Exaile 4.0.0 released!

More than four years after the last Exaile 3.4.5 release, we’re happy to announce that Exaile 4.0.0 “Perfect is the enemy of good” has been released!

About the codename

It has been a really long time since the previous release, and if we’re honest a 4.0 release should have happened a long time ago. Exaile continues to be a mature, stable audio player, and continues to do the things we want it to do, well. Thank you to our longtime users who have continued to report bugs and make fixes, and to everyone who contributed and made this release possible.

We’re really excited about a new capability to automatically build releases without developer intervention, and we expect that future releases will be much more frequent as Exaile development occurs.

About the release

Visually, longtime users will recognize Exaile 4.0.0 as the latest iteration of Exaile, as it will feel very similar to previous releases. However, internally 4.0.0 is a significant change from 3.4.5! The biggest change in Exaile 4 is that it uses GTK+ 3 and GStreamer 1. Existing users are strongly recommended to upgrade because GStreamer 0.10, used in earlier versions, is unmaintained and may contain security issues.

There are far too many improvements and bugfixes to mention here. Please refer to our 4.0.0 Release notes on Github for details.
