Added features
Edit

  • Global copy/paste system
    You can now copy songs from any song list and paste them in the play queue or the playlist-editor. The copy-paste system can also be used to move block of songs inside a playlist or between playlists.
  • Easy Command
    Easy command is a gnome-do like interface to gmpc. This allows you to quickly add songs, play a certain songs or replace the play queue. More information .
  • Windows Installer
    There is now a nice easy to use installer for gmpc on windows. It installs gmpc and all the needed gtk files, add menu option and uninstall program.
  • Metadata Browser back/forward buttons
    The metadata browser now has browser-like back/forward buttons, allowing faster and easier navigation.
  • Initial albumartist support
    If mpd provides it, gmpc now can use the albumartist tag to fetch metadata more reliably.
  • Artist Image tooltip
    For the users that use gmpc in collapsed mode, there is a nice tooltip showing the artist image when hovering over the artist name in the player.
  • Customizable quick links in metadata browser
    Via the gmpc wiki, hyper links can easily be added to the links section of the metadata browser. e.g. Wikipedia links are now included by default.
  • Integrated search
    The search browser now gives you access to the magnatune and jamendo database as well (if plugins are installed). The search options also adjust to tags that actually can be searched.
  • Initial Sticker Support
    MPD from git allows you to attach "stickers" to songs. GMPC can use this to rate songs.
    This is still very basic and will improve when stickers in mpd evolves.
  • Server Information Page
    The serverstats plugin is now integrated into gmpc. This provides several statistics about your mpd database and configuration.
  • Integrated favorites support
    The favorites plugin is now integrated in the playlist-editor. Press ctrl-enter to add the current playing song to the special "Favorites" playlist.
