Per an announcement on the Yahoo search blog:

  • The player may have been renamed "FoxyPlayer"
  • The player is now incorporated in Yahoo search to add full-song Rhapsody playback to music search results. For example, you'll see the player in these search results for "Madonna" (but only in the US etc etc).
  • The player can now play back full tracks provisioned by Rhapsody. If you are not a Rhapsody subscriber you'll get 25 listens a month free, then 30 second samples for the rest of the month.

The January 24, 2007 bleeding edge build has been debugged and promoted to the stable public build. Lots of improvements and one major new feature. See the blog announcement for complete documentation on the changes. The one important thing that *didn't* make it in was to flip all Linux browsers and all versions of Opera from blacklist mode (aka C-grade) to "sink or swim" mode (aka X-grade).

We now work in Firefox/Win, but don't work in IE anymore.

The domain for our final public site is in flux. We're not going to wait to finalize the domain before going live. URLs published during the initial stage before the final URL goes live will just be redirects.

Lucas gonze 20:12, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Still too buggy to release. We're heads-down on the typical closing stages of a major release. This could take a while.
