I think I speak for everyone when I say: WOOT! Great job!ReplyDelete
Awesome, its amazing how fast development is going! The one key feature Banshee is missing is folder watching support, hope that comes very, very soon!ReplyDelete
Seems that the feature I wanted the most, watch the library for changes, did not make it again... :/ReplyDelete
Banshee is so nice these days, great job! Has there been any progress on the Windows version?ReplyDelete
Please make search faster (haven't tried 1.2 yet so maybe you already have done that).ReplyDelete
But right now, with a few thousands songs, it's taking a long time to use the quick search. All while Amarok operates very fast and responsive. One thing that's holding me back from Banshee right now.
Great work. I've just updated it to have the radio support on openSUSE 11.0 and it works like a charm!ReplyDelete
Fantastic work Gabriel and the rest of the Banshee team! 1.2 is a killer release :)ReplyDelete
Really have been waiting for the Windows version for months.ReplyDelete
"Multi-Artist (Compilation) Album Support"ReplyDelete
Ah, excellent. I have a few albums like that and the album-browser got annoying quickly.
compilation support and cover.jpg support! You people are the best!ReplyDelete
Am I missing something? When it says:ReplyDelete
"Much improved performance and UI for automatic cover art fetching"
Where is the UI? When I click 'Tools->Cover Art->Download Cover Art' nothing happens.
Multi-artist album support is nice though :-)
@Sim: Yeah, that's basically the point w/ the cover art UI - it not longer pops up all the time - was very annoying. :) When you do that, it is checking if it needs to get any album art, but it must be too fast so it doesn't pop up the progress bar.ReplyDelete
I second the wait for the windows version. I hate to be stuck without a decent media player on the M$ side.ReplyDelete
On *IX Banshee is my player of choice :)
Keep up the good work!
Is there a way to get multi-artist albums to show up one heading in the artist broswer? like how 'Various Artists' is used for amarok.ReplyDelete
feature-wise banshee >= 1.0 is getting nice, but I am missing bug-fix releases.ReplyDelete
if I look at the bugtracker, there are a lot serious bugs.
why not work on them instead of creating new (not fully working) features?
@last anon: Did you miss the "Over 80 bugs fixed" statement about 1.2? We spent a ton of time fixing bugs. And 1.2.1, which is coming in four days, will have updated translations and probably a dozen or so more bug fixes.ReplyDelete
Aw crap, cover.jpg support, but no png? All my covers are pngsReplyDelete
