Muine 0.1

Hi,

I just released Muine 0.1.

Muine is a music player for GNOME. It has a music library, but in a very different way from Rhythmbox and Jamboree. I personally find this much more comfortable to use.

It is written in C and C#, uses Gtk# for its UI, GStreamer for music playback, GNU dbm for data storage, libid3tag for ID3 tag reading and libvorbis for ogg tags.

Requirements

  • GNOME >= 2.2
  • GStreamer 0.6.x
  • Gtk# >= 0.15
  • gdbm
  • libid3tag >= 0.15.0b
  • Ogg Vorbis >= 1.0

Changes

This is the first official release.

Cheers,
