cmus 2.5.0

It is my pleasure to announce cmus 2.5.0 "So Far" — next feature release following 2.4.0 back from April of 2011. It has been a long time since 2.4.3, also: almost a year has passed (meaning that cmus is remarkably stable). So, what such a long wait results in? Here are the highlights of the release:

  • CUE sheets support. When adding e.g. track.flac to the library, cmus will check for track.cue or track.flac.cue in the same directory. If it founds one, it will ignore the tags in track.flac and use CUE metadata instead
  • cdio input plugin, for those of you who still remember what a CD is :-)
  • support for WavPack .wvc correction files
  • new «zenburn» color scheme (as seen at http://cmus.sf.net/), and text attributes (bold/reverse/…) support for UI elements
  • improved tab completion, new scroll_offset and icecast_default_charset options, even better tag parsing and compilations handling, and numerous small enhancements all over the place.... read more

cmus 2.4.3

Before the winter begins,

I am happy to announce the release of cmus 2.4.3. This is the maintenance

caused by external library changes. Everyone is encouraged to upgrade, as
usual.

cmus 2.4.0

I'm pleased to announce cmus 2.4.0 "Easter egg", the long-awaited feature
release of cmus. Since 2.3.0 (more than a year ago!) tons of enhancements have
been made, both to cmus' internals, and to the user-visible parts.

Here is a short summary of the new stuff you will find in 2.4.0:

- Mutt-like short filters

E.g. "~a beatles (!~y1960-1965 | ~d>600)". This nicely complements
traditional cmus filters, especially with... read more

cmus 2.4.0-rc0

I'm pleased to announce cmus 2.4.0-rc0, first (and, hopefully, last :-)
release candidate for the long-awaited version 2.4.0.

With tons of changes to cmus' internals, three features really stand out for
end-users: live filtering, playback resume support and long format options,
including new %{codec} and %{bitrate}.

Live filtering is immensely useful and addictive feature, especially if you
have a huge music library. Press 'L' and start typing, and you'll understand
what I mean. To reset the live filter, type 'L<Enter>'. Also, there's no need
to e.g. type "Björk" to filter "Björk" — "bjork" (note: no 'ö') will do, cmus
is smart!... read more
