More News from the Front!

A quick update on two exciting developments:
  • Banshee now works on the .NET VM. Thanks to a tip from Javier of the Bibli@teca project who directed me toward a different set of GTK libraries.
  • Banshee now plays music. I've written a little DirectShow backend which provides all the niceties of playback: play/pause, seeking, volume control, &c. This is a temporary solution until I get GStreamer working, but it's nice to see this sucker actually do what it does.
That's all for now.

Eets Alive!

After weeks of fiddling and false starts, this was the scene on my screen some 120 seconds ago:

Banshee on Windows, baby!

Status Report 1

Well, not much to report unfortunately. I've been desperately trying to get all of the build dependencies up and running on Cygwin. No easy task. For a detailed account of everything involved, and for a continued report of progress, see my project scratch pad. Aaron is moving right now so I'm one my own for the next week or so. I'm going to concurrently start work on the port while I try to get my Windows development environment up and running.

As a post-script to my last post, I also added C# 3.0 Automatic Properties to gmcs. Look for that in SVN!
