So it's been some years since a new version of xmms was released, but
the xmms2 post on the home page insists that xmms is not dead. There
is a nice page showing which features will be in the next release but
I think even that is more than a year old.
Is there a todo list for getting out a new stable version? Can
somebody impose a freeze and set a target date?
I've always liked xmms and I'm not fond of any of the newer music
players. For myself I'm happy to use cvs but I hate to see xmms
stagnate in this way.
I must second that. XMMS is a rich application with attractive skins and many
valuable extensions. It is also very easy-to-use and stable (unlike the
application I will refer to below).
I have used XMMS for years, but recently I bought another machine which
to have AmaroK pre-installed. Ever since that day, I cannot help but feel that
XMMS leaves me behind. AmaroK uses extensions from XMMS, it is *not* stable,
but its management of playlist is astounding. Lyrics and album cover are just
few among its many astounding capabilities, so I hope XMMS development is
brought back to life.
I still use XMMS endlessly, but I have seen the neighbour's garden and it is
slowly getting greener. Since AmaroK is integrated with KDE, XMMS might soon
become the GNOMErs choice. Having said that, I don't know what implication
SuSE's recent move to GNOME will have.
