I'm in Boston this week working with Aaron and hanging out with Miguel and others. In between amazing people with the XO retroscope, we've been busy getting Banshee 0.13.2 out - and it's here! Support for new iPods, a Last.fm plugin (see below), updated TagLib#, and lots of other fixes and features got in during this long release cycle. Over 10 people contributed to this release - thanks to everybody! Aaron has blogged about the release too.
Screencast demoing the new Last.fm radio plugin. Ogg/Theora, 69 seconds, 4.1 MB.
Besides Last.fm server errors, which cause some songs to be skipped, and a bug where new stations don't show songs on the first run, the plugin works great. I discovered five new artists with it and already bought their CDs.
We will do one more release off the stable branch within the next couple weeks to fix the Last.fm new station bug and make the new MTP support rock solid before we focus 100% on trunk.
