Re: Introducing Muine, Rhythmbox in 2.8 and other things

I agree here. Even after importing a folder, your playlist remains blank. There's no status bar or confirmation that n songs were imported , so that means I have to go set up a playlist. Maybe a "what next" dialog would help, but is that really standard?

I know this is really Rhythmbox feature, and we're trying to get away from that with Muine, but a "view library" button, or even a status bar at the bottom reporting how many songs are in my library seems appropriate here.

On another note, I've noticed 2 things about importing folders:

1) If you import a folder, and then add songs to it afterward, Muine doesn't update your folder contents, and you have to re-add the folder to get the files. I've done it on the fly (with Muine still open), and after closing and re-opening Muine. 2) #1 causes you to have multiple copies of everything, i.e., if I have Song A in my library, add Song B, then re-import, I now have 2 copies of Song A and one copy of Song B. This is probably an easy fix (or my copy is busticated), and if I knew C# better, I'd probably attach a patch.

Has anybody else seen this, and/or should I file bug(s)?
