The main noted features are a new shuffle feature that lets you shuffle by artist, album, rating, score etc and a new ‘Auto DJ’ that keeps your play queue topped up with music. This mode also utilises the new shuffle feature and allows you to add queue items by artists, album, score, etc.

Support for syncing with more devices is added ” including those running webOS (Palm Pre) and Android (G1, Galaxy, etc)

There were over 130 bugs fixed and 20 other enhancements added since 1.5.0.
