Description

Currently, album art is loaded in the main thread, blocking the UI code from running. On a slow storage medium or over a network, this can make Audacious unresponsive and/or slow to start. For 3.4, we should implement a queued request system where a plugin can call a non-blocking function to request an image and then listen for a hook to be called when the image has been loaded.
