A new release candidate of lightweight music player Clementine is available for testing ahead of its soon-due 0.7 release.

Amongst the new features and improvements making their début in this release are:

  • A new “Edit track information” dialog
  • MusicBrainz tag fetching
  • CUE file support
  • “Duplicates only” and “Untagged songs only” library views
  • “Full library rescan” option
  • Support for network proxies
Duplicate and untagged list views are new in 0.7

“We look forward to any feedback that can be given.” Clementine contributor zacH told us earlier.

“Hopefully people will help find and squash any remaining bugs, and all issues can be reported to the Google code page. The best player on Linux just got better!”


Release Candidate builds  in pre-packaged .deb format can be found on code.google.com/p/clementine-player/downloads/. These can be installed via your preferred package manager.

Alternatively, for Natty users in particular, the release candidate can be installed via the Clementine Dev PPA @ ppa:me-davidsansome/clementine-dev
