once our new catalog goes online, but we have not fixed a date for that.

We still produce and release new books every day. You can keep an eye on our new releases through our archive.org portal:
http://archive.org/details/librivoxaudio – click the “All items (most recently added first)” link.

Thanks for your patience and sorry for the confusion!

A flood of new audiobooks for you

Posted on October 12, 2011 by | Posted in about LibriVox, For Volunteers, News, site & admin, Uncategorized | Comments: 12 Comments

We are delighted to report that we have been able to recommence the cataloguing of completed audiobooks. Indeed, 29 have been added in the last 24 hours, and there are many more to come.

Most audiobooks have now had their RSS and iTunes links restored. The rest should be added within the next few days.

The New Releases feed had only appeared broken because there was nothing to put in it. It is now full of goodies for your edification and enjoyment.

Have fun!

Problems with newly catalogued items

Posted on September 27, 2011 by | Posted in about LibriVox, For Volunteers, News, site & admin, Uncategorized | Comments: 8 Comments

Hello, everybody! We have another problem, I’m afraid. Plus ça change, eh? ;)

Further parts of the LibriVox site were migrated last night to a new server, and although it has restored the list of New Releases on the home page, it has unfortunately broken the catalogue pages of some of our new(ish)ly catalogued audiobooks.

If you encounter a LibriVox catalogue page which has no download links, all audio files can be obtained directly from the Internet Archive. Please visit the LibriVox page on the Internet Archive and search for the title in Audio Books & Poetry.

Additionally, you will find all our new releases by going to the LibriVox details page and scrolling down until you see This Just In.

We are hoping this will be fixed very soon.

EDITED TO ADD 10th Oct.: All book catalogue pages should now be complete, except for some which are still missing their RSS and iTunes feeds. We are working on this.

Also, it should not be many days before we can start cataloguing new audiobooks again. Recording has continued apace during this enforced break, so there are a number ready to catalogue. We are champing at the bit to get moving again. :D
