Xfce’s Parole Media Player Gets First Update In Over a Year

parole xfce media player

Xfce’s Parole media player has just seen its first major update in over a year.

Parole 0.9.0 brings a number of new features to Linux desktops, including a new mini-mode, working ‘play’ and ‘replay’ icons in the content area, and the window title and content title show the filename if no corresponding ID3 tag is detected.

Changes of a more technical slant include deprecated API calls, re-enabled support for double buffering with the X11/XV video outputs, and the ability to load plugins by name instead of full path.

Parole is a free, open source media player designed for the Xfce desktop but pretty much able to run everywhere else too.
