This new GIRL 2.0.0 release comes with updated Hungarian translation and support for NRK P1, P2, P3, P3 Ur??rt and University of Cape Town Radio in South Africa.

It is almost 5 months ago since I released GIRL 0.2.0 and I have
frankly no idea how many people who run this program to listen to
Internet radio. 16 people (see AUTHORS) have contributed to the
program so far.

If you find the program useful, drop me an email at ole@src.gnome.org.
The GIRL program is completely free, but you don’t have to do anything
else than run it on your computer in order to listen to Internet
radio. You are also free to fork it as long as you follow the license
terms in GNU GPL version 2, but I would appreciate if you send patches
instead of releasing your own version. Send patches through Bugzilla
on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=girl

You could install and run GIRL on free GNU/Linux systems (such as Debian
GNU/Linux available from http://www.debian.org/ and Fedora Linux available
from https://getfedora.org/ with the provided binary packages) and listen to
58 supported Internet radio stations around the world if you have installed
the Videos application (https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Videos) from the GNOME
