Banshee 1.5.5 is mostly a bug fix release, with a few enhancements. This release marks the start of our string freeze in preparation for 1.6.
Gapless Playback / Playbin2
Banshee now uses the playbin2 GStreamer element. With this comes support for gapless playback, which is the default now for users with GStreamer > 0.10.25.2.
We are debuting a new grid mode for our custom list widget, visible
in the modified Album browser. It will be used for Videos,
Audiobooks, and more in future releases.
This extension shows YouTube videos in the Context Pane related to what you’re playing, and lets you watch them within Banshee. You can enable it in the Extensions tab of the Preferences dialog.
- Improve search responsiveness on large libraries
- Add icons for Nexus One and Audiobooks
- Play Queue item count, size, duration now ignores old tracks
- Muinshee fixes: disable Auto-DJ, allow reordering, hide previous song
