  • Fix for loading a new song when clicking "play" first thing after application startup, wasn't working with vlc and gStreamer phonon backends.

New in version 0.4.1 (January 27th, 2012)

  • The "Now Playing" plasma applet now supports Mpris2 dbus interface so I could finally test support for this in BoomBox. Found a couple of issues and fixed those.

New in version 0.4 (April 4th, 2011)

  • Added titles to the toolbars, shown when right-clicking on a dockwidget.
  • Renamed some actions to sound better
  • Added the actions for the collection tab to the shortcuts editor
  • Changed the function of "New Playlist" now saves current settings under new name instead of starting a new blank one.
  • Compile fix for ubuntu 10.04

New in version 0.4 RC1 (March 25th, 2011)

  • Finally I have something good enough for a release! Took some two years... but during those two years I have also quite happily used it full time for myself.
  • So now I'm hoping to get some feedback on how this works for everybody else, hopefully it can reach more people thanks to the excellent build service that opensuse provides! Also big thanks to lubos lunak for the nice kde-obs-generator!
  • Please comment below for any feedback/questions, much appreciated! There is no documentation yet, hoping to have time for that soon (and also hoping that it isn't really needed!)
