SongCat 0.7 is done! Alpha soon!

2017-06-27 19:40:15


With big pleasure, I would like to announce a new unstable build of SongCat. This version brings better radiostation management (it’s possible to remove selected items), song details  (viewing meta tags and editing them), an icon on the playlist with the currently-played song, a context menu on the playlist and a possibility of window resizing by mouse, and many fixes and quick improvements.
I’ve changed the release plan: alpha releases will be marked as 0.9, and beta as 1.0.
There will be 3 releases of alpha and (I hope) 2 of beta.  Currently, I can’t announce  the date of a stable release. I think it will be possible after the last alpha release.

SongCat 0.7 is available for download here.

After a long break, SongCat 0.6

Hi all!

Today, I published yet another build.

This compilation provides features like double-click to play on play queue, new playlists view with the possibility to add new playlists (currently without songs) and release information on settings view.  The most important news on this release is the first devilish build. What does it mean? SongCat 0.4 is the first release available for FreeBSD.

Remember! SongCat is still unstable. As previously, you can download SongCat here.
