gxine 0.3 released


gxine 0.3 has just been released.

gxine is an advanced gtk media player style frontend for xine. it
features gnome as well as kde desktop integration (registers itself in
nautilus, konqueror and registers menu entries - if you want it to) and
comes with a mozilla browser plugin so you can watch media streams on
the internet (it emulates windows media player / real player / quicktime
browser plugins and starts gxine on the embedded streams).

while gxine is still in it's early stages of developement it is quite
usable already.

Besides a major code cleanup and the port to gtk 2.0
this new release brings a lot of new features and improvements such as
the use of xml for playlists and other config files, a javascript engine
for remote control and scritability, lirc support, a keybindings editor
and menu-selectable visualizations. The mozilla plugin has also been
upgraded and should now run in newer mozilla builds and can emulate the
real player and quicktime plugins.
