Sebastian Dröge
These features are found in the banshee-official-plugins module, not in
Banshee core:
* The new recommendations pane lets you browse similar artist recommendations
found on last.fm (http://www.last.fm/group/banshee) as you listen; you can
even re-discover related music already in your library that you may
have been neglecting
* The podcast source offers an easy to use interface for subscribing to,
downloading, managing, and listening to your favorite shows.
* Use the Mini Mode feature to condense the interface and gain valuable
desktop space. Switch between your library, playlists, and devices
within Mini Mode.

* Bindings to the VLC libraries have been implemented and are available
as a Banshee Media Engine. To use the VLC engine, pass --enable-vlc to
configure. Additionally, libvlc.so must be copied to
banshee/mediaengines/vlc before running "make install". To build
libvlc.so, download and build Jon Lech Johansen's snd123:
http://nanocrew.net/2005/09/20/snd123/
Copy the resulting libvlc.so to the aforementioned build directory, and
proceed with building Banshee as normal. Keep in mind, VLC support is
optional. Banshee also supports GStreamer and Helix engines. GStreamer
is required, and Helix is optional, but will be automatically detected
and configured if your system is set up properly with either RealPlayer
or Helix Player. See http://helixcommunity.org/
