"Audacious was forked from Beep Media Player, which was
also based on XMMS but development was discontinued in 2006.
Audacious is currently maintained and the latest version was
released in July this year. For a tutorial on installing the latest
release in Ubuntu 9.04, check out this tutorial I've put up a while
"The version I used for this review is 2.1 as it comes included
currently in the Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic repositories. Audacious comes
with the typical, simple interface some of you are used from XMMS.
It includes a main window with regular play/pause/stop and volume
buttons, a 10-band equalizer and the playlist itself."
