libgnome removal is done, GtkBuilder is partly done (not in svn, no
patches anywhere).  Looks like the just-released glade 3.6.0 will be
required to edit most of the GtkBuilder files, so this will probably
have to wait a while.

decodebin2 is done.  The main effect of this is that chained ogg streams
work when crossfading is enabled.

playbin2 is being worked on (slowly) here: - the current code
needs to be reworked to allow for gapless playback.  Requires a current
git build of gst-plugins-base for visualization to work properly.

Haven't done anything about this lately, but the latest patch here: could use some testing.

No patches anywhere, but I'm working on this.  This will also fix
problems with .m4a podcasts always showing up as 'failed', incidentally.

Patch here: - some UI
feedback needed.

In other news, we can now transfer album art to mtp devices (only tested
with one moderately broken device) and ipods (needs some investigation as
it apparently doesn't work).
