Foobnix 0.2.3

Foobnix (click HERE for our initial Foobnix review) 0.2.3 has been released today, fixing a lot of the bugs in the previous versions, including some which caused display errors with most GTK themes. But that's not all that's new in the latest Foobnix 0.2.3 - changes in the latest version include:
  • Music folders in one or multiple tabs
  • Compact pull-down menu, the ability to display the menu as a panel
  • Improved CUE support
  • Customizable user themes (these are more like personas) - you can basically add any wallpaper / image as a background for Foobnix
  • Transparency of the main window
  • The tabs are now saved and restored when you start Foobnix
  • Actions on tabs (close, open, rename)
  • Improved performance and better startup speed
  • Many bugs fixed
