The next major release of the popular open source Songbird media player is available.
Well, actually the first major update to Songbird in six months came out yesterday, but there were some glitches in 1.4.1 and so today 1.4.2 came out.
“It wasn’t anything serious,” according to the Songbird blog about the need to release 1.4.2 so quickly, “just a UI glitch exposed during updates in which some remnants of the old Gonzo feather were showing up in the new Purple Rain feather, which made mashTape and LyricMaster hard to use.”
Songbird “feathers” are what we call themes.
Well Gonzo feathers and Purple Rain aside, the new Songbird features support for Mass Storage Class devices, the ability to rip CDs and automatically look up metadata using Gracenote.
