Name        : audacious
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 2.2
Release     : 10.fc12
URL         : http://audacious-media-player.org/
Summary     : GTK2 based media player similar to XMMS
Description :
Audacious is a media player that currently uses a skinned user interface
(based on Winamp 2.x skins) as well as a separate GTK2 based front end.
Historically, it started as a fork of Beep Media Player (BMP), which
itself forked from XMMS.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Rough times ahead!    * This is an upgrade to Audacious 2.2 including a couple
of patches. Please also apply the separate update for the mcs library.    *
Audacious 2.2 has been declared a "stable release" by its developers, but Fedora
12 users found enough issues with Audacious 2.1 -- the previous "stable release"
-- so that even after squashing lots of reported bugs, some problems remain. Due
to major changes in some parts of Audacious 2.2, the core developers cannot tell
whether some rare bugs are fixed. The upgrade to 2.2 is a trade-off between
getting actual improvements/fixes in 2.2 and the risk of new breakage. In either
case, the upgrade to 2.2 will reduce the number of patches in Fedora's packages
and will hopefully help with improving Audacious further.    * If you use
additional plugin packages from 3rd party repositories, please be patient and
wait for their package updates. The plugins for 2.1 will not work with 2.2 due
to a changed input plugin API.    * If you need a Musepack SV7 file format
player, you need to watch out for the "ffaudio" plugin in a 3rd party
repository. The "musepack" plugin (based on libmpcdec) has been discontinued.
* If you need a MIDI file player, install audacious-plugins-amidi as the old
plugin based on libtimidity has been discontinued.    * If you need a SID file
player, install the separate audacious-plugins-sid package for a plugin based on
libsidplay 1. Third party repositories may provide a package for a plugin based
on libsidplay 2.    * If you use the ALSA output driver without Pulse Audio,
Audacious 2.2 includes a new driver called "alsa-gapless". You may need to
readjust your audio output preferences in Audacious.

ChangeLog:

* Thu Jan 28 2010 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-10
- Fix tuple_copy() further (it was completely broken as the mowgli
  dict wasn't copied at all).
* Thu Jan 28 2010 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-9
- Let set_tuple_cb() work on a copied tuple
  (the metadata updates flood is too racy IMO).
- Fix tuple_copy().
* Wed Jan 27 2010 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-8
- Change build_stamp from "UNSUPPORTED VERSION" to "Fedora package".
- Always add category AudioVideo to .desktop file for safety reasons.
* Sat Jan 23 2010 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-7
- Patch filename_find_decoder to probe a file if multiple decoders
  compete with eachother to handle files with the same extension.
  This also merges the 2nd chunk of the disabled-iplugins patch.
* Sun Jan 17 2010 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-6
- In audacious.pc link with -laudcore instead of -laudclient (AUD-125).
  This removes a superfluous libaudclient dependency from all plugins and
  adds a libaudcore dependency. So far, plugins that use libaudcore
  had undefined symbols instead.
* Thu Jan  7 2010 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-5
- Apply fix for seeking to -1 milliseconds, causing a hangup (AUD-99).
* Thu Dec 31 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-4
- Added another fix to the disabled-iplugins patch.
* Wed Dec 30 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-3
- Patch Audacious so that filename_find_decoder only considers
  enabled input plugins (disabled modplug plugin effectively disabled
  also the xmp plugin).
* Wed Dec  2 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-2
- Drop Musepack and SID MIME types from desktop files. As of Audacious 2.2,
  Musepack is only supported by the separate "ffaudio" plugin. The SID
  plugin in a separate subpackage provides its own desktop file.
- Drop unsupported MIME types from desktop files.
* Wed Nov 25 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-1
- Upgrade to 2.2 (declared as the next "stable release" after 2.1).
* Tue Nov 10 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-0.1.beta2
- Upgrade to 2.2-beta2
* Thu Oct 22 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-0.1.beta1
- Upgrade to 2.2-beta1
* Sun Oct 18 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-0.1.alpha2
- Upgrade to 2.2-alpha2
