Banshee 1.7.5 released with improved hardware support

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Grab your portable gadgets, even your iPhone. Banshee 1.7.5 is here with new hardware support and we need YOU to break it (and file bugs if you succeed naturally).

With 1.7.5 you will not just get all new and improved hardware support but also 47 bug fixes. Most notable of these writing metadata to video files is now supported.

Finally 1.7.5 brings support for the MPRIS protocol which amongst other things is used to power the new Sound Indicator in Maverick.

For the complete list of new features and enhancements the official release notes can be consulted.

To test on your Ubuntu install:

Banshee Active Development PPA or the Banshee Daily Build PPA to keep up with Banshee on a daily basis. Though at the time of writing packages have yet to reach these PPAs.
