[Banshee-List] Banshee 0.10.5

Banshee 0.10.5 is out!

This release features a new database layer, which addresses potential
locking issues in 0.10.4. A new official plugin was added that allows
for special multimedia key support, configurable through the Gnome
keyboard shortcuts capplet.


This release contains mainly bug fixes. Gtk# 2.8 and GTK+ 2.8 is now a
requirement as Gtk# 2.8 is now stable and most distributions should be
shipping it.

   faster in some areas

   views. See the banshee-sample-plugin module in Banshee subversion:

* Bindings to the VLC libraries have been implemented and are available
as a Banshee Media Engine. To use the VLC engine, pass --enable-vlc to
configure. Additionally, libvlc.so must be copied to
banshee/mediaengines/vlc before running "make install". To build
libvlc.so, download and build Jon Lech Johansen's snd123:


Copy the resulting libvlc.so to the aforementioned build directory, and
proceed with building Banshee as normal. Keep in mind, VLC support is
optional. Banshee also supports GStreamer and Helix engines. GStreamer
is required, and Helix is optional, but will be automatically detected
and configured if your system is set up properly with either RealPlayer
or Helix Player. See http://helixcommunity.org/
