Banshee 2.4.0 Released - Install on Windows, Fedora, Debian and Ubuntu
Banshee 2.4 has been released after six months of hard work by 31 developers, 33 translators and dozens of bug reporters and testers. It is a stable release, the successor to Banshee 2.2. Banshee 2.4 brings new feature set such as DVD playback support navigable via mouse and keyboard, as well as improved additional filters (genres and years) when in browsing content. Along with the UPnP support (browse and play music or videos shared over a local network or UPnP device), the 2.4 release comes with 91 bug fixes (since 2.2 version) and various minor enhancements.
This release is dedicated to Scott Thomas Peterson, who passed away a few months ago. He was a great guy and a valued contributor to the Banshee project and to the wider Mono community. In particular, he created the Mono.Upnp library which now powers our new UPnP support.
