At last, Songbird 1.0 has been released!
I downloaded and installed it earlier today and it has been providing a pleasant back-drop to my working day by filling the air with a range of musical tweets and twitters. It is currently playing tunes by the spaced-out, psychedelic groove of the Ozric Tentacles (see www.ozrics.com too).
I’ve been following the development of Songbird and have tried out a few of its earlier incarnations – each of which has suffered from some minor glitch or other. So far things are looking much more stable for this version 1.0 release – easy installation, pretty speedy scan of the old hard drive for music files, tidy display of the album cover art, excellent sound and not a single hop, skip or jump during playback.
