This is the first release in the Banshee 1.0 series. This Alpha 1 release
does not have feature parity with previous Banshee releases (the last
being Banshee 0.13.2). This means there are a number of features in this
release that users may have come to know and love in Banshee that are
missing for the time being.
However, although this is an Alpha release, it is quite stable and has
many great new features and performance improvements which will be detailed
later. It has also been designed to be both installed and run in parallel
with previous Banshee releases, so you can test the release out without
breaking your stable Banshee setup.
Missing features include:
* No hardware support
- Audio CDs, CD Burning
- iPod, MTP, Mass Storage and other Digital Audio Player support
* Some plugins have not yet been ported to the new 1.0 architecture:
- Podcasting, DAAP/iTunes Music Sharing, Internet Radio
- Recommendations, Mini Mode, Bookmarks, Batch Cover Art Fetching
Do not despair, these features will be added back before the final 1.0
release. Many hardware related features are projected to land in the
Alpha 2 and 3 releases of Banshee 1.0. We expect releases in quick
succession leading up to the final 1.0 release.
Please read the full release notes on the Banshee Wiki for more details:

MODULE NOTES
OTHER NOTES
===============================================================================
* The location of the user configuration directory for Banshee changed from
~/.gnome2/banshee to and XDG based directory, typically ~/.config/banshee
These changes were made to ensure that you can run older Banshee releases
in parallel with new Banshee releases:
* The location of the user configuration directory for Banshee 1.x changed
from ~/.config/banshee to ~/.config/banshee-1 (where ~/.config is defined
by XDG policy)
* The banshee-official-plugins module has been merged with core, so
banshee-official-plugins is now obsolete
* libipoddevice (0.5.3) and ipod-sharp (0.6.3) are required for iPod support
* The base GConf path used for storing settings via the GNOME backend
changed from /apps/banshee to /apps/banshee-1; an XML configuration file
will be used if the GNOME backend extension is not installed
* Helix support has been removed from core and is now available from
the Helix Banshee community project. More information regarding Helix
support can be found at: http://helix-banshee.helixcommunity.org

DEPENDENCIES
===============================================================================
Features
--------
* Mono 1.2.2 (.NET 2.0 Profile / gmcs)
* SQlite 3.4
* Gtk# 2.8
* GStreamer 0.10.3
* Added Undo/Redo support to the track editor (BGO #465736)
* NDesk DBus (ndesk-dbus) 0.5
* NDesk DBus GLib (ndesk-dbus-glib) 0.3
* Mono.Addins (mono-addins) 0.3.1
* TagLib# (taglib-sharp) 2.0
Please note that for openSUSE, all of the dependencies above can be
found in the openSUSE Build Service, and are linked into the
Banshee:Preview project. Even if you build from source, if you wish
to avoid building the entire dependency chain above, add the
Banshee:Preview repository to your repository list.
Historically, Banshee has fostered development of a number of projects
and bundled their source code instead of depending on external builds.
Many of these dependencies have matured and grown into well maintained
projects on their own, and we are now depending on them externally. We
waited to remove the bundles long enough to allow for distributions to
ship packages to reduce the pain of building Banshee.

BUGZILLA OVERVIEW
NEW AWESOME FEATURES AND ENHANCEMENTS
===============================================================================
Noteworthy bugs fixes/enhancements embraced in this release
-----------------------------------------------------------
Banshee 1.0 Alpha 1 represents the first release since we began rewriting
much of the core of Banshee. The primary reason for rewriting this core
was to deliver much needed performance improvements.
Banshee now uses much less memory and has greatly improved startup speed.
It can handle collections that are much larger in size without adversely
affecting application speed or memory usage.
GNOME Bugzilla
These core architectural changes also allowed us to cleanly implement
many great new features and provides a framework for new features to
be easily developed in the future.
* 453420 - Fixed CD burning in GNOME 2.19.x+
* 457711 - Added new managed playlist parsing that eliminates the need for
totem-plparser (Aaron Bockover)
* 468216 - Support GZipped compressed HTTP streams from last.fm in the
recommendation plugin (Christian Krause)
* 451457 - Fixed parsing of similarity in recommendation plugin that would
allow it to surpass 100% in some locales (Aaron Bockover)
* 461596 - Expand $HOME and ~ in XDG user-dirs.dirs
New features in this release include:
Show all bugs marked FIXED during this release cycle
----------------------------------------------------
* Artist/Album Browser
* Powerful new query/search capabilities
* Playback from a dedicated source while interacting with other sources
* Play Queue taking control of playback over other sources when populated
* Tightly integrated Last.fm and Audioscrobbler support
* Create your own custom Last.fm radio stations to suit your tastes
* 10 band software equalizer (requires additional GStreamer dependencies)
