Banshee 2.1.4, the third* development snapshot leading to Banshee 2.2, has been officially released.

2.1.4 is a bug fix update and comes hot on the heels of Banshee 2.1.3 which popped out into release-ville last month. That release brought support for the shipping of ‘default internet radio stations’ by Linux distributions, as well as chucking in support for various hardware devices. These included: –

  • Motorola Atrix
  • Motorola Ace
  • Samsung Galaxy S2
  • Notion Ink Adam tablet
  • Custom support for the Barnes & Noble Nook

Full release notes for the 2.1.3 release can be found here and for the 2.1.4 release here.


Banshee 2.1.4 can be downloaded as source from the Banshee website.

Banshee 2.1.3 - released late August – can be installed from the ‘Banshee Unstable‘ PPA. This PPA will be updated with 2.1.4 within the coming weeks.

We don’t recommend adding this PPA without being fully aware of the perils that development software brings.

*Banshee 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 were not released
