for anyone interested (received on 14/04/04):

Hello AWS Users,

More than six months ago, our Developer Relations team began encouraging
you to upgrade your Amazon Web Services applications to take advantage of
bug fixes and features we worked hard to add to the service. We also
informed you that soon versions 1 and 2 of AWS would no longer be
supported. We are now taking that step and want to provide you with the
necessary information to prevent any potential inconvenience.

Beginning April 16, 2004, SOAP and XML references to the version 1 services
will no longer function and error messages will be returned. At this time
version 2 will not be deprecated. However, we still recommend that you
update your usage as described below.

To prevent any inconvenience to you or your customers, we urge you to
immediately replace all legacy calls to http://xml.amazon.com/onca/xml and
http://xml.amazon.com/onca/xml2 with calls to
http://xml.amazon.com/onca/xml3. If you are using SOAP, please download our
version 3.0 WSDL from
http://soap.amazon.com/schemas3/AmazonWebServices.wsdl and regenerate your
client application code.

If you require additional information, please visit the developer
discussion board via the Amazon Web Services homepage at
http://www.amazon.com/webservices.

Thank you for helping us to provide you with the best possible service.

Sincerely,

The Amazon Web Services Team

Yes, amazon dropped support for all older versions of their xml?. :( I
got an email, but I can't find it now.
The program "albumart" from freshmeat doesn't work either.

Sorry it took me a bit to get to this....

I am working on fixing the code to work with Amazon's new scheme and
testing it for any new bugs. Should have an update put up ASAP.

Thanks,
Victor

I just tested my amazon code with these new changes and it seems to work
ok, since my code is using their SOAP interface and not the XML
interface that got changed.

If anyone can reproduce a bug or any error, please let me know so I can
fix it.

Victor

seems to be working, but I haven't looked at the results (on the road the
next few days). Using it with -d, it looks like it's rescanning despite
the presence of an existing cover.jpg, but I'm not 100% sure.

Yikes, that's not good ;) I'll test on this end -- I think I see in the
code where this could be broken if you started tweaking the default
image names.
