Minitunes 1.0 is here

It has been a long time since the last Minitunes release. I’m happy to announce the availability of version 1.0. I decided to skip 0.x numbers as it seems many users outside the Free Software circles would consider the software as beta or alpha, which is not.

This version brings search to Minitunes, which was sorely missing. I tried to whip up a better icon as the previous one was a bit dull, hope you like it. Also two patches by Daniele S. allow the playlist to be restored across sessions and add a useful “Drop items here” message to the playlist when empty. More then 10 translations are included in this release. Thanks to all the people who worked to them on Transifex.

Minitunes has been recently included in Debian unstable and made its way to Ubuntu Oneiric. On the Mac side, I’m waiting for approval on the Mac App Store, which could be an opportunity to make this project sustainable. A Windows version will arrive soon.

Enjoy Minitunes!

In questa release è stata aggiunta la barra di ricerca, fondamentale per trovare velocemente un brano, il supporto al drag and drop delle canzoni, l’aggiunta di nuove lingue (arrivando così fino a 10 traduzioni), ed una nuova icona.

  9. It’s a great news! Can you post some screenshots, and release notes?
    What will be the licencing policy? I have a licence for the 0.1.1 version, do I have to buy Minitunes from the App Store again?

    • Flavio says:

      You’re probably confusing Minitunes and Minitube! Minitunes is a music player and it’s still not included in the App Store.

    Minitunes has been in PCLinuxOS for several months now, is an excellent application.

  13. Hello,

    I have an older laptop that is a single core Celeron @ 1.4GHz and 2GB or ram, so i run Xubuntu on it. I love to watch Youtube video and sometimes download them. This is much easyer than a Firefox plug in to download, I don’t have to convert to MP4, not all of the files with the videodownloadhelp plug in for Firefox will do that, with Minitube it happens automaticly, great! A great application, keep up the great work.

    Thaaaanks! I love this player, i’ve been using it for several months and has been theperfect option for me.
    Let’s try this version =)

    Love the app but… Seriously Flavio, when is sorting going to make it’s way in? This is the only thing that stops me from making MiniTunes my main media player. I have 34,000+ tracks spread across over 3,000 albums and 2,200 artists. I need to be able to sort that list! :)

    I hate resorting to the folder view as it isn’t anywhere near as attractive or fun and tends to run a little slow compared to the artist view.

    I installed it through the software manager in Mint 11 Debian right out of the repositories! Sweet!

    I’m not trying to be a whiner. I really do love Minitunes.

    I don’t know exactly what is wrong, but I can’t use minitunes in spanish language, Is it ready? by the way I really like minitunes, I just miss the hotkey ctrl + m (for KDE), a beauty icon for the systray and of course, to have it in spanish.

  18. Jurriaan says:

    Thanx! This is the best! And pretty to! I wanted to make a player like this for a long time. Waiting vigorously for the Windows version!
