gtkpod (http://www.gtkpod.org) is a platform independent GUI for Apple's iPod using GTK2. It allows you to import your existing iTunes database, to add songs, podcasts, video and cover art and to edit ID3 tags. gtkpod also features international charset support for ID3 tags, detects when adding already existing songs, displays and manages the photo database and more.
More than a year has passed since the last release and gtkpod had some time to mature. Besides a complete redesign of the preferences dialog following GNOMES HIG guidelines, a search bar now allows to quickly filter tracks and lyrics are recognized in MP4 files as well now. An automatic thumbnail generator and rounds up the major changes.
