christine 0.1.3

This is a new bugfix release, most of them about encoding.
There is also an start up improvement. Loading just the song name and then in another subprocess fill the model with the whole data. Allowin christine installations with too much song in the list load in the half of the time. (In my machine christine load with 4000 song in 1.5 secs.)

Christine 0.1.2

There is a new Christine version. 0.1.2 wich fixes seveal bugs. There
are no new features, just bugfixes.

I hope, to have the time to give some love to christine in this week.

I notice today that start-up and search in chrsitine are a bit slower
using a bunch of songs (Test with ~14000). So, I need to optimize this.

Please feel free to download and test christine, there is a Ubuntu Gutsy
Gibbon package in the downloads section too.... read more

0.0.2

Yes,another development version, because some people have problems with the 0.0.1 tarball. I upload another tarball with the same name but in some mirrors the tarball is still corrupt. So, there is another file. I check it and it does work. I hope nobody else have the same problem.
