 * 228720 - Do not show more than one 'now playing' indication
 * 249494 - Ensure gdk_set_program_class is called so windows don't group
 * 248831 - Ensure local stations will load even if remote ones can't

Other untracked fixes
---------------------

 * Clicking Play in the radio source when nothing is playing already will
   now start playback based on selection in the station list

 * In the volume button, do not show the slider dock when scrolling, instead
   just show the tooltip

 * Audio profile configuration dialog can be resized in X direction and has
   a good minimum width; use TextViewLabel instead of Label to provide good
   word wrapping

   [1] This list is actually only accurate since 0.11.3. I need to grep the
   ChangeLog to build a complete list. If your name is missing here, feel
   free to let us know, or just wait for it to appear in a later release.

Something to share with friends and family
------------------------------------------

   We hit the 2000th commit in Banshee Subversion between 0.11.4 and 0.11.5!

Thanks!

   Enjoy the release! We appreciate your support and involvement!
