    When is Banshee 1.4 supposed to come out?

    i looked at their slides from GUADEC 2008 and it said that 1.4 would be coming in Sept. Im really geeked about the release b/c it'll have Gnome Do support. Any ideas?

    AFAIK it was supposed to come out in September, but it being September 30th by now it might not happen. I have no doubt though that de dev's are working on getting it out the door.

    In the meantime I'm using the unstable banshee from the banshee unstable ppa, which works very well for me.

    I don't use Gnome DO and couldn't tell you whether the unstable version (Banshee 1.3.1) supports it.

    Apparently Banshee 1.4 is only due out in November, they have now even put a calender online showing the various dates.

    A bit more patience then, ah well, patience is a virtue I suppose...

    btw kudos for the banshee team for all their hard work, I'm sure the 1.4 release is gonna be awesome, even more so than 1.2!

    Edit: forgot to insert the link to the banshee development calender

    I can't wait For some reason, Banshee 1.2.1 has become very unstable for me since upgrading to Ibex.

    AFAIK banshee does not automatically refresh the media collection (unfortunately) but you can update your media collection through 'Extra' -> 'Rescan Media Library'.
    Just make sure you have the correct folder set up in your preferences otherwise Banshee will start to scan your entire /home.

    The good thing about not making Banshee automatically update your media collection is of course that this way Banshee will not have to check your entire media library everytime it starts. That should save a lot of time when starting Banshee, I guess...

    PS for the life of me I can't remember whether the rescan media library option is available in the current stable release, if it's not, then either update to the unstable release or wait about a month until 1.4 comes out

    Have you tried updating to the unstable version? Currently Banshee 1.3.2 is available through the unstable ppa.

    Have a look here:
    https://launchpad.net/~banshee-unstable-team/+archive

    To get everything working you'll have to add both the stable ppa and the unstable ppa to your repositories list, for ibex that'll be:

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ubuntu intrepid main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ubuntu intrepid main

    and

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-unstable-team/ubuntu intrepid main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-unstable-team/ubuntu intrepid main

    Treris, Banshee 1.3.3 from the Hyperair's PPA is very unstable. You can't even enter into the "preferences" dialog without a seg fault... Have you got the same problem?

    I mean, I know what unstable is, but not being able to switch songs it's kinda a setback from the current stable release! Are they rewriting the code or it's just a fault of Intrepid Ibex .deb?

    Re: When is Banshee 1.4 supposed to come out?

    Hi Tr4nce,

    Yes I did have the same problem with the 1.3.3 package from the ppa, so badly that I had to downgrade to 1.3.2 to 'fix' it. But it now seems to be fixed with the 1.3.3-2 package that came out earlier today.

    Try upgrading to that version and see if your problems are solved. If not try downgrading to the 1.3.2 package that worked previously. Easiest way to do that is to uninstall the current banshee package and then install the 1.3.2 package still available here:
    https://launchpad.net/%7Ebanshee-uns...ardy2_i386.deb

    Apparently there was a flaw in the previous 1.3.3 package and according to the changes file that was fixed now. Here's the information I found:
    http://launchpadlibrarian.net/191969...repid1.diff.gz

    Hope the new update solves your problems!
