This project is not part of the GNU Project.

It pretends to have the following features:

  • The PlayList and the Collection(s) are the same thing.
  • Yours is a Collection of Albums, nothing else[3].
  • Some Albums are from the same artists and some are compilations[3].
  • If you want an ephemeral playlist you could queue songs.
  • If you want non-ephemeral playlists, then this player is not for you.
  • Ability to search à la xmms, but in the same interface
  • Skinneable.
  • Tag reading and writing.
  • Order you collection based on the tags[3].
  • The collection discovers new files and adds them to the playlist on the fly[4].
  • Be able to use all the program only with your keyboard (die, mouse, die!)

This and other features should be available soon. The coding has been fast lately, mainly because the Qt/KDE libs are fantastic to work with. The only thing I couldn't do was to read the tags before playing them, so I relied in taglib and its python binding, tagpy.

[4] Of course this only works if it's running. Otherwise, you can
always ask for a rescanning[1]

Your favorite audio player is out... and satyr too! This is the first time satyr has proven to run from KDE's session (that is, it starts when you log in). Here's the changelog:

  * Remebers collections and selected skin. This means we can also recover with a X session.
  * python-qt4-phonon is a dep. This way we can run on unpatched systems.
  * The complex skin doesn't show the time slide bar until it can be shown on an unpatched system.
  * Fixed search.

The Changelog is not very impressive:

  * We can save the list of queued Songs on exit and load it at startup.
  * The queue position is not presented when editing the title of a Song that is queued.
  * Setting the track number works now (was a bug).
  * Fixed a bug in

but the last one is somewhat important. Go fort it.
