This release brings a preliminary version of the Nepomuk Collection plug-in for storing track statistics and metadata, and statistics synchronization between collections and with Last.fm. The File Browser's behavior and appearance were greatly improved, and audio CD playback was resurrected (at least with recent phonon-gstreamer). A total of over 470 bugs were closed. There is a completely updated handbook.
Major feature enhancements, Major bugfixes, Stable
The visual design was tweaked, removing the status bar at the bottom, and replacing it with more focused notifications up top, or where they make most sense. You’ll also see some nice new visual effects in the layout as well. The new Dynamic Playlist should be easier to understand. Some of the functionality changes are: a new AlbumPlay example playlist, a Quiz-play bias that will pick a song that starts with the same character the last one ended with, and preventing duplicate tracks. You will notice that you can now drag and drop on Collections, to copy or move within Local Music.
