Congratulations on Audacious 3.3 ... hopefully the latest Audacious could be added to the official Ubuntu repositories (12.04 and 12.10)

Added by Pascual Lucero over 7 years ago

Hello,

I just want to congratulate you guys for releasing Audacious 3.3. Given that Audacious is the default Audio player in Lubuntu and Lubuntu is trying to get rid of applications depending on GTK+2.x in their default install (for 12.10), it is a good news for everybody that Audacious has this 3.3 version using only GTK+3; this is also a tendency in Ubuntu in general. I asked Julien Lavergne about having the latest Audacious in 12.10 and he said: "We are in sync with debian about audacious. If Debian package the new version before Feature Freeze, we will have it in 12.10."

I hope this can be done ... perhaps, even something like Audacious 3.4 could exist at that time (with even more improvements to this wonderful player) :)

Thanks

Actually, Audacious hasn't depended on GTK+ 2.x for some time now. 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2 all used GTK+ 3.x by default and only used GTK+ 2.x as a fallback.
