It took 2 years for this? Where is the customization? Visualizations? Features? Stability?

When I'm listening to a radio stream, the artist & title doesn't even show up.

The interface is terrible... it's like there is no room for anything. Plus when I maximize or resize the window, my lyrics/wikipedia boxes are all jacked up.

It crashed about 5 times within 20 minutes just from doing simple things like adding songs to a play list, browsing radio stations, moving the mouse, etc.

When I open it, I get an error about my soundcard not being available (and that it's going to the default). The sound works... but there are no settings to even change the sound device! Therefore, I would get this error every time I opened it.

</rant>

I installed by using the repositories in the Kubuntu section on their site (probably just doesn't integrate well with gnome yet).

The bugs aside (I'm sure they will get fixed), I really hope I'm not the only one who hates the interface, the lack of features, etc.

On a good note, I was glad that there was no need to configure an SQL database.

Either way, I'm back to 1.4 for now. It still rocks!
