Banshee 1.5.5 was just released, the new release comes with many new features and improvements, more than 26 bugs were fixed since the last release. The new features included in this version are gapless playback, a grid album browser, and a YouTube extension.
Gapless Playback / Playbin2
Banshee now uses the playbin2 GStreamer element. With this comes support for gapless playback, which is the default now for users with GStreamer > 0.10.25.2.
We are debuting a new grid mode for our custom list widget, visible in the modified Album browser. It will be used for Videos, Audiobooks, and more in future releases.
This extension shows YouTube videos in the Context Pane related to what you’re playing, and lets you watch them within Banshee. You can enable it in the Extensions tab of the Preferences dialog.
