Banshee 1.8

Right now, my package manager pacman (I am using Arch Linux) updated the music player Banshee. The last stable version 1.6.1 was updated to version 1.8.0.

The first things I recognized are:

  • Some new menu entries on the left, as Amazon MP3-Shop and Miro Guide
  • In the “tools” menu there is a new entry “correct meta-data”, a tool that easily removes typos in artists, albums or genres automatically
  • The symbol in the gnome panel has its transparent background back
  • When you listen to an audiobook and stop it, the place where you are is bookmarked automatically. Next time you can easily start at the same position.

Some nice improvements. Well done!


It was quite quiet for some time here.

I finished my time in Uganda and returned to Germany in September. Now I am a student at the Technical University Munich, for a Bachelors’ degree in computer science. My try to deal with time the Ugandan way and not to get stressed about time problems worked out. Unfortunately the little free time I had left I did not use it for PhYnformatik.

There are enough topics I want to write about, and I hope, that as a student I will have some time to write here.
