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!
