The current PA version of Infrarecorder has some serious issues, not from PA, but because it is using an older version on Infrarecorder.
Specifically, on some systems, it hangs forever. This is a known issue with IR 0.46.1.
I know that JTH has listed Infrarecorder on the Development Test page as "Needs Updating", and it has been so for a while.
Also, I haven't seen the last person to develop this app as portable (Travis) on the forums since last fall, so I assume he has gone on to bigger and better things.
Just changing to 0.46.2 will make this functional again.
And Christian Kindahl's roadmap for IR shows that he will be continuing to develop and improve it, so the project will need a PA developer for the foreseeable future.
Has anyone got any interest in picking up this project?
