RhythmArty browser plugin for rhythmbox

I love rhythmbox music player because it is lightweight and it just works. It does not have many fancy features. So, to make my rhythmbox experience more entertaining I decide to write a plugin for album art browsing, called RhythmArty. It search for embedded cover art and in folder cover art. It doesn't download covers from internet.

It is not as good as other players browser but works for me. I hope it will work for you too. Give it a try.

Talika 0.50 released

I just released new version of talika. I was away from linux for two months. As I use linux not so frequently now a days, future development will be slow. So, I quickly wraps up what i have done earlier and decided to release what was there in svn tree.

It may have lot of rough edges and you may not like it at all because of its gui changes and more memory usage than previous version. There are no translation updates.

Here is release announcement:

/**************** 0.50 ********************************/

This version has a lot of gui makeover and bug fixes.
New features are:

* Better icons
* Show pin option for pinnable apps
* Supports pinning via drag and drop
* Add option to show tasks from multiple monitors
* Option to close group with middle click
* Option to show preview on multiple windows only
* Better pininig support for openoffice & some wine apps (like picasa)
* Choose custom icon for launcher
* Many gui customization options
* And many more ( explore yourself )
