Exaile released! | Music manager and Player

Exaile is released. Exaile is a music manager and player for GTK+ written in Python. It incorporates automatic fetching of album art, lyrics fetching, Last.fm scrobbling, support for many portable media players, internet radio such as shoutcast, and tabbed playlists.

Exaile is a bugfix release for 0.3.2. A short list of notable fixes:

  • The shoutcast plugin has been removed from the default install, as shoucast has changed their API and the new terms of service are not compatible with our license.
  • The default lyrics provider was changed to lyricwiki, as lyricfly no longer works properly.
  • A bug that prevented Exaile from running on very recent versions of pygobject was fixed.
  • A bug preventing files from being added via the CLI was fixed.
  • A number of additional minor issues were resolved.


Installation in Ubuntu and LinuxMint:

Open terminal and enter the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:exaile-devel/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install exaile

Is done.
