Last podcast servlet v. 1.3

This component lets you download the latest media file (e.g. the latest mp3 file) from the given podcast. You can provide URL for podcast's RSS feed as a parameter for this servlet and component will download the latest data file from that podcast. E.g. you can use this servlet with some flash player on your site for getting the latest data from podcast. How to use it:

1) download lastpodPackage.jar and save it in WEB-INF/lib
