The latest master for version 1.50 is available at http://banshee-project.org/download/development/ There are excellent installation instructions there too, so you shouldn't have any trouble with it. As I said before, I would urge you to install it and check it out thoroughly before passing judgment on the product. It is a huge leap forward from version 1.43.
While I appreciate that we all have differing opinions and that free speech is a valuable commodity, I, too have the right to it. The above opinion is far from FUD, but the truth. I have installed Banshee multiple times (and reinstalled more than that) on different systems, on different OS versions, etc., and the issues that I am pointing out (that I have previously pointed out here, never getting a straight answer or any useful reply) are MY experience and obviously the experience of others, noted by reading the posts here. "File a bug" is hardly a helpful response to a question. The latest version of Banshee that I see available is 1.4.3...this version has been out for some time and did nothing to solve any of the aforementioned problems. This version does NOT appropriately support the G1 as advertised (a fact echoed by many), and the cover art management is abysmal. You can tell me I'm wrong, but I'm stating that this is MY experience with this package. This is also the experience that many others have noted. I'm sorry if some people think that the truth (and the request for intelligent input and responses) is FUD. I have asked here many times for input on these issues and have received responses similar to the these. This is sad. A logical response offering some assistance or possibly asking further questions IS appropriate. Simply telling someone to "file a bug" is not helpful or appropriate. Not every user wants to or has time to file bugs. These are simple questions and if someone thinks that I and others are either stupid or lying about G1, iPod and cover art support, then feel free to point me (and the many others here who have asked about this) in some positive direction. precipitous wrote:Rickstone: Before passing such harsh and (in my opinion) false judgment, I would ask you to install the latest master for version 1.5. A huge number of issues from version 1.43 have been resolved, and it works wonderfully. I think that it is definitely the BEST choice for a default player for future releases of Ubuntu. Rhythmbox is clunky, awkward, and never going to get any better, whereas Banshee is easy, sexy, has great Last.fm support, and is continually evolving...

Banshee is a completely unusable mess at this point and with release dates pushed back further and further and no fixes for advertised yet broken functionality nowhere on the horizon, this would be a huge mistake. Rhythmbox may not be sexy, but it's rock solid. gabaug wrote: Ubuntu is holding its Developer Summit, and having a session right *now* (just about to start) about whether to make Banshee the default media application. You can listen in at http://icecast.ubuntu.com:8000/room3.ogg.m3u There may be a Gobby document created at http://gobby.ubuntu.com/ at some point. You can probably chat on IRC about it on freenode, #ubuntu-devel-summit The Blueprint document that originated this session is here: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-karmic-default-media-player-choice .
