Audacious is no more a fork of BMP Player
This article needs to have it's sources cited, however an editor appears to be constantly removing the fact tags and the 'unreferenced' template. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 02:05, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
What is MPRIS
This article cites MPRIS and it's far from obvious what mpris is. There's no article on wikipedi about mpris neither. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 02:19, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
Skins and/or lack thereof
I object to these statements in the article, as they seem to imply that Audacious 2 will completely lack skinning:
Audacious had full support for Winamp 2 skins, and as of version 1.2, some free-form skinning is possible.
Audacious 2.x will have a non-skinned UI which will better emphasize on many of the player's features which are poorly exposed in the UI.
As of October 2008, it appears that development has ceased???
As far as what is showing up from hg.atheme.org/audacious/summary, audacious2 is still under active development. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:09, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
- Is there a homepage, mailinglist, bugtracker or anything available right now?--18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:14, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
- The home page for Audacious Media Player is at www.audacious-media-player.org, but the link to the bug tracker is currently broken. Unfortunately, I can't find any way to contact the site maintainer to get it fixed. One can get into the bug tracker by going to www.atheme.org, but it doesn't seem to have much there, like it was ported from a previous version and the database didn't get imported properly. —QuicksilverT @ 23:58, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
I removed the section about "audlegacy". I do not see that that project is relevant here. (It is forked from an old and buggy version of Audacious, and has had a total of 8 changes in over a year since it was forked, most of which are nothing more than random imports of changes made in Audacious.) If someone wants to add the section again, please explain why you believe it is significant. John lindgren (talk) 17:49, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Backport from GTK+ 3 to GTK+ 2, announced port to Qt, migration from C to C++
June, 23rd 2014: In road to Qt, Audacious switches from GTK+3 back to GTK+2
- original announcement : http://redmine.audacious-media-player.org/boards/1/topics/1269
- http://redmine.audacious-media-player.org/projects/audacious/repository or https://github.com/audacious-media-player/audacious it seems there is a switch from C to C++
- another rant against GTK+ 3: http://redmine.audacious-media-player.org/boards/1/topics/1135
- Here: Software audio players (free and open-source) we find qmmp, an audio player in C++ using Qt without database
- When the switch is complete, somebody should add this article to Category:Software that was ported from GTK+ to Qt User:ScotXWt@lk 19:31, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
- It almost seems like the Wayland developers need either more insight from 3rd party developers or more help implementing missing stuff: http://www.glx-dock.org/mr_article.php?b=5&a=73
- Weston does client-side decorations, AFAIR KWin announced they will do server-side decorations (with Wayland), now I am not sure about GNOME's default Mutter (software). User:ScotXWt@lk 19:38, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Some background recherche reveals, that GTK+ 3.10 indeed removed support for the "Motif DND protocol", ref: GTK+ 3.10 released. See Motif, and I think DND stands for Drag and drop, a search reveals little: Motif DND protocol; Maybe the XDG-Shell protocol includes "drag and drop". User:ScotXWt@lk 10:41, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
