0.4 DrKosmos

11th of November 1997 was a great day. This was the day when the first
public release of X11Amp (later renamed to XMMS) was made. Now ten
years later we celebrate this with a release of XMMS2.

XMMS2 0.4 DrKosmos contains the new official XMMS2 logo, a few new
plugins such as a PulseAudio output plugin and lots of bugfixes. Hope
you will have as much fun downloading, compiling and using it as we had
making it.... read more

XMMS2 0.2 DrDolittle

Holy handgranates! It's release time again! Much earlier than expected and much cooler than the critics claim! XMMS2 Team announces Dr. Doolittle. This release is forged by the wormholes of Stargate, Swedish schlager music, Chilean beaches and a lament for a loved one. DrDoolittle is a minor-feature-addition and bug-fix release instead of the expected major-break-the-world release. We decided that enough critical fixes and small features were available to make a release. You can watch the new Roadmap in order to see what's going on with future releases.... read more

Developer Release 2.2

More good news everyone! The XMMS2 Team is releasing another bugfix
release of the current Developer Release (DR2) called DR2.2.

Some outstanding issues have forced us to release another maintenance
release in the DR2 series instead of making a DR3 release, including the fixing
of a couple of huge memory leaks. Another annoying bug is that XMMS2
doesn't work at all with newer SQLite (3.2.5 and higher) releases because of a
policy change; we were misusing the API and they made such usage fail with a
hard error. This has not been fixed in this maintenance release since it is a
major change to our internal API. It will be fixed in the upcoming DR3 release.

Developer Release 1

After over two years of development, the XMMS Team releases the first preview of the next generation XMMS. XMMS2 is a complete rewrite of the XMMS codebase and has been focusing on portability, code separation and stability. An advanced feature of XMMS2 is that the music player process runs separately from the user interface in a client/server model. This simplifies the process of creating alternate user interfaces and allow interface developers to concentrate on designing the interface for their special need and not having to care about the music playing part.... read more
