exaile 0.3.2

Exaile is a lightweight music player for the GNOME desktop but which also works great in XFCE or LXDE.

Version 0.3.2 RC1 has just been released and since the Exaile developer says:

It should be stable enough for normal use, and we’ll follow it with the final version shortly.

... I decided to upload it to the WebUpd8 PPA.

Changes in Exaile 0.3.2 release candidate 1:

  • Improved support for covers embedded in ogg and flac files
  • Gapless playback by default (via playbin2)
  • Many dialogs replaced with gtk InfoBars
  • Preference items that require a restart now prompt for it
  • Vastly improved lyricsviewer plugin
  • Drag and drop on the main cover display to set and retrieve covers
  • Track counts in collection panel
  • New tooltip for tray icon and minimode that displays cover and progress
  • Custom playback sink support
  • Display cover art when dragging from side panels
  • Read-only support for Matroska tags
