Banshee 2.1.3

Download Now

    Banshee 2.1.3 is the second release in the 2.1 development series leading up
to 2.2 (versions 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 were not released).

New Features

New custom support for the Barnes & Noble Nook

Support default internet radio stations

At first start, XSPF playlists in $datadir/banshee/stations/ are imported automatically. We don't provide default radio stations ourselves but this allows distros or other third parties to do so.

Other Enhancements

  • bgo#549173: Add "Stop when finished" option in the notification popup menu

  • bgo#636071: Get info from the database or the file when opening a URI

  • bgo#639805: Hide labels in the source pane when the group is empty

  • bgo#647306: Add support for the Notion Ink Adam tablet

  • bgo#651497: Motorola Atrix support

  • bgo#653255: Samsung Galaxy S2 support

  • bgo#653284: Remove keyboard shortcut for toggling scrobbling

  • bgo#653997: Samsung Galaxy Ace support

  • bgo#656526: Add "Smiley Face Curve" default equalizer

  • bgo#656670: Cache the ArtworkID in the database for faster startup

  • Various enhancements to our experimental GStreamer# backend, bringing it close to feature parity with our current C backend. It is still not built by default and not recommended for daily use, but testing is welcome.
