Clementine 1.3 released

20 Apr

Clementine is a feature-packed cross-platform audio player and library manager. It is free software that was originally based on Amarok 1.4.

The new version 1.3 is a major release with a number of changes and fixes. Here are the ones I find the most exciting:

  • Vk.com and Seafile support
  • Ampache compatibility
  • Better sorting
  • A bunch of improvements to Spotify integration
  • A bunch of improvements in handling podcasts
  • Faster startup
  • Better ripping performance
  • New equalisers
  • Support for “original year” tag
  • New lyrics providers
  • A bunch of bugs squashed

You can find the download you need on the official website or on the GitHub release page. Make sure you get the 1.3.1 release (or above) if you use ratings and don’t want them to disappear.

If you get the following error:

GStreamer could not create the element: alsasink. Please make sure that you have installed all necessary GStreamer plugins (e.g. OGG and MP3)

… make sure you have selected the right output in your preferences (Tools > Preferences > Playback > Audio Output). In my case, I had to tell Clementine to use Jack (I am using the KXStudio 14.04 ISO).
