Rhythmbox Applet 0.1.9 Released

Rhythmbox Applet 0.1.9 is now out, ahead of time for the upcoming Rhythmbox 0.9.2 release. And there’s some pretty long-awaited changes coming your way. Take a look:

  • Added D-Bus support! Rhythmbox Applet now works with Rhythmbox 0.9.2 and later, in addition to Rhythmbox 0.8.8 and earlier.
  • Streamlined the appearance of the applet to reduce clutter.
  • The applet’s background color now changes along with the panel it’s in.
  • Added French (fr) translation, contributed by Ersplus. Thanks!

  1. Hi,
    I have a feature request for the applet. I would like to be able to display the current song playing in the form Artist – Title where the current playing time is displayed. I would also like the ability to turn off the playing time, much like you can with the “show rating control” option.

    Regards
    Nic Pullan

  2. What if you could select which information (title, artist, album, elapsed time, others?) was displayed, and if more than one option were selected, it would cycle through each every few seconds, sort of like how iTunes does it?

    There’s also the question of what to do if there isn’t much room available in the panel and the information you want to display is very long. Ellipsize it (ick) or scroll it (double ick), I guess.
