Waif 0.59.7

Waif is a console audio unfrontend.
Waif is a console audio unfrontend. That means that between the business of choosing the files to listen to and listening to them, there is no interface to hijack a controlling terminal, hog up screen space, or waste a perfectly good xterm.

It also ends the hassle of restarting a player moving from one display to another. Waif works all its magic in the background leaving you free to do more important work.

Waif is flexible and robust, supporting a wide number of file formats (MP3, Ogg, WAV, RealPlayer, MIDI, audio CD, and more) and a wide number of helper applications including mpg123, mpg321, ogg123, freeamp, and xmms.

What's New in This Release:

ID3v2 is now supported with the ~/.waifrc configuration file entry:


Id3lib and id3v2 are required for id3v2 support.

CD tracks listed in show output that have CDDB information will be aligned now, e.g.,

* Now Playing *
[ 1] (CD Track 2) Eric Clapton - Bad Boy
* show format : 9 - 10 *
[ 9] (CD Track 10) Eric Clapton - Don't Know Why
[10] (CD Track 11) Eric Clapton - Let It Rain

Are there any more show cases where alignment needs to be fixed?
