Version 1.0 of the Clementine music player arrives
The Clementine developers have published version 1.0 of their open source music player. The cross-platform application is designed to be fast and easy-to-use, and was inspired by version 1.4 of Amarok (the current release is Amarok 2.5). With Clementine, users can listen to their local music library or to online radio stations; it can be used to transcode music into MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Speex, FLAC and AAC files.
The major update adds support for the Spotify and Grooveshark music streaming services. A Global Search feature has been added that allows users to find music on their local system or on the internet. Other changes include audio CD support, and improvements to the settings dialog and album cover searches, as well as the addition of more transcoder options. A number of bugs found in the previous versions have also been fixed.
Further information about the release can be found in the news announcement post and in the change log. Clementine 1.0 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and various Linux distributions from the project's site. Hosted on Google Code, source code for Clementine is licensed under the GPLv3.
