exaile 0.3.1

Exaile 0.3.1 has been released today. There are no new features since the beta, but a lot of bugs have been fixed.

Exaile 0.3.1. brings some pretty exiting new features (since 0.3.0):
  • A completely revamped and much more powerful tag editor
  • An equalizer!
  • Collection panel should now be faster
  • Better support for non-standard filename encodings
  • A standalone lyrics pane plugin
  • Plugins for DAAP music sharing support
  • Better display of compilation albums

You can download Exaile 0.3.1 source files from HERE. There is also an Ubuntu PPA, but there are no Exaile 0.3.1 packages available yet. However, you can install beta 4 from Exaile PPA. Because we didn't want to wait for the official Ubuntu builds, we've uploaded Exaile 0.3.1 in the WebUpd8 PPA for Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid.

To add the WebUpd8 PPA (which has many experimental packages so check it out before using it!), paste this in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8

Then install Exaile 0.3.1:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install exaile exaile-plugin-moodbar exaile-plugin-contextinfo

You can of course just download the .deb files instead of adding the PPA if you want: https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/webupd8/+packages

  • the db for 0.3.1 is not backwards compatible with 0.3.0. A backup of any existing 0.3.0 db will be made when you upgrade to enable easy downgrades, but it is advised that you make you own backup as well if you care about saved ratings, playcounts, etc.
  • the 64bit packages in the WebUpd8 PPA will start being built in about an hour.
