Banshee 2.0 Released

Banshee, my favourite music player, hits 2.0. This cross platform music player has added many useful features in this new version. It also has lots of bugfixes. Banshee is available for Linux, Mac and Windows also!

Artist/Album Browser Track Actions

Track actions (play, queue, remove, delete, edit, properties) now work for the artist and album browser too! Right click an artist or album to act on it, or click an album and press ‘q’ to queue it.

Play After’ Queue Options

Want to listen to a track, album, or artist right after the playing track, album, or artist? The ‘Play After’ option will insert it into the queue to make it happen.

User Interface Improvements

We got rid of the active source’s title bar. Search is now beside the volume button. The source list has smaller icons, hidden counts for the libraries, and named group-separators. The seek slider and search entry are resizable via their grips.

Podcasts episodes are now shown in a grid, with several lines of description shown to help you find an appealing episode to enjoy.

Ubuntu One Music Store and SoundMenu Extensions

These two extensions have been moved from Banshee Community Extensions and are now core Banshee extensions.


Added support for embedded and external-file subtitles.
