[Rhythmbox-devel] Rhythmbox 0.5.0


I am pleased to announce another release of Rhythmbox to the world.  For
the impatient, here's a quick link to the source code:


This is a very important release for several reasons:

First of all, the netRhythmbox branch has been merged back into the
Rhythmbox mainline.  It is always a good thing when a fork is resolved

Secondly, a very large number of outstanding bugs have been quashed, and
a number of new features have been added.  This release was a long time
in the making, and we feel that it is quite solid and usable.  The code
base is also cleaner in many respects, and I think this bodes quite well
for the future.

Thirdly, maintainership of Rhythmbox has switched hands again.  On
behalf of the whole Rhythmbox team, I'd like to thank the previous
maintainer, Jorn Baayen, for his great work on Rhythmbox.  His design
influence can be seen in almost every part of the code.  Jorn has moved
on to other things, and we wish him well at whatever he does next!  
I am happy to be your new Rhythmbox coordinator/patch monkey.

Finally, we have a redesigned website, for your viewing pleasure:

So with all that out of the way, here are the changes in Rhythmbox
