22/12/05: A new rewritten version of Jux is in git now, and is compatible with Dr Alban. It's currently a little light on features, but these are slowly going back in and being made "new and improved." There are likely to be a few bugs lying around as it's mostly new code, so a bit of testing would be much appreciated.
Juxtapose is a python client for the XMMS2 music daemon which uses the GTK2 toolkit. It tries to be a pretty decent all round music player, which can do a couple of nifty things but is still reasonably lightweight. It's released under the GPL so is free for the likes of yous.
- Playlist editor with full repeat, shuffle and move control. It handles at least as many music files as I have on my pc, possibly more!
- Medialib query constructor allowing you to quickly find music by your favourite artists. Also allows raw querying of the medialib, and other flashiness like random quries and sub-searching. For a bit more infomation on the medialib look here.
- Track rating, allowing you to search for your favourite songs either by individual artists, albums, or in your whole music collection.
- All of the other things players should be able to do, except the ones I've forgotten or haven't put in yet.
The latest beta realease:
Juxtapose v0.1 - api-compatible with XMMS2 DR2

Cheers to all the XMMS2 guys for making it and for hosting all my stuff on git, and also to everyone who has reported bugs so far. Also thanks to Ycarus for making the ebuilds.
